Send a post to the anarchy debate – Click here
This debate is a moderated debate forum, open for all kinds of anarchists, not only members/subscribers of the Anarchist International. Anarchism = socialism + autonomy = libertarian, see http://www.anarchy.no/a_e_p_m.html.
The debate is open to individualist anarchists, collectivist anarchists, communist anarchists and social-individualist anarchists and for different aspects such as anarchosyndicalists, anarchafeminists and eco/green anarchists. Platformists (collectivists) to the left and “anarcho”capitalists (individualists) to the right on the economical political map http://www.anarchy.no/a_e_p_m.html, are not really anarchists, and have no place in this debate. “Anarcho”-capitalism, is anarcho-(economical) plutarchy, an oxymoron, and thus not anarchist.
Platformism with majority rule and a central committee is too leftist, marxistoid to be anarchist. Feel free to use a nick-name, or your real name. The editor-group may shorten posts to the debate.

USA – Speakers at the Enterprise 2.0 conference say the next generation of employees will demand workplace access to blogs, wikis, and social networking sites.
Younger employees – like that new batch of university graduates hitting the market right now – are going to be pushing employers to use Web 2.0 technologies on the job. And if their companies don’t start adopting them, younger workers will most likely just start using them on the sly.
“The upcoming generation is going to have a major impact on business. She will expect to have access to her tools in the workplace,” said Marthin De Beer, a senior VP with Cisco Systems.
