We live in revolutionary times. When we started, our tools were playthings, hobbies. Fun. Now they power our planet. Open, agile, hybrid, and distributed ways of working, ways of thinking, and organising human collective endeavour have literally changed everything. But not everything is open, and not all change is good. Let's examine some of these threads. Let's explore where, and how they intertwine, so we might continue to pursue positive, open, and inclusive change. YouTube: LA Archive:
