Assume a radical commitment to freedom and accessibility. Call it Software Anarchism. Support the 4 Opens with open source and open data being specifically relevant. Forget the tech for a second. What does that look like socially? How do we build that under capitalism?
I think we have the tools already to do it, but we're not having conversations about labor and money yet in a way that leads to action

Nice work, coopting the franchise concept. Let me know if there's something I can do to pitch in. I have a really diverse tech, volunteer, and community management background and a little experience in small business

In any case, thanks in advance for any help or thoughts you might have.
