BAC Mission: OccupyGlass
"Elite technology for the 99%!"
Deadline: March 10, 2014
We have an opening to exploit an emergent tech and gain a tactical advantage in the struggles ahead.
Boutique Activist Consultancy founders Micah White and Chiara Ricciardone have been tapped to enter Google's Glass Explorer Program, an invite-only program that puts Glass into the hands of "bold, creative individuals who want to help shape the future."
Glass is a potential force multiplier—like barricades in 1848 and general assemblies in 2011. Glass is heavy artillery in the meme war and BAC will be the first to dedicate two Glasses to the people's struggle.
What are the applications of Glass for revolution? How can Glass facilitate the people's experiment in global self-governance? Let's find out.
If you can help us cover the cost of investing in Glass, you will deliver a powerful weapon to the wonderful, trusted activists of BAC and Zuccotti. In return, we dedicate this Glass back to you and the global people's movement.
Thank you so much.
Warm regards from the people's coast,
-The Founders of BAC
p.s. Here's an article Micah wrote critiquing Google in 2010: Google is polluting the Internet.
