Resilience, Yochai Benkler-stylee

A superb close to ouisharefest2016 by Yochai Benkler. This in particular:

It's not enough to build a decentralised technology if you do not make it resilient to re-concentration at the institutional, organisational or cultural level. You have to integrate for all of them.

His attack on what happens when all your institutions have homo economicus built into their DNA is sweet and to the point, putting all the words I waste chewing over this stuff in its place.

p.s. 7 out 17 target blog entries? Not gonna complain, that was the biggest sustained burst of non-academic-focused writing for a good while.
