As I stated in my last post it has been a rediculously long time since I have written anything on my blog. This is particularly bothersome to me given the fact that there are many important issues that I feel I could contribute to. However, if I continue to wait until I have time to write up the whole shabang before I even start, I'll simply never do it. So I figured I should at least start by throwing together a list of things I would write about if I had the time. Who knows, perhaps you'll end up telling me what I should write about first.
The Koumbit Project
So, apparently, I've been a little lazy with respect to my blog. It's not as though I haven't been busy though. Anyway, I'm about to go on a little vacation so I thought I'd bundle up a little news...
The most significant project that I am involved in at the moment is the creation and consolidation of an activist-geek-worker's-coop in Montreal called Koumbit. The ultimate goal is to have two legal entities: a non-profit that allows organisations and individuals to pool resources and influence the development of the communications technologies that we are all increasingly dependent on; and a worker's coop that enables geeks to make a living while working within a technologically sophisticated AND progressive context.
