The Revolution Will Be Streamed

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

I have a new piece at Huffington Post looking at how personal technology and social networking are changing the face of protest, and shifting the balance of power.

    I think this has the makings of a good book. A cold war between the police and technology. The cameras and microphones keep getting smaller and the police resort to EMP blasts to disable them. Faraday cages, nanotechnology, implanted cameras and microphones, biological recording systems, etc.

    Protests really not relevant to any subject found on this sight….actually not relevant to anything in reality. :D Just wanted ta letcha know. :)

    I, for one, am glad there are careful watchers like “umm” who are brave and caring enough to tell you what to write on your own blog, Radley. Lord knows the sort of morale degenerating nonsense you’d slip into without this sort of help.

    I liked this current reality better when it was just Warren Ellis’ novel “Crooked Little Vein”.

    Although it appears some folks (cough, cough, #2, cough) are still wishing this reality was fictional. As D. Lithwick said, “It takes a walloping amount of willful cluelessness to look at a mass of people holding up signs and claim that they have no message.”
