Ok well the opening sequence for the show is done. I’d like to thank Ben Stewart and Hierosonic for their use of the song ‘Paper Nation’.

“What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end.” ~ Nietzsche

‘The Bridge’ is a social commentary and Open Source advocacy podcast dealing with the coming technological singularity and how it will affect society in the coming years. I believe that the unfolding of democratizing technology will start an Open Source revolution where new techniques and skills in networked organization coupled with exponential technological growth will render our current plutocracy as impotent and irrelevant. What I want to achieve with this podcast is to actually bridge the political gap between the left and the right with a new, and proven, form of organizing that takes values from across the political spectrum. I hope to have guests on from all walks of life and many different opinions, from Libertarians to Occupy and everyone in between.  Maybe we can all sit down and figure this shit out!

with love
