Mobile is a gated world where you have to ask permission to build a new cool thing and put it in an app store. There has never been a more important time than now to roll up our sleeves and build it, teach it; loosen the gatekeeper’s grip.

I found this via last week's Mozilla Open Badges conference call.. and it reminds me a little of Metamaps, although feels totally different.

Thank you Ishan. To give a first impression of how the

I know some of you following me are interested in the future of money. Here's the beginning of a proposal from fellow Mozillian +Daniel Buchner for bringing the action into the browser.. which is exactly where the action needs to be!
 
Browser vendors could make donations, tips, paying friends, and value transfer stupid-easy by implementing a simple digital wallet semantic and trusted browser UI. #Bitcoin #Browsers #Firefox #Chrome

Decorating the Mozilla Boston office with the +Mozilla Webmakers #makerparty table cloth that's been sitting in my room the past few months. Looks great, but I think the space needs some more conference scale swag/posters to make it really feel like home.

"But this is more important than immigration reform cash piles. This is more important than the FTC’s antitrust law against Google, for which the company hired 12 lobbying firms and spent at least $13 million. This is more important than the fight against SOPA and PIPA, for which the Internet companies came together in united opposition, which included a Wikipedia blackout and a special Google doodle to mark the occasion. This is more important than patent litigation reform and immigration reform, in support of which tech leaders have been flying into Washington to meet with the President. Silicon Valley should be pouring more resources into the debate about surveillance than any of those endeavors. It needs to exert the full might of its political muscle in a push for reform. It can’t just be a participant. At this point, it is so intrinsically tied to the NSA and our daily lives that it has to be a leader."

Introduction

As we move further into the 21st century, the implications of accelerating technological change continue to outpace our ability to cope with them.  We' are at risk of leaving the majority of our global population within the long tail of the acceleration curve as the literacy gap exponentially widens.

We have but one viable direction to take: to strategically speed up the progression of key social and technological advancements that increase our Agency (the human capacity for action).

I've set my sights on making the web stronger and more resilient in ways that ultimately empower people within the contexts of personal development as well as incubating local creative economies.

Let's play!
