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
When we talk about radical/progressive language issues people are full of #blocking and ignoring so the same issue is continually brought up but never mediated. This leads to a growth of bad will and the destruction of the social commons.
Get off, your knees.
The current open-source/free software world is based on medieval political ideas of aristocracy and monarch, this is OBVIOUSLY useless in the modern world.
Our tech is hopelessly mired in the #geekproblem, so we need to compost a shitload of this.
The path out of both of these #blocking paths is an old one based on trust and humanity.
Let's reboot the #openweb with grassroot democracy at its core.
This easily pushes the #dotcons out to let "us" focus on useful projects, social tech needs the social/democratic.
The #mainstreaming mess we are in. Now we have to compost a pile of our own #techshit and try and mediate the #geekproblem that keeps adding to our mess.
Think democracy is a VERY good start https://unite.openworlds.info/.../wiki/Statements-of-support please add a statement of support.
The are a undead class of people in every subculture, in the tech #fedivers we have the usual dogmatic fluffys and wonabe liked #fashionistas takeing up space while churning the "common" sense process that failed every similar movemt in the past.
This happens in all movements I have been involved with for the last 30 years, look at the mess, can we mediate this for a different outcome please this time.
A good organic point, maybe we can have a selection of badges.
* Traditional = metal, gold, silver, bronze
* New = organic
Would you like to name 3 organic badges for the #4opens
The project is a people who put the work in get the power, with basic #4opens process which for now is pretty much announcing things on #openweb, #failbook and #twitter then just doing it if no feedback
Chaotic #KISS is good for ruff consensus 🙂
"Common sense" is capitalism
"common sense" is conservatism
Let's get a bit creative and build some bridges away from current "common sense" and build up other spaces where "common sense" can grow to replace the current #shitpile we build stuff on.
Composting is the new "common sense"
If you are interested in the #OMN the list of projects on the wiki pages https://unite.openworlds.info/explore/organizations the is much #DIY work to find at different tech and social skills, ask question about what you find interesting and can point to jobs that need focus.
