Posts Tagged ‘Revolutionary Thought

Someone who recently read my book The Dream Chip said she thought I predicted The Arab Spring. It was a nice complement but doubtful. She said the last paragraph of The Dream Chip predicted The Arab Spring.

Not so, I replied. What the last paragraph of The Dream Chip predicted or predicts is that the internet would and will be used globally for revolutionary purposes. I do in fact lay claim to being the first to make that observation long before most people even knew what the internet was.

You may or may not know that much of the organizational activity for the various Arab Spring uprisings occurred on Facebook and Twitter, the rallying, the announcements of impromptu marches, much of the revolutionary activity was advertised on social networking sites, in essence the internet. Hence, the reader’s claim that The Dream Chip predicted The Arab Spring.

“The people of the earth revolve…”

Today, I helped your princess learn to read in English. God is with you.
