#SpanishRevolution – Instaling Democracy 2.0

It has been truly incredible to witness the Democracia Real Ya! (Real Democracy Now!) movement explode all over Spain over the last week, and even more exciting to participate in these days where the whole idea of “Democracy” is being completely re-examined and re-constructed. In streets, squares and parks all over Spain people are asking themselves what sort of world do they want and how are they going to create it. In fact, the simple yet truly powerful gesture is being replicated right the way around this planet at present. Strange and amazing days to be alive, YA!

Let José Luis Sampedro explain where this Democracy 2.0 has come from and is going to:  Spanish Revolution (Spanish with English Subs)

Democracy 2.0:

Is inspired by thinking from Web 2.0 (the participative side of the internet)

The term Web 2.0 is associated with web applications that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design,[1] and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies.
