#openweb funding issues. When I have time, going to go through the NGI list from a right/left prospective to put some numbers into the arguments to make them clearer. We need some focus to move away from the current #geekproblem as the funding for the grassroots side of it ramps up and pours down the drain.
Having a go at setting up simple #diy home server
OK first attempt from a suggestion on #failbook https://www.amahi.org not surprisingly, ended in fail - after 2 hours of prodding it did not work, and also it's a bait and switch #dotcon with all the good stuff paid.
More ideas please for home media server and self-hosted public web apps.
Playing with words is like building sand castles were politics is building stone castles.
Post modernism (sand) is a perfect fit for the #DeathCult when building with sand you maybe need to think on this.
Stone makes better foundations.
I think traditional structers are dead ends for this community, if money was involved then you would get people, but the wrong ones. Without money in the era of #stupidindividualism the is nothing to gain from cooperation and voluntarism.
People can be very "stupid" when it comes to #DIY culture. It takes a wide rang of skills to make anything that is useful so as isolated (independent) individuals we can starve or ingest the #deathcult crap, in tech we do this without thinking. It's a problem.
"It takes a village to raise a child" this applies to all of life.
British politics is a mess, and the nastiest people are in control of the establishment of #deathcult ists.
The liberal foundation model will be forced onto us if the Fediverse is taken up buy large Burocratic orgs like the #EU and yes the will be a figleaf of “democracy” placed over the self-selecting oligarchy that will be put into place by “power politics” that this path embeds.
This path is the default outcome.
Should we do something that is native to the Fediverse, and what would this look like?
