On Libervis.com we explore the good uses of technology, those that put technology in the service of individual liberty, personal empowerment, betterment of society as a whole, and building a better future. We provide key resources that can help you use technology to advance these purposes, and we discuss the implications that technological trends, meshing with social trends, have for these values.
Video games are taking the place side by side to blockbuster movies. They are the new form of mass media entertainment as the visual realism begins to match that of movies and even the real world. What gives them an edge however is the fact that they are interactive, that not only can you passively experience them as you watch, but participate and influence exactly what you see.
Unless you really want to believe in something you know is a lie you probably wont be inclined to believe people who express inconsistent ideas.
Free Software or Open Source Software have been typically attacked by people who do appear to believe quite strongly in property ownership. If you create something, they would argue, then you are entitled to control it. How else are you gonna get compensated for it?
Just as we may talk about the dangers of future technologies when they are put to some negative uses we can talk about the internet as a present and still largely evolving technology and dangers its negative uses pose to other people.
A lot of the past discussions on this site involved the question of idea ownership, mostly as part of the overall discourse on Free Software. I've usually been the one to state that ideas cannot be owned or at the very least fall under some sort of collective ownership.
Even when Libervis.com is rather quiet, our chatroom is pretty lively and active often with interesting discussions about freedom and related issues. All of us who participate are technology enthusiasts, mostly users of GNU/Linux operating system, but not discriminatory towards anyone else.
I would like to invite anyone who may be stumbling on this site to join us. Who knows, it may be one of the better things you've done because once you get to know us you might actually want to stick around.
