The WELL: Bruce Sterling and Jon Lebkowsky: State of the World 2017
But, "the Internet" is done already. It had a great historic arc,
but it maxed out on its own excesses and unconfronted issues, much
like the Space Age and atomic power did. Anybody who still thinks
"net neutrality" is the be-all and end-all of the modern tech biz
can go somewhere where they still enjoy net neutrality -- the
flatness, the small pieces loosely joined, the permissionless
innovation, etc.

Go to Iceland, maybe. Sure: go start a no-permission Internet
website in Iceland. Birgitta Jonsdottir will be nice to you, you
might even get fan mail from Wikileaks. Otherwise, it's quite like
building your own crystal-set ham radio. Nobody will stop you,
because it just doesn't matter.

Off Our Butts | June Thunderstorm
Our lives are beautiful and precious. Our lives, despite what the bosses say, are actually for our own enjoyment, not to make others’ lives easier, cleaner, and lazier. As long as the value of professionals’ lives is not measured primarily in terms of their effects on others, but according to their pleasure, so shall our own lives and value be measured.

When everything is a lie, power is the only truth
That’s where Donald Trump’s lies are taking us. By attacking the very notion of shared reality, the president-elect is making normal democratic politics impossible. When the truth is little more than an arbitrary personal decision, there is no common ground to be reached and no incentive to look for it.
