#nothingnews is an attempt to overcome the churning of alt tech and #dotcons been doing this stuff for more than 20 years and have seen hundreds of me to/NGO projects grow and fail, rise repeat for ever into a flow of pointlessness. its a BLOCK that we have lived with for way to long.
In resent years the first project to get me motivated was Mastodon and #activertypub as both were based on #nothingew they were evaluations of existing projects and standards - twitter/tweetdeck and atom/pubsubhub
#indymediaback is an example, like mastodon etc. of rebooting an historical usefulness social Alt-tech project from before it was ripped apart and then building it using modern standards from the experience of moving past the last 10 years failer
One thing that we believe, is that its not enough to say Peertube is an open-source version of YouTube. That's only a third of the story. We find that ppl are engaged by the idea that it federates over the same protocol as the social media protocol of the fediverse and that videos are torrented between servers, so a popular video can be streamed by multiple servers.
We've been getting good feedback from people re our advocacy of the Fediverse lately.
