  7. Project Cybersyn - 99% Invisible

    On September 11, 1973, a military junta violently took control of Chile, which was led at the time by President Salvador Allende. Allende had become president in a free and democratic election. After the military coup, General Augusto Pinochet took power and ruled Chile as a dictator until 1990.

    The military regime dissolved the congress, took control of the media and went about dismantling the socialist and democratic institutions that Allende’s government had built.

    In the midst of this takeover, the military discovered a strange room in a nondescript office building in downtown Santiago. The room was hexagonal in shape with seven white fiberglass chairs arranged in an inward facing circle.

    This “operations room” (or: opsroom) was the physical interface for a complex system called Cybersyn. It was an ambitious project in technology and design meant to help Chile’s socialist economy succeed.

  9. Riley’s Commie Book Club: ‘Designing Freedom’

    It’s that time again! Riley’s Commie Book Club is back a brief hiatus. This month, we’re discussing Stafford Beer’s lecture series "Designing Freedom." Beer, one of the principal architects of Cybersyn, the information network that served as the nerve centre for Allende’s Chile, spent his life thinking of ways that people could organise to solve common problems in ways that do not create pointless hierarchies between them. Check it out! I reference an episode of the podcast 99% Invisible here, and I promise I would link it. So! That episode: here.

  10. El Salvador | What a Bitcoin Dictatorship

    Is it possible that autocratic rulers could use Bitcoin’s transparent blockchain to crack down on their citizen? The tool of financial liberation could also be a tool of power consolidation.

    El Salvador is on the verge of a historic change. The country now led by a social media crafty 39-year-old millennial is rewriting its history. While until now, El Salvador has been most well-known for its endless struggles with gang wars, it may soon become a Central American hub for digital revolution of the blockchain technology. From September this year, every business in El Salvador will have to accept bitcoin as a payment method. But will this actually deliver Salvadorans on the Bitcoin’s promise of financial freedom? Or will El Salvador’s president use Bitcoin to prop up his regime?
