I was talking to my mate Glenn Vassallo this morning about the comments I made on G'DAY WORLD last night that if Doc Searls is right, and our governments side with telcos to try to regulate the hell outta the innanet, I will personally make it my mission to mobilize the people in a civil war against them.
BUT - then I realized, I don't own any guns and wouldn't know what to do with one even if I did.
So what do geeks do? March on the capital armed with laptops and ipods to throw at our oppressors?
And that's when I conceived the idea of "THE MILLION GEEK MARCH". I can see it now... a million geeks around the world, marching on their capital city, shouting
"REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD.... An Old Klingon Proverb".
Is this what Doc has in mind when he says we need to get organized? Is Doc the next MLK or the geek Rosa Parks?
Anyway, are you with me? Will you march on Canberra / Washington / London / <insert capital city here> and face off with your legislators and let them know that geeks are not to be trifled with?
Are you ready to show them what a million angry geeks look like? Do you have your D&D incantations ready? Do you have your Official Prop Replica of Sauron's Ring?
Will you stand up for the innanet?
