Many trends point to a brighter future. Illness, violence and poverty are declining worldwide, while literacy and access to the Web are expanding. But the world is also becoming more unequal. The rising tide of racism, nationalism and authoritarianism threatens to reverse the democratic trend. Climate change threatens to destroy ecosystems and crops, and force mass migrations. Societies are rapidly aging, and jobs are threatened by automation. We now understand that the Web has both expanded and undermined democracy, and artificial intelligence is giving corporations, governments and criminals enormous new powers. We need a sexy, high-tech vision of a radically democratic future, but religious and political movements mostly want to return to the 20th or 13th centuries. In the coming decades we can begin fighting for a future with global security, radically longer lives and universal basic income for all, or more inequality in health, wealth and power. We need a technoprogressive program to advance the Enlightenment.

Paco Ragageles - Fondatore di Campus Party
I was born in Barcelona in 1967. As a self-taught person I dadicated my early years of my career to music, firstly working as DJ for “Top 40 Radio” and, later, cordinating a group of radio stations all over Spain.
In 1997, along with a group of friends, I founded “Campus Party” in Málaga, which has grown to become the largest and most influential event in Spain and Latin America. After Campus Party’s second year, I left radio to focus on other projects.
I am currently fully dedicated to the international expansion of Campus Party and to developing the widest geek community in the planet. With the mission of creating #somethingbetter –a social movement focused on raising conscience among geeks to use their skills and talents responsibly and for the benefit of humanity.
I live passionate about astronomy and science in general. And now I’m married with three children and living in Madrid.
