“I don’t want to say we’re making our own Facebook. But, we’re making our own Facebook,” said Ed Knutson, a web and mobile app developer who joined a team of activist-geeks redesigning social networking for the era of global protest.
They hope the technology they are developing can go well beyond Occupy Wall Street to help establish more distributed social networks, better online business collaboration and perhaps even add to the long-dreamed-of semantic web — an internet made not of messy text, but one unified by underlying meta-data that computers can easily parse.
The impetus is understandable. Social media helped pull together protesters around the globe in 2010 and 2011. Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak so feared Twitter and Facebook that he shut down Egypt’s internet service. A YouTube video posted in the name of Anonymous propelled Occupy Wall Street from an insider meme to national news. And top-trending Twitter hashtags turned Occupy from a ho-hum rally on Sept. 17 into a national and even international movement.
Now it’s time for activists to move beyond other people’s social networks and build their own, according to Knutson.
Any reason to leave Facebook is a good reason
In addition to the objectionable content of the newsletters, his odd explanation contrasts heavily with his hard-earned brand as an unconventional anti-politician who always tells the truth as he sees it and never waters down his views to pander to voters. It’s hard to square this with a candidate who claims that he somehow never bothered to read a newsletter published under his own name that generated as much as $1 million in revenues in just one single year. Even accepting that premise, how many politicians looking to start a publication would just happen to pick a half-dozen writers with blatant white supremacist and milita leanings to run the effort?
Shit, now we know where Rand gets it from.

What if Obama, who has admitted to violating our nation’s drug laws, had been treated like a common criminal — what if he hadn’t been insulated by growing up in Hawaii and attending a predominately white university — where would he be now? Most likely, he would be cycling in and out of prison, trapped in the parallel social universe that exists for those labeled felons. Far from being president of the United States, he might be denied the right to vote. He would be subject to many of the same forms of discrimination, stigma, and social exclusion that we supposedly left behind. How many black men and boys are trapped in this undercaste who might have been president of the United States? We will never know.
America drug policy and prison system and the stigma attached to our brothers and sisters behind iron can’t be understated. Read and think on this.
P.O.S. – Purexed. A member of Doomtree. On tour soon. This song psychs me up! Any MC that shouts out Fugazi on a track is my kind of dude.
Shout out to xzoto1 on SA for sharing this epic epic track!
Even the RIAA don’t want to pay for Jay-Z and and Kanye music. Ouch.
Somebody’s getting fired for this. Or maybe the RIAA can prosecute itself. Hurray for double standards.
Help fund Sol’s new album ‘Yours Truly’. Donate at a variety of levels and get some really cool perks for it. Shit, donate $500 and hang in the studio or $1,000 for a private show! Damn!
Seriously, Sol’s a great artist and a really cool dude (met him briefly on the Cinemetropolis tour), and if you have some extra holiday green, toss it his way.

De La Soul. Do I need to say more?
The Meek shall inherit the earth, but don’t forget, the poor are the ones who inherit the debt – De La Soul – The Grind Date
Wish we could play this on the show.
Some seriously solid acts up this year. A$AP Rocky, Detroit man Danny Brown, Casey Veggies, Macklemore, & Smoke DZA are some of our highlights. I won’t tell you who to vote for, but I will say this: only one person on this list has been kind enough to respond to our requests to podcast their music. In fact, he was THE FIRST to give us permission!
That man, just back from his 27 city tour with Ryan Lewis, is Macklemore. Good luck to all. Voting ends Jan 1st…which is pretty soon.

“It’s a great embarrassment for the conservatives that they want to tell people…’Who can I have sex with? Who can I marry? What can I read? What can I smoke?’ You guys—on the whole, not all of you—but the conservatives are the ones who intrude on personal liberty there.”
Thank you Barney Frank (I dont know how you can sit that close to Paul Ryan without taking his fucking head off). But, Barney is much classier man then I.
