Reykjavík Rising

“Only when the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can not eat money.”

Taking back the Net

Tech savvy entrepreneurs take back the network during the Occupy New York movement. They had developed a software / hardware solution to wirelessly network and spread information.

It seems like a very obvious next step for the makers that they develop a portable polling station to improve the accessibility of local voting on issues for instance in an area of a city. Imagine if at the general assembly demonstrators would have been allowed to vote via a server, it would be ingenious and empowering at the same time, minimizing the headache of direct-democracy and making decisions on the spot.
