As a contributor to the PublicSpaces initiative that strives to reclaim the Internet as a force for the common good, I have developed and submitted a proposal to the SXSW PanelPicker that is now live [UPDATE: voting is closed now] for community voting!
Many essential applications on the Internet, while being indispensable tools in our lives as economic and social citizens, have turned into vehicles for political control and economic profit. Citizens are no longer subjects, but objects. […] This panel discusses the Public Spaces roadmap for an alternative ecosystem that is being implemented and co-developed by a growing alliance. It also sheds light on the public outreach strategy of the initiative.Excerpt from the panel description.
