Re: <nettime> Facebook

Even though it might seem trite, I think that a return to the rhetoric of Barlow's Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace is not the worst idea. In some ways, it could be updated to say that you had your chance; all it has done has subjugated the internet with capitalism and ignorance.  While I don;t expect a grand Digital Spring, nor do I think that the networks de refusees are teh answers either, I feel a much more subtle social shift is in order, and I see the potential of it in the Post-Trump world if we do not let the fragmentation that has compounded itself upon polarization drag everything further into the abyss.
