Revolution is not an AOL Keyword*

You will not be able to stay home, dear Netizen.
You will not be able to plug in, log on and opt out.
You will not be able to lose yourself in Final Fantasy,
Or hold your Kazaa download queues,
Because revolution is not an AOL Keyword.

Revolution is not an AOL Keyword.
Revolution will not be brought to you on Hi-Def TV
Encrypted with a warning from the FBI.
Revolution will not have a jpeg slideshow of Dubya
Calling the cattle and leading the incursion by
Secretary Rumsfeld, General Ashcroft and Dick Cheney
Riding nuclear warheads on their way to Iraq,
Or North Korea, or Iran.

Revolution is not an AOL Keyword.
Revolution will not be powered by Microsoft on
The Next-Generation Secure Computing Base
And will not star Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee
Or Larry Lessig and Martha Stewart.

Revolution will not promise penile enlargement.
Revolution will not get rid of spam.
Revolution will not earn you up to $5000 a month
Working from home
, because revolution is not
An AOL Keyword, Brother.

There will be no screen grabs of you and
Jeeves the Butler one-click shopping at My Yahoo,
Or outbidding a shady grandma on eBay for
That refurbished iPod 20-gig.
MSNBC.com will not predict election results in Florida
Or fact-check the Drudge Report.
Revolution is not an AOL Keyword.

There will be no webcast of Wil Wheaton boxing
Barney the Dinosaur on the dancefloor at DNA.
There will be no mob- or wiki- blog of Richard Stallman
Strolling through Redmond in a medieval robe and halo
As St. iGNUcious of the Church of Emacs
That he has been saving
For just the proper occasion.

Survivor, The Osbournes, and Joe Millionaire
Will no longer be so damned relevant, and
People will not care if Carrie hooks up again with
Mr. Big on Sex and the City because Information
Wants To Be Free
even while Knowledge Is Power.
Revolution is not an AOL Keyword.

There will be no final pictures from inside the
World Trade Center in the instant replay.
There will be no final pictures from inside the
World Trade Center in the instant replay.

There will be no RealVideo of 2600-reading,
Linux-booting white hat hacktivists
And Mickey Mouse in the public domain.
The theme song will not be written by Jack Valenti or
Hilary Rosen, nor sung by Metallica, Dr. Dre,
Christina Aguilera, Matchbox 20, or Blink-182.
Revolution is not an AOL Keyword.

Revolution will not be right back after
Pop-up ads about eCommerce, eTailers, or eContent.
You will not have to worry about a
Cookie in your browser, a bug in your email, or a
Worm in your recycling bin.
Revolution will not run faster with Intel inside.
Revolution, dude, is not getting a Dell.
Revolution will increase your Google rank.

Revolution is not an AOL Keyword, is not an AOL Keyword,
Is not an AOL Keyword, is not an AOL Keyword.
Revolution will be no stream or download, dear Netizen;
Revolution must still be live.

*See generally Gil Scott-Heron, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

I'm 51 years old.

I remember the first time I heard The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (on WBRU FM 95.5 the Brown University radio station in Providence RI, and at the timem the only station in RI that was worth listening to) and was just stunned by the power of his voice and the power of his poetry and imagry.

"Revolution is not an AOL Keyword" is a damn good homage to the original and a damn fine piece of poetry in it's own right.

Thanks for words!

Revolution is not an AOL Keyword* relives and beautifully recalls to life the original song. I just can't imagine the pain that went into coding those abhorrent hyperlinks.

I gotta print this out. Very cool. Brings back lots of memories. Thanks for the work you did on it.

But bakari: you can't print it out - you'll lose the hyperlinks!

I am a recovering Linux/Windoze dual-booter...
but I haven't been able to kick my information addiction.
This is a good time to be a member of the human race...
information abounds.
I pledge to work to keep it that way.

