A message sent to the World Social Forum Discuss list:
We have a project to build a really big pitchfork (as in, “the peasants have pitch forks and are storming the castle”). Is anyone on this list interested in helping?
Take a look at says-us.net . Says-us advocates building a rating + reviews + whistle blowing + organizing + action system, encompassing all domains of need. Using the Foucauldian notion that institutions are born through problematization, says-us is a vehicle for self-expression, and problematization. With that comes the abolition, modification, and creation of institutions. Says-us addresses the question of “whose problem?” and “whose solution?” by giving voice and power to everyone with web / mobile access.
Any big thinkers and even bigger doers out there?
