Now that the UK has left the EU (incredible to write those words, isn’t it?), I fear we’re moving into a tribal political world. In this world nations will shut their borders to immigrants and climate agreements that harm local industries will fall. It seems to me that the last, best chance to counter this is the open society promoted by the web. We may be broken up by nations, but we are connected by Facebook. We might have different currencies, but we can all publish on Medium. We might have different laws, but we can talk via Skype, Whatsapp, and Telegram.
Can I recommend a healthy dose of tech-optimism right now? We need it.