I found the material in this site very refreshing. I wondered if there people like me who are so engulfed in the media culture that it brings them the synaptic waves of poetic metaphor simmilar to prose I myself render following a long day within this cement test tube we call the urban experiance. (I just wanted to fit in the body of why I wrote.) I have a strong addiction to responding our social condition. I sometimes wish I had remained with the rabble(IGNORANT) living the Canadian dream. Waking up is really waking for sleep comes only after we contimplate the days events in timeless silence. Keep writing your stuff you are the media culture as it should be.

Posted by: Calculator Blaine on April 20, 2003 09:16 PM

Creative writing, but I still believe the revolution Gil Scott-Heron had in mind in 1974 was a bit more serious and important than blogs.

Posted by: Rob on April 20, 2003 09:38 PM

This is a hack that luckily cannot diminish the original piece: typical of our sampler-friendly culture. When the revolution comes it will not be webcast, instant messaged or writ on the pages of obscure websites. Maybe Mad magazine is still looking for writers

Posted by: NoOne on April 20, 2003 10:20 PM

The one line that disappoints me is the one that says the Revolution WILL increase your Google rank. I don't think any real kind of revolution involves Google. I think it would be more powerful with the original "The revolution will put you in the driver's seat." line left intact. But who cares what I think.

Bah.

Revolution has already been televised. Revolution has been *merchandised*. Revolution is a commodity, a packaged lifestyle, available at your local mall. $19.95 gets you the black mask, the spray can, the "Crush the Fascists" protest sign, and access to your blog where you can write about the police brutality you suffered when you chained yourself to a fire hydrant.

Capitalism has learned how to sell anti-capitalism.

Posted by: Lizard on April 20, 2003 11:31 PM

I'll be reading this at open mic night at The LoveUgly Cabaret in Rochester, MN tonight. The owner there has several times read the original work over funk groove from the house band (of which I am a member). I definitely see this as an essential update - not a "security patch" or "critical system update" but, in the style of Unreal Tournament, a free large bonus pack that greatly enhances the original work. And it's an especially appropriate venue, seeing as it's a sort of counterculture (if there is still such a thing) and arts hangout. If this were read to the general public or even at the college here, it would be treated with a lot of blank stares and whispers of "damn geeks...", probably much the same as I imagine the original was received, replacing geeks with artists or whatever your favorite group.

Ok it's late and I'm making no sense whatsoever...just wish me luck tomorrow night that it's well received!

Lizard what you wrote kicked ass, very good. I think it speaks of the bigger truth. Mike maybe you should read that at open mic night.

Posted by: Philip Clifford on April 21, 2003 07:39 AM

all i can say is that Linux will indeed be at this forefront of revolution. revolution of the evolution of software.

Posted by: Maniac on April 21, 2003 07:40 AM

It is a good piece of writing.

Yet, when I read it I see its broader audience in my mind's eye: an endless column of what I like to think of as my fellow humans, marching in lockstep into the fog, their eyes reflecting their CRTs as twenty years ago they marched behind reflections of their television screens.

Sometimes good writing saddens as it inspires.

The Revolution will be sold to dissafected upper-middle class white kids feeling guilty for their affluence at $32,000 a year.

Guys there's a reason that Dubya won the last election, and more frighteningly WILL probably win the next one, it's called the radical left and you guys have been screwing it up for all of us good moderates for some time now.

There is no revolution, there never was one, and by calling for one you only make it easier for the damn republicans to marginalize the only hope we have, which is unfortunately the Democrats (we all know that the Greens aren't ever going to be a viable opposition because the US system doesn't support minority Gov's or Coalitions, it's a winner-take all system).

So bitch and moan about the new freedom of Iraqi children, and just remember that you put that SOB in the white house...

But other that that I liked the links, good stuff.

the net may be the AK of the revolution, but it will not be the manifesto or Odessa. just remember comrades, the revolution will happen in the three dimensional setting. let's make sure we spend the bulk of our time living out there kicking against the machine. none the less, the AK has been an incredibly important tool. so lets make sure we keep our weapons well oiled.

let's remember Gil Scott-Heron and pray he rises above.

