We don't have any media distribution because we don't have our own culture. Its a simple truth

@witchescauldron or maybe we are just too lazy & prefer some third party to #admin central servers & sell us shiny shit we don't need or want?

@adinfinitum the majority are like that as are most political types. The duse not help to make things easy DIY both sad and bad outcome. We are trying with the

OK. So let's change it. #BlueGreenSandbox is looking to promote open practical solutions. I have been documenting my progress & am seeking access to a trusted #peertube host... Like #visionontv!! While I am being assisted by @disroot & @xj9 neither are focussed on #news or #environment

@adinfinitum @witchescauldron @disroot

i've talked about running news with some folks in the past. i can run the infrastructure, but i don't have bandwidth for actually creating any of the content or doing any actual journalism.

peertube is on the service roadmap for an upcoming project. i'm formally organizing a cooperative in the coming months, so maybe we can come to some kind of mutually beneficial agreement?

@xj9 @disroot @witchescauldron
thanks for the positive response!
My bandwidth also is limited by my mobile data, as I do not currently have satellite internet #wifimax roll on #5g lol

@xj9 @disroot @adinfinitum sounds like a good connection, have a look back at this hashtage to see what am upto with the project. I have some small funding to keep the servers online for meany years.

@adinfinitum @disroot @xj9 @visionontv is looking for a new volunteer sys admin if you know anyone :)

Founded on #4opens, motivated by the #PGA hallmarks and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its an unfettered space for Activists and groups to communicate via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.

How are OMN projects run?
