A program is a process, not a thing. This also applies to life, the universe, and everything.

Individuality for the Masses

[via BoingBoing]

http://www.individual-i.com/

Bruce Schneier has come up with the idea of promoting individual rights via the awesome power of branding, as the peace symbol did for the anti-war movement. I think it's a good idea, though the complexities can be harder to explain than "killing is wrong." (Of course, the anti-war movement was more complex as well, but the basic message seems easier to get across...). Here's the gist from the site:

Individual-i stands for:
  • Freedom from surveillance
  • Personal privacy
  • Anonymity
  • Equal protection
  • Due process
  • Freedom to read, write, think, speak, associate, and travel
  • The right to make your own choices about sex, reproduction, marriage, and death
  • The right to dissent

These are all things I can support. I hope this idea spreads like memefire.

It needs a hand gesture, though. How about the sign-language alphabetic "I" held to the chest?

You rss feed seems a bit crappy (look at http://planetpython.org to see the mess)
 
Why individual-i.com? Why not lp.org?
