Web 2.008

The Cute Cat Theory of Digital Activism was introduced at ETech2008, this is  four years ago.

An excerpt, by Mr. Ethan Zuckermann:
Based on my Tripod experience, I’d offer the hypothesis that any sufficiently advanced read/write technology will get used for two purposes: pornography and activism
Porn is a weak test for the success of participatory media – it’s like tapping a mike and asking, “Is it on?” If you’re not getting porn in your system, it doesn’t work. 
Activism is a stronger test – if activists are using your tools, it’s a pretty good indication that your tools are useful and usable.
