The following video was published on July 4th 2013 as part of an Indiegogo crowd funding program. July 4th, more commonly known as Independence Day, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
By studying history’s greatest revolutions I discovered that they were all preceded by a paradigm shift in communication technologies. The paradigm shift from scrolls to the printing press produced the American Revolution, French Revolution, and Scientific revolution. The paradigm shift to mass media produced the countercultural revolutions of the 60s.
Each paradigm shift in communication platforms produced a quantum leap in the number of people who could be exposed to revolutionary ideas and ideologies. And in turn, each produced a revolution that that was exponentially larger than the last. With the introduction of the Internet mankind is on the verge of a world-wide revolution of Biblical proportions.
The Internet Revolution Manifesto – a manifesto, of, by, and for the 99% is a declaration of independence for the world-wide-web.
