[liberationtech] Silicon Valley Must Be Redistributed

The continued existence of Silicon Valley in its current form is the
single greatest threat to the human race we face today.

As the FBI v Apple fiasco makes clear, any Silicon Valley business can
be commandeered, coerced to serve the surveillance apparatus. [0]

The solution: We must disrupt Silicon Valley, redistribute innovation
around the world.

That's why we founded the LatAm Startups Conference. [1]

Unlike many "entrepreneurship initiatives," our goal is not a
thinly-disguised counter-insurgency program designed to create nations
of shopkeepers.

Our goal is to end the brain drain to Silicon Valley, to encourage the
modern Janissaries on whom the empire depends to go home, to stay home,
to build globally-scalable businesses from their home countries.

Ensuring internet freedom is a business and political problem as much as
it is a technical problem. And when the American secret police are
hellbent on betraying every last principle of freedom that the country
was founded on, it's time for you to pick up your toys and go play
somewhere else.

The third annual LatAm Startups Conf takes place in Mexico City in
October. [2] To celebrate Conf 3.0, we're releasing 30 tickets for only
$100. We expect tickets to sell out quickly, so if you're interested,
grab one now. [3]

Hacking for freedom means not just technical solutions, but business
solutions. Startups are motivated by greed, but also by idealism. Show
them a better way to make money--and avoid coercion--and they will take

Hack the planet.
