Saturday, April 30th I will be in Capri for the Trendwatching Festival 2011. It looks like a more glamorous event than the ones I usually participate in; I don’t know what to expect exactly, but it seems that wiki style collaboration between authorities and citizens has been promoted to trend status. Works for me (Facebook event).
Speaking of Wikicrazia, recently an American publisher showed some interest in the book. I’d love him to read it, but there is a problem: he does not read Italian. So I tried a lateral approach, sending him English language links and materials; but in the end it felt like the core idea of the book was missing from those materials, and that is that Internet enables us to have an impact on society as individuals, not just as representatives of organizations. So I made this video, also a good way for me to celebrate Liberation Day (April 25th, the day the Nazi Army was kicked out of Italy by the partisans and the Allied armies – but the partisans came first in most cities). If you are curious about the sources, you can find them here.
