We need a long hard look at the #geekproblem to mediate a better social outcome from our lovely geeky subcultures.
Open/closed as useful metaphor, judge projects and orgs by the #4opens is a good first step https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/issues
The #OMN is invisible to people who look for "power", it is opaque to people who look for status, it's beyond useless for people who look for money.
What is it good for,? if you can see value, please add your thoughts in comments:
Our old friends in activism took the heathy internal stresses that were braking projects like #indymedia to feed a #fashernista vampire class, to built careers feeding on and draining grassroots corpus for 20 years.
It's not a good look #indymediaback these people are the ones you talk to when you talk to "power".
Good to remember the mess that activist process geeks made in activism. As these are the same people who build process in our social free softwear projects.
Our #fashionista cheer on this destruction of the "commons" with no clue of the damage they do.
Most of the tech built is #techshit and just adds to the work of shovaling and composting.
Most good software tech value is in the social "use" the technical codeing it self has little value, the are huge piles of decaying code with little "use" value.
The #geekproblm is that this "value" is invisible to the people codeing that then end up adding more churn to the techshit pile.
Our liberal #foundation models are a complete disaster https://lunduke.substack.com/p/linux-foundation-spends-just-34-of
They are way to easey to capture to #fashernista agenda. I have seen this EVERY time over the last 30 years in actavisam and tech.
Time for composting this shit #OGB
