@frank stronger sense of urgency, now that the negative impact of web silos is visible (wasn't visible in 2005). Any technology/method: that the principles of the open web (free to use, alter, tinker, control, trust by you/your group) also apply to other techs (for instance energy production, blockchain, biohacking, open source hardware, cheap computing hardware, algorithms, IoT sensors and actuators) and methods (p2p, community building, socia media usage/production, group facilitation etc.). Only then are they truly empowering, otherwise you're just the person it is 'done to'.
@jeremycherfas anecdotal/hunch mostly. The despair I encounter with various people here in NL certainly centers around feeling powerless in the face of change and sensing rules/institutions not addressing such change. And from the other side, where ability to act is found, the enormous energy it creates. See www.zylstra.org/blog/2018... where I talked about this in relation to some projects I worked on.
