I'm not yet making a personal stance on the RMS state of affairs.
A question though;
Where are all the equivalent open letters for the calls for resignation and removal of heads of corporations and governments that are provably responsible for/ implicated in global scale suffering, exploitation and degredation (human and non-human both)?
All these links are for the same video. Distribute the load
Nice talk on 'Privacy and Decentralisation with Multicast'
All links to same video:
"Delete WhatsApp" :)
"Nature has no voice" is a lie, told by those with good intentions to bring about positive change (for all life).
The truth is Nature has all voices.
We must simply stop to listen.

Too much doing, getting things done, having, wanting, demanding, craving.

Can anyone tell me if there are similar projects for other indigenous communities around the world?
Special brand new christmas album, for those of you into such things

Testing "hyperlocal" #indymedia instance at indymediadev.openworlds.info
If you are interested, we're getting organised at https://unite.openworlds.info/indymedia/
(a slightly re-purposed gitea instance.)
Create an account, post issues, ask questions.
It's very much a work in progress at the moment.
We are working hard to use existing tools, to try and avoid (at least initially) creating anything "new".
Organise, Write, Photograph, Record, Publish
And keep it decentralised, federated, open.
Bring journalism back to the grassroots, develop trust again in where we get our information from.
Nothing new - we're trying to build on ActivityPub and RSS.
How might we improve the social dynamics online through this process, without getting caught up in the technology?
#DefundThePolice is imho not the right approach - will lead to just more anger and stupidity.
#RemoveThePolice seems better to me, but with an important addition.
#BringBackPeaceKeepers - particularly those who are part of the community.
If not peacekeeper, what about guardian?
Those people charged to protect, _need_ to be reminded of their responsibilities and held to them.
youtube-dl was re-instated.
Well, this resolution totally passed me by.
Nice to see.
Though I doubt it would have happened without the uproar from dev community, regardless of the flowery speech from github (*cough* microsoft)
