In A Better World

In a better world we will have more fully adopted Open Source as our standard, and we will build our organizations around community and collaboration. Instead of allowing beauracratic leaders make poor choices of paradigm and program, developers and users would be the collaboration that decides what solution to implement. In a better world we will have a President that will know something about technology and would support a revolution in communication. In a better world we wouldn't worry so much about greed taking over people's hard work.

And on January 20, 2009, that better world will come as President Obama takes office. He will fight with the people for network neutrality, to ensure fair and open access to all. He will build a stronger communication infrastructure to facilitate communication and collaboration, and put more pressure on companies to open their networks while preventing illegal spying. We would enjoy a better world, more open, more communicative, and more collaborative. It's coming.
