Values

A number of people here have been saying that decentrized networks (a.k.a. bottom-out, network-centric, etc.) are inherently progressive. But those who make the tools claim they’re value-neutral.

The right wing has made great use of grassroots. Look at churches, or
the school-board takeovers of the 90’s. I hope these geeks don’t think
they’re making social change just because they’re making tools.

Bill says he doesn’t care who uses his tool. Would he do business with the Christian Coalition? I hope not.
