Real Utopia Videos


Here are some videos recorded in March 2008 for a Left Forum panel organized for the release of Real Utopia: Participatory Society for the 21st Century (AK Press), a book I have edited which will be out mid May. What you see below is a small sample of the books content. Special thanks to Charngchi Way for the excellent job he did videoing and editing the panel. Enjoy!
