Reboot lecture: Liberation Technology

“[Gwendolyn Floyd and Joshua Kauffman of Regional] gave a talk about the burgeoning field of liberation technology, synthesizing their studies from both developing world and leading-edge technological and social environments. The talk outlined their vision for how technologies liberate societies at critical developmental inflection points – including our own. They outlined our arrival at the new commons, which is the knowledge of our shared resources, and discussed the possibility of liberation coming through integration into each other and our greater ecologies. Spanning micro-democracies to the suburbanization of the internet and the “mobile phone as the new AK47,” the slides and notes are available here.”
