"Undermining my electoral viability since 2001."

Rushing on my Run

So this is the ethic: start something.

If you have an idea, put it out there. You don't have to make it on your own; start a damn project. Get your friends involed. See who else in the work is doing things that are similar or connected. Be the first node on your new network.

One thing I want the larger effort around The Book to be is a thing to hook into, a portal for networking, but in a smaller trusted way rather than the huge MySpace way. Fundimentally it's the internet's value at large, the global always-on citizen's band, but people need a little help making the most of it. So we're here to make it happen. We need to grow it, to push around the margins. Value exists at the edges. There are a lot of exciting projects online... and a lot of exciting projects in bringing more of the world on board.

It's imperative that we see the 1st amendment in 21st Century terms as the right to puublish online. A citizen's right. May take a while for us to get a supreme court ruling, but the truth is that we'll never get that if we don't create the facts on the ground.

This is the first step towards participatory media since they regulated Citizens Band and Shortwave radio into obscurity.

It's a big deal. Read this now.
