It's time now to react, we can't partecipate at the UN WSIS and IGF approving the Tunis Agenda with the access, openess, security, multiculturality  as rights while in the same time the "real" world wearing its borders, its order, is defining us, the cognitive collective enterprise, the innovative social block as a virtual world. Internet isn't virtual it is viral one, not a device but an extraordinary system. We need an Internet Bill of Rights, a constitution for the net, multilevel, multistakeholder, with a partecipated process. We have to act just now on the contrary will be produced an artificial scarcity by law, the control of our point of view and our identity instead of a global pubblic opinion with an informated partecipation.
We have to act locally and globally in this cognitive ecosystem.

adesso! now!
