I hadn’t heard the term “dissent entrepreneur” before I read this blog post by Aaron Peters, but I love it. Entrepreneurship is an established set of behaviors in the business and technology worlds. It would be great to see it applied to politics. Twitter politics is as much about political activism as campaigning by party politicians.
Twitter provides a great tool to both get the message out quickly through mobile devices for flash demonstrations, and to gradually aggregate like minded activists for long-term planning and sharing of effective messages. It is the best way now available for political memes to take root and spread around the world in minutes. I’m looking forward to more of this on both the left and right.
