Hi odc-discuss at lists.okfn.org,
This is one-off email to share with you the release of my book, The Open Revolution: rewriting the rules of the information age.     
       [ Get the book on OpenRevolution.net » ]( http://3lgi9.r.ah.d.sendibm4.com/mk/cl/jN9AplcDK8e8S7fEiy3EETp5s-8N9Up5TeIy5kZxAsvQ585zHgwt6wGmYBMwoKxcH31RKiBETTuCa1xo7Ur1V2T-dJXmSF_uO-XsD4VROcOVhNRkiGs )       

This book is about something bigger than tech itself. It’s about information, ownership and control in a digital age. It talks directly to a number of lives issues, ranging from access to medicines, to the future of work and privacy, digital monopolies and power in a connected world.     

[  ]( http://3lgi9.r.ah.d.sendibm4.com/mk/cl/A658HrIoOsDZqi0PzXgiWTNOXWIvKC9UJHZMT8pcAapgFm6nNIarzWPV03S3sDI9PfBfizmn3Xt0MJWX_x9eKF4CFVxTLkSKRxDoch_WTXettFlGq_Y )

Will the digital revolution give us digital dictatorships or digital democracies? Forget everything you think you know about the digital age. It’s not about privacy, surveillance, AI or blockchain—it’s about ownership. Because in a digital age, who owns information controls the future.

Today’s “Closed” digital economy is the source of problems ranging from the power of a handful of tech monopolies to control how we think and vote, to unaffordable medicines, to growing inequality. The solution is not technological but political: a choice between making information Open, shared by all, or making it Closed, exclusively owned and controlled.
By choosing Open we can make a more equitable, innovative and profitable future for all.
