This instance is a place to plan and talk about direct action in a practical ways, yes we can wax philosophical at times which is fine but in the end it comes back to real people doing real things on real ground to affect real power relationships. To work towards a more "horazontal" world for everyone and everything.

I now think that it is important for us to resist the politics of Zuckerberg since he has declared that a) he will allow advertisements that include demonstrable lies--which plays right in to the hands of the current mendacious US President-- and b) he has said he would be willing to campaign against Warren--who has a good chance of winning the election but understands the power of Facebook.

The important point here is that on climate, on the rule of law, on rules based foreign policy, on the promotion of civil society, on equality of all citizens, on the right of people to seek refuge, on the protection of the environment, and everything else, the current President is a threat to his own people, and do all of us around the world. If Facebook looks like enabling the continuance of that approach to life, then we should oppose it. So I want Mastodon to work.

Just found out about an F-Droid app that detects when the spotify notification bar changes to "Advertisement" and then mutes it, and optionally plays audio from your device's library instead until it finishes

I love how simple and clever this idea is. It's essentially exploiting the analog hole to block ads, and it can't be restricted any more than they can stop you from manually hitting mute whenever an ad comes up

The modern web followed BBS culture.

Then IRC.

Then WWW..

Then it all went siloed.

We decentralized. Power to the people.

Now we make the future.

Now we make the promise real.

Hero worship on both sides. Looking for a link explaining the good and the bad of hero worship as a strategy for social change

How to solve real world problems:

Do direct action and keep doing it, get video and photos, use the media. Weather the negative reaction, negotiate, win. Problem solved, move on to the next problem.
