  • P2P & Hacktivism 1  New Media is . . . always me and you, and no longer them. There is no longer a “they”, as in, “They say it’s gonna rain today.” It rains, and we know it rains because we can show it to one another. . . when the weatherman says it will rain, we can tell him he’s wrong. We can demand a better weatherman.
