RT @hackerklubben: "We’re incapable of conceiving politics as a communal activity because we have become habituated to being consumers rather than citizens. Politicians treat us as consumers to whom they must deliver; we grumble about politics as consumers do about a disappointing product or service. Shock and buyers’ remorse are the only fitting attitudes towards politics conceived as an extension of shopping."
"The old promise of the internet — niche communities, human connection, people exchanging ideas, maybe even paying each other for the work they’d made — never really lost its appeal, but this year it came back with a miniature vengeance."

New Years resolutions to be jotted down. Shoot me with your best resolutions for 2018! Stuff to learn, shit to do. Keep it anti-consumerist, pro environment and social good. More FLOSS? How and what? Communal projects? Creative endeavors? We've got an election in Sweden in 2018, how do we fight the good fight? INSPIRE ME!