Hmmm, a bigger truth ... whatever. This was obviously co-opted by someone white. The real "terrorist threat" that remains in America is de facto racism and white privilege. Obviously, if "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" must be white-washed to be modernized ...

Posted by: Donald on April 24, 2003 04:39 AM

I would like to thank the original creator of the abovementioned poem for remembering the roots of these words - "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."

I would also like to thank all of you who remember who Gil Scott-Heron is and his impact on our society.

The ultimate goal of my web site is to ensure that he will always be remembered.

To Chris Tucker. I am originally from RI and 50 yrs old. I started listening to WBRU in 69. Those were the days of 30 minutes of fantastic music with one commercial break in between, usually advertising a head shop or clothing store. For some reason "The Incredible Organ" comes to mind..

Posted by: Bill on April 25, 2003 11:07 AM

Remembering what Gil Scott had to say, your work was a cute adaptation, but you forget that when you have a REAL revolution, things get messy ... and then you have to clean up after.

Posted by: mechaman on April 25, 2003 05:38 PM

When? Where? Why?
Revolution...
Please.
Not while we still eat Twinkies, drink Coke, or smoke "anything"... Sitting on the collective a$$
is the only Revolution (the world keeps on spinning) that is going to happen... period.

Other than that... cool, man, cool...

Posted by: Eddy on April 25, 2003 06:00 PM

we had the only revolution we need, the fruits are the Constitution of the United States of America, and if we could find most of our public elected officials who were dedicated in upholding their duty to govern within the boundries of that document, we would find a more satisfied populace and peaceful planet. Our problem is our teachers have no idea what it is, nor do the elected officials seem to care. The minority my friends are the tax payers, and every year the Democrats and to some extent Republicans buy votes by robbing from wage earners, and giving it to the ever growing number of people who pay nothing!
Most Americans are too stupid to see what is going on, and how their rights are being taken from them, one by one. Clinton said maybe we are too free, well let me tell you something, if the majority of the Democratic Socialist Party have anything to do with it, you will march when told, and obey! No rights left, cause these idots believe your rights are given to you by the government...Idiots! Rights transcend the government. and what about nearly every elected official announcing their idiocy to the world when they say this country is a democracy. Most people haven't thought to much about democracy, the purest form of democracy is a lynch mob! There is the ideal, that's what these idiots are saying, the word republic seems to never come to their lips, that's because a government by law is offensive to these idiots. Contempt for the supreme law of the land, that is where many of our elected officials heads is at, as well as many government officials. No we don't need a revolution, we just need to get a little educated in how our "founding fathers" of the United States of America saw this country working, then get this country back on track.

Give not the fools a leash, for they will break it. Give them not a harsh hand, for they will bite it. Use not a gun and a knife, for others will tear you down.

Rather, be "on their side." Give them the right to agree with you, and the entertainment to show them that you are right, or at least fun. Give them "what they want," only after riling them up and telling them what that is.

Give them a free, unregulated medium, then tell them how "best" it should be used, what "should" be on it, and how you are giving them what they want and need, so long as they grease your pockets and agree with your crusade.

No self respecting netizen worth his bandwidth gives 'AOHell' the time of day. P{
There is no revolution here on the internet..just an UNSTOPPABLE, below the 'radar' renaissance. Civilisation advances by the dissemination of information. The internet is the only tool, ever, to enable instantaneous dissemination of information globally..Freedom of Information it is more than just an act...The internet,not occupying physical space is NOT subject to physical force..Here big BRAINS win over big GUNS.
All Volunteers!

In Praise of Good Pirates and Hackers
by Wendy Jan,2000.

