Activists, Anarchists, and Revolutionaries are now morphed into "self-
sufficient hipsters and hackers." Thanks.
Basically, I don't believe it. "How to" manuals already exist on the
web. This is nothing new. Even collaborative "how to" manuals exist
on the web. I think these kinds of things can be useful, and are one
aspect of what potential the internet has.
However, it seriously lacks what would make a fine activist/anarchist
a) interaction with and action within the real world.
Just because I know how to turn my crappy speakers into awesome
headphones doesn't really mean what I'm doing is politically or
socially important, other then I made the choice (this time) not to
go out and buy.
b) social interaction with some dramatic and politically significant
Just because me and you edit a page together doesn't make you my
friend, it doesn't mean I trust you in any significant way, and it
doesn't mean that our unstable and vague relationship means something
