UPRISER // the evolution of revolution
“The reasonable person adapts themselves to the world; the upriser
persists in trying to adapt the world to themself. Therefore, all
progress depends on the upriser.” ~ adapted from George Bernard Shaw
What is UPRISER?
UPRISER is being designed as the ultimate platform for rapid
grassroots organizing, seeding revolutionary ideas, innovation,
launching startups, whistle-blowing, and starting and coordinating
positive initiatives democratically.
The New Roundtable for Revolutionaries
From innovators to Anonymous hacktivists, whistleblowers and rabble
rousers to social entrepreneurs, iconoclasts and change-agents to John
F. Kennedy’s speech writer – all share a common bond – the insatiable
desire to change the world for the better – and now we are coming
together to collaborate through a new site designed to coordinate
massive positive change: UPRISER.com
UPRISER aims to unite the eclectic passions of rebels, visionaries,
free-spirits and pioneers worldwide by offering them a platform to
rapidly share, crowd-filter and amplify revolutionary ideas; giving the
best ideas and most pertinent messages the support and attention they
deserve. Top posts unlock tools pioneered by Anonymous to stage and
coordinate massive distributed operations.
Viral amplification of ideas depends heavily on people’s vanity and
willingness to be seen sharing something (often resulting in a glut of
shallow memes that drown out more important ideas and messages).
UPRISER, on the other hand, employs anonymous democratic voting and
amplification so important ideas and messages get the attention they
deserve. You don’t need to have a big following to be heard, you just
need the right idea at the right time.
What happens when you bring millions of change-agents and disruptive innovators together? We’re about to find out.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP...
Why do we need money?
UPRISER.com has the potential to be one of the most important online
organizing tools for innovation because it helps rapidly select and
coordinate positive action in a horizontal democratic way, while
mainstreaming powerful team coordination tools pioneered and perfected
by Anonymous. (Donate to the project here: http://www.indiegogo.com/upriser)
But this is just the beginning...
The UPRISER community will collectively design direct improvements to
the site going forward, but we need your financial support to sustain
the costs of development and hosting of UPRISER.com.
By providing these funds, at this critical time, you are helping this

Expenses include database development, app server development,
Android development, Apple IOS development, information layout, graphic
and web design, at least one full-time administrator, scalable clustered
hosting on Amazon Web Services just to name the essentials.
I have already put well over 50,000 dollars (which is basically all
of my money) into this project, footing the bill for developer costs,
rent, server costs, and retaining UPRISER.com in the face of a
significant buyout offer. I am running out of cash, and I really need