The Millennium is here, Pirates all take your bow
At the dawn of this great information age now.
Information will never be some ?holy cow?
So thank you, good hackers, for keeping it free
And for sharing so much this knowledge with me.
Without you, we could drown in confusion you see
I don?t buy propaganda, but sometimes the truth
Is evasive elusive and very uncouth:
Sometimes it?s ugly and even quite hideous
But preferred to deceit and deception perfidious
So Pirates and Hackers in the prime of your life
Keep up the good work, in yourselves have belief
And do not succumb to despondence or grief

Yes lies are far worse, for they are the curse
That keep us enslaved, we could go to our grave
Riding high on the wave and have ignorance engraved
In our minds but you saved us, the pure truth you gave us.
You lay truth out to dry, to my utter delight,
In the honest revealing rays of the sunlight
To enable the less skilled, to see just what?s right
And what?s wrong, it?s not you, I know you are good
It?s the ?powers that be? who don?t want understood
The extent of corruption their lives do infect
And the death dealing lies to each other inject
They?re so scared of the truth getting out, they ingest
Their deception, brain damaged, at their own behest

Let them claw at each other, to their self-destruction
And you keep on hacking, for our good instruction.
The truth purifies all it touches, it rates,
It belongs beside honor we have integration
Of truth in our lives (and it is not at stake).
So thank you good men you are my inspiration.
You keep at bay, fear, terror and desperation.
Your presence here floods my mind with elation.

So my praise for you, excellent hackers is great,
And all you Good Pirates guarding freedoms gate.
Brilliant and gifted men, well may I laud,
Your ?mind boggling? labors I truly applaud.
I?m aware of your many accomplishments too,
So this poem I am dedicating to you.
You have earned it, I?ll write it, and tell it, and show it,
And try to keep up with you too, so you?ll know it
You transcend! I?ll compose and expose and tell all,
To all who will listen, my voice will be heard.
I?ll try to keep up, stay ahead of the herd

I am proud of each of you; I do hear the call
Of this new generation and its expectation,
And I love you too, for each age brings good men
Who will fight for the right of the truth, yes and then
Will expose the disgusting debacle so sickening
Of ?little tin gods? and their laws so prohibiting
The rights of the free who would justly expose
All the lies, greed and cruelty in authorities? clothes
We need information, they DENY us ACCESS
Knowledge is power; but I will not digress.
We need you good hackers, now more than ever.
You will win in the end because you?re so clever.
Good is stronger than evil it has the distinction
Of fighting for life, over evils extinction.

P.S.
At the end of this poem I praise Kevin Mitnick
The Bastards have certainly made his life no picnic
I?ve Marked off that Markov I?ll not forget his name
He must live with his lies to his eternal? shame?
You are not alone Kevin; we are with you in spirit
So shalom, mazel tov, l?chaim & stay with it!

Posted by: Alex Dolbayov on October 12, 2003 05:23 AM

Just let it kind of ruminate and congeal... WAY too much information for one to even assimilate w/ any one view. Is there every an intellectual "wrong" or "right" ? If so, someone please clue me in to the absolute truths. I'm still trying to prioritize the issues as they fly at us. The simple fact that we can post our ideas and do our "griping" and fight for our causes is really the only thing that embodies the freedom of our society anymore. I suppose that's enough to appease the general public. General Public? I am not writing this to make a supreme statement that will leave people in awe or disbelief of shocked adulation. I am simply thinking out loud.
I am just happy to see that people are THINKING about stuff, and responding to it, instead of just passing it by; at least that's a good sign.
I will say one thing... Lizard's excerpt above did actually give me this really odd goosebump/mind meld reaction. Read it, it's a bit cynical, I suppose, but it's certainly worth the time and thought.

"long days and happy nights" to all!

This is really great but to the fellow who thought Internet was free and information was available to everyone, I have two points:

A- Global Internet Access:
The Global Internet Trends survey also found that the number of people worldwide with access to the Internet via a home PC increased from 553 million in Q2 2002 to 563 million in Q3 2002 (see Table 3). The US continues to have the largest Internet population, with 30 percent of the global audience attributed to that one market. Europe accounts for 23 percent of the world's Internet population, followed by Asia and the Pacific with 13 percent, Latin America with two percent and markets not measured by Nielsen//NetRatings with the remaining 32 percent.

B-try living in a country like Iran and see how well the Ayatollahs are controlling the information through the Internet by putting blocks on websites.

The nice part is the blog spam.

"Revolution will increase your Google rank." indeed.
