ACTA secrecy is in fact a cynical game being played by the analogue economy (great phrase) to defend itself against us - you and me - the beating heart of the new digital economy and the connected society. The attempt to build a meta-national treaty-based fait accomplis has to be secret because too many of us are now intelligent and informed enough to derail it if there was any transparency or honesty. What is "piracy" in this context? It is the attempt to steal the future of culture and democracy from every one of us. We have in our hands a true test of global democracy and we dare not fail.
And that's hardly a surprise becuase AGPL is purely about license-derived software freedom. We're on beyond licenses now, and we need to condition people to consider all the degrees of freedom and not just one.
In at number two is the OpenOffice.org community. Great work, everyone.
