Re: <nettime> How the tea party is rewriting the rule book for political organizing


Hi Michael,

thanks for forwarding this snippet. It illustrates how important it   
is to keep in mind that 'open source' or 'the commons' are nothing    
inherently progressive, but that such networks can be run on sharing  
not love but hate, extending fear, rather than trust.                 

It reminds me of a series of very intriguing blog-posts, written few
years ago, on open source warefare, mainly referring to the iraqi
insurgency:
