Aren't we really in the process of forming that political party even as we type
? You spend any amount of time on /.
and you'll hear enough rants and raves about the beauty and power of open source
. Groups like FSF
and the Open Source Initiative
are inherently political, even if not overtly and explicitly so.
Here's one of the guiding principles of the Internet Society:
"No discrimination in use of the Internet on the basis of race, color, gender, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status."
That's the first plank of my geek-party platform! =P
