Governance. Democracy. Delete.

The publication «Governance. Democracy. Delete.» is a 600-page pre-Snowden attempt to capture, structure and contextualize the political, economical and social dimensions of the debate on the future of the internet using Twitter one-liners and their linked material. The book, as part of the open source movement, is set exclusively with open source fonts and intended to appear as a monthly print-on-demand edition.

«The jury was impressed by this massive-looking book. The charming but bold and straightforward typography adds up nicely to the crucial topic. The analysis of a collection upgrades the weight of tweet to a threatening-looking history book. The power of design!» —Hansje van Halem
