Something rare is happening, and it might not last long.
Today, right now, anyone with a $300 laptop can use the very same tools as the people at the top of just about any industry.
If you want to write, you have the same writing tools available to you as the most successful writers in the world.
If you want to join a social network, well, the software that connects the titans of your industry is the very same software you can use.
If you want to learn, do research, make a ruckus… your local library has access to the same tools as you’ll find in a skyscraper in a big company.
Of course, we haven’t democratized access to closed off circles, we haven’t changed the inherent and unstated biases of those in traditional seats in power.
But we’ve definitely given you the tools.
If you can, pick yourself.
