Quotes:

"We are not after a bigger share of the existing pie, we want to make a new pie, that is big enough for all of us."
"If you can not imagine a better future, support those who can"
"Skepticism and cynicism are the biggest obstacles to change"
"The Internet has great potential, but it is has to change, we want to make a 'SUPERNET' where everyone has security and the opportunity to thrive based on the merit of their work"
"The status quo is never the best for the future, assuming it was ever the best. Armies resistant to change are formidable, but not impossible to defeat"
"It's amazing how quickly some come to accept the unacceptable without questioning the morality and ethics of the situation"
"People believe change is necessary but only when people believe it is possible will it become a reality"
"The injustice of the safe harbour laws must be stopped, every day we allow safe harbour laws to exist we put more $millions into the pockets of the GAFA's and put more creative people out of work."
"Before you can be brave enough to change you have to fear what will happen if you do not change."
"Before you fear change ask yourself 'who is benefiting from the status quo?' Then ask 'who is telling you to fear change?'"
"Who says people won't pay for music anymore? Of course they won't if they can not get it for free... all the evidence points to the fact when we have to pay fot it, because it is not available on Spotify or youTube, we do pay for it!"
"By not supporting creators rights to be paid for their work you open the door to the injustices of abuse"
"Paying people give's them time to pursue that which you pay them to do, by not paying people to create you give them more time to destroy."
"We can not wait to be given back our rights, we must take them!"
"If you want people to hear you, you must speak up'
"The more people who say no to the unacceptable the louder the squeaky wheel sounds and the more likely it is to get the oil."
"Do nothing is not an option"
"Life is a reflection of ourselves. If all we feel is hopelessness... it will be so."
"A realist can be someone who is not able to imagine how good things could be or someone who is not able to trust humanity to be moral and just?"
"An optimist can be someone who can imagine a better world, someone who trusts that most humans are inherently good and kind"
"What we are told about how impossible it is to stop abuse on the Internet is the reason it has to change"
"History repeats itself, every revolution, whether it be the printing press or Television or Radio did not rely on physical prevention of theft, but more the moral enlightenment that theft was not acceptable."
"When we forget what is was like to have security, privacy and value in all things... this is the beginning of the end'
"Those who can do, those who can't teach and those who can't teach think your IP should be free"
"To hope is to plan, hopelessness leaves the planning to others who don't have your best interests at heart."
"When the machines drive the cars, make the food, write the music.... all we have is our IP and our data that programs the machines, we need to value that input and not have it given away for free by the GAFAs"

Our Sponsors:


Standing Sun Wine

Standing Sun Wines focus on Rhone variety wines, handcrafted in small lots from some of Santa Ynez Valley's premiere vineyards. The fruit is sourced as vineyard specific varieties, each with its own characteristics and diversity. The resulting wines are pure, unmanipulated wines in the true sense of wine making... take a great vineyard, pick great fruit, and simply make great juice.

Kind Snacks

From the healthy snacks and foods we make, to our commitment to social entrepreneurship with impact, our focus is on making the world a little kinder, one act at a time (no arm-twisting here, promise). Our message of holistic kindness has been the foundation of KIND since day one, and continues each time we create a new snack or introduce a new social initiative. One simple, foundational belief underpins it all: There's more to business than just profit. It's why we started the KIND Movement, why we believe the easier we make it for our community to surprise others with unexpected acts of kindness, the kinder our world will become. Big act or small, we encourage it - from writing a letter to someone who inspired you to planting thousands of trees to simply taking the time to say "thank you."
