Jonas Luster riffs on jazzroots. I like this:

But grassroots, doesn’t quite cut it for me. What we really have at our hands are Jazzroots. Combining the power of technologies with the dynamics of Jazz. Often unscripted, often just jamming along, and sometimes not very refined, small flares of activism. “Small pieces, loosely joined”, to bastardize David Weinberger’s latest work of genius, achieve great things, not by cohesion or through a unified leadership, but through persistence and improvisation.

Like Jazz, jazzroots efforts are sometimes rather unpolished, yet appealing.

Good stuff.
