America’s Finest City

The phrase “Digital Revolution” is not a metaphor. It’s an accurate description for a self-assembling organized resistance movement against a fortress of senselessness. We are the consequence of a rebel force armed with bits and bytes who’s rallying cry was “information wants to be free.” When an international coalition of governments can’t figure out how to give people shelter and water in a crisis, we want to. When the telecommunications industry can’t deliver a way for friends and families to connect over distance when the lines fall down and the power goes out, we want to. And we don’t let government coalitions and the captains of industry get in our way. Information wants to be free. And we want to be free to do and get done.
