Universal Digital Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General, Information Commons, Virtual Communities

Just turned in answers for an email interview with Christian Hall of .Net (UK). Most were about the Blooker, but there were also a few about blogging in general. One question got me thinking (see below). What if every bit of Free Software carried the Universal Declaration of Human Rights within it? There are versions in over 300 languages so it could be truly viral in a good sense, discovered and read worldwide.

+4: How can blogger’s rights be improved?

i wish there were a way for technology to somehow embed the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights in every piece of software produced. even more
so i wish that every country might live by the principles therein.

    It is already here…

    The Costa Rican Congress in 2005 proposed the Virtual Personality human right, which is very close with what you describe.

    More details googling on “virtual personality,costa rica” or here:
