would be super excited

Yeah, I'd be happy to give a quick talk or round table on this. I work
with her & the rest of the group, and built the main website -- here's
some background on our most recent tech project:
We continue to build tools that help debtors band together and resist
their debts and are always looking for people to help contribute to

I thought you would all enjoy this talk from Astra Taylor
Listened to this on my way to work.
I think it'd be fun to play one of these videos on our SudoRoom television
Thursday or Friday evening during one of the Linux installfests.
We have a lot of really smart people here, it'd be cool if they gave a five
minute or ten minute talk on something like this - especially if it was
around stuff going on in the SudoRoom and collectives in Oakland. I'd
certainly forward this and tell people on the way to work to listen =D
Astra Taylor was also part of the group that collectively bought private
debt and forgave a lot of college loans.
The Internet is said to be a space of democratic expression and
transformation, both culturally and politically. But how true is that claim?
What are some of the economic, technical, and legal obstacles in place?
Drawing from her recent book, "The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and
Culture in the Digital Age," and her experience as an artist and an
activist, Astra Taylor -- filmmaker, writer, and political organizer --
addresses campaigns by musicians against streaming services and debtors
against creditors to reflect on the larger question of how to organize and
leverage change in an age of virtual networks -- be they networks of
cultural distribution or financial ones.
