We have been in a revolution for 30 years. People the world over are waking up to their conditions and the denial of their agency and humanity. At the same time, the infrastructure for the self-organising of societies has always been latent and is now moving into the public space more consciously. The rapid advancement of technology, including artificial intelligence, has the potential to transform our world for the good, if individuals and communities take an active part in shaping it. Our best chance is to wake up to the power of our relationality and response-ability, and build the architecture that supports our agency therein.
