  • From KillCap To WikiSwarms - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    built a decentralized grassroots network capable of pulling off surprising nationwide missions that were fun game like and had a political impact In 2003 for example MoveOn members held voter registration house parties and collectively made 300 000 calls in a single afternoon volunteers visited the offices of every US senator to voice opposition to the impending war then in a stunning kickoff they organized public peace vigils on every continent and in thousands of small towns with only six days notice MoveOn s website at the time conveyed optimistic exhilaration Members used an ActionForum to sway the direction of the larger organization by posting suggestions and voting up or down on the ideas of others Those ideas that achieved a critical mass were then acted on by the group Powered by digital flows offline campaigns were going viral and not just at MoveOn from our small office in Vancouver Adbusters watched in awe as practically overnight Buy Nothing Day became a global sensation All of us were getting a taste of what might happen if a vibrant activist community were to emerge from a playful cyberspace today digital activism has reached adolescence and its adult years look to be more game like than ever At Adbusters we ve got KillCap brewing an anticonsumerism game built on the simple premise of escalating missions that target the visible signs of consumerism 10 blackpogs or in game experience points for walking away from Starbucks 15 for defacing the Golden Arches and 25 for subverting American Apparel s patriarchal advertising Here the proverbial ladder of engagement that online campaigners reverently talk about becomes a literal leader board where the highest rank goes to the most active jammers The beauty of KillCap is that knowing such an urban game is being played alters one s perception of the city and what constitutes a political act A jammed billboard an anticorporate prank and a capitalist hit with a pie rather than being seen as isolated events all become signs that jammers are earning blackpogs in KillCap an exciting game you ll also want to play KillCap works by appropriating the gamespace of consumerism for radical play where jammed corporations become opportunities for leveling up But it is just the beginning of a whole new kind of activist game A clue as to what comes next can be found in the emerging field of indie storytelling and roleplaying games Here the emphasis is placed on the construction of an alternative reality a counter narrative that reimagines life Picture a roleplaying game that takes place in real life where players become actors in an unfolding story whose final scene is global revolution Out there right now I anticipate that an eccentric game designer is working to craft precisely this kind of narrative activist game that weaves a story bold enough to disassociate players sufficiently from the mores of consumerism Once in character perhaps players will find the courage to live without dead time to assume a heroic

  • Post Idea World - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    a more inopportune moment Seven billion of us are struggling through the most severe ecological financial political and spiritual crisis in our history This time the catastrophe we face doesn t affect a single nation or region or continent it is all the more terrifying because it is global and simultaneous Odds are that if we can t pull ourselves out of this decline then we just might descend into a horrifying thousand year long dark age an age of scorched earth authoritarian capitalism brutalism and mayhem which will make the genocides and holocausts of the previous century feel like foreplay We ve not only run out of ideas we re running out of time Now more than ever we need the creative breakthroughs and outlier brainstorms that can shift the terrain of thought revealing exits opening possibilities potentially saving us all We need mavericks of indie media who can kill the commercial virus that infects our information flows We need a brilliant new crop of economics students who can stand up to their professors topple the neoclassical paradigm and replace it with a new true cost model We need potent new ways of dismantling corporate rule and killing corporate personhood And then there is the biggest challenge of them all how to spark a social revolution an insurrection of everyday life that sweeps across the globe just in time to avert the final catastrophe It may be that our abandonment of the natural world and wholesale migration into cyberspace has cut our roots and scrambled our neurons beyond repair We may be in the midst of an irreversible mental breakdown of the human race that parallels the irreversible collapse of our planet s ecosystems This eco psycho spiral may do us in Maybe it is already too late But
