Next year, Rome. How can we not.
The Hypertext Conference also includes Social Networks and the most interesting/disturbing as apsect was the “it’s not my fault” view of those describing alogos do detect ‘bad’ behaviour. One person’s saviour is another’s oppressor. Simply believing we are good doesn’t mean we are. We need better, more behaviourally mature analysis than “people not in our gang are good, therefore anyone not in our gang must be bad”. So dies democracy. We need more articulate technical folk.
IMO, the privilege of modern democracy is the right to not belong to a gang, aka (political) party, where our view is pre-sold to the party’s end.
