Revolution? Reformation

I have come to the conclusion that we are in the middle of a Revolution. This is not a surprise or even a radical statement,  lots of people think that but I am thinking of a particular type of revolution. A Reformation.

The Reformation was thought to have started with Martin Luther's 95 Thesis. In a very simplistic way it was the removal of knowledge/power from the existing holders and freeing it to the people who had the skills to access it. Bibles printed so that it could be read by those who could read.

So if we are are freeing knowledge from the high priests of knowledge, much to their annoyance and fear, then what would our 95 thesis of today be?

1. All have the right to connectivity with equality?????

And I guess this Reformation, like the previous one, has those who 'can read' and those who can't. Divides, digital or otherwise, always exist but the reformers always seem to overcome in the end...

3. Learning is contextual. It always depends upon how, with what tools, where, when, why, and with whom.

4. Learning is lifelong.
