Via Bernardo Gutiérrez:
- Before everything started, there was a huge movement in networks, from Anonymous forums to some networks againts Ley Sinde (Internet law). I was created Red Sostenible and the wiki nolesvotes (don´vote for them)
- The non comercial network of the revolution is N-1.cc (made with copy left)
- La Tabacalera is an open code cultural-social center. Everything began there one year before 15M. It is an space ruled by the commons, in the center of Madrid. There is no boss no public money.
- In the Squares, during those weeks, they created a new model of society and everything was prepared and decided with wikis and discussions, such as Propongo
- 15M was the first Hybrid Revolution. They created many tools to make the link between the street and the net. See Twittómetro, a tool for voting with hashtags in the same discussions they had in the squares.
- There is a hashtag called Stopredadas, and in 20 minutes, thousands of people go to prevent evictions. See also STOP Deshaucios and
- From the main squares everything went to the neighbourhoods (Take the neighbourhoods)
- There are many experiences about changing things, works, time, functioning without money, P2P society, see at http://no-ma-des.blogspot.com/

- Democracia 4.0, demo4punto, about insuring real democratic voting
- 15m.cc is a collective book and documentary about 20 people who participated in the movement
"it’s unmistakable now that the Earth upon which they stand is trembling. Outraged at a world that perpetuates injustice and that steadily leads itself to ruin, the people are starting to make a stand. If you listen closely, you can hear their roar emanating from the streets down below. If you look hard, and you are willing to see, you will witness a powerful benevolent force rising up from below, spreading its arms like wings of fire and crying out in indignation at the out-of-touch business class above. They are ready to reclaim a long-lost childhood dream and take to the skies — breaking the laws of nature to write a new chapter in the history of mankind."
