Russell Brand, who – next to being a well-known English comedian – attracted world-wide attention by his explanation why he was not voting during an interview by Newsnight host Jeremy Paxman in 2013, has a new book out: Revolution.   Next to it being a fun read, I think we can all draw inspiration from this book. Also worth watching: an interview with Brand by Lawrence O'Donnell on The Last Word on the topic of this book.

I've been involved in IOPS since early 2011 and participated in testing our website before it went online. One of the first concerns I voiced, and perhaps the most important one in my view, was that our website is based on a highly specialized framework. This turned out to be a successful business model for the web developers who made our website but had significant downsides for us. For every bug we found we had to go back to the initial web developers so they could fix it. For every improvement…

IOPS London members at the September 2014 meeting (which I didn't attend) asked the question "What is IOPS London and what do YOU want it to be?". It was decided that we'd discuss this question at today's meeting.   So, I started scribbling down my thoughts to organise my ideas for discussion at today's meeting. I started linking it to the IOPS Mission and Vision statements. And, I thought I'd share my scribbles in case they're helpful/useful to others:   A pre-figurative space (IOPS Mission…

This proposal was put forth by Tasner Curran and Howard Goldson in one of the last talks. They were nice enough to let me take the lead on putting it up, my apologies for the delay. Proposal to provide space on IOPS for allies, parallel movements and organizations, that members would like to nominate as candidates. A platform to talk about their work, their efforts, projects, ideas as they might apply to what we are after, in line with what IOPS stands for. We would like to provide a space within…

I’ve written a long piece on how comic books (and all arts) would thrive in an anarchist system, out on Forbidden Planet blog (a comic book store) and featuring our Parecomic book with Michael Albert and Noam Chomsky. Michael also contributed to this article:   http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2014/comics-sean-michael-wilson-anarchic-approach/

      Since the launch of the provisional IOPS, the process of becoming a fully fledged organisation has included a certain amount of dithering.  While waiting for sufficient numbers, something closer to ideal representation, and strong chapters on the ground, it appears that many of our members have lost interest, or just found other things to spend their time on.    In the most recent poll, those who did respond seem to show a commitment to having a convention and…
