The Open Media Network is a trust based, human moderated, project that builds a database shared across many peers. The project is more important for what it DOES NOT DO, than what it does do. It uses technology to build human networks. There are ONLY 5 main functions:

The hashtags are designed to make the mainstream as dirty as possible so people see the need to pick up tools "spades" to clear the stinking shit and pools of piss is increasingly going to show we live in (consumerism/alienating work/greed is good) makes compost (decay of death) to plant seeds (fertile life) to grow flowers (lifecult). It's a convoluted metaphor

Are a simple way to judge the value of a "alt/grassroots" tech project.

Open data – is the basic part of a project without this open they cannot work.

The was ripped apart by meany forces.

pushing security theatre broke and trust based relationships

narrowed this into an irrelevant subculture.

privatized data and metadata to the service of profit and social control. All the above groups played their role in this.

The is a hollow shell for most people


Security thorter you should ask who we are hiding from. The sad and bad outcome of just about everything is only our friends - our enemies, the state and the can almost always look behind the curtain. The rare exception of this is p2p encryption, never client server. Though the issue that makes most of security into a thin layer of cloth is the hardware and firmware our ”secure” apps run on. So many holes in these that it's all academic, what we do next with social technology

The is a practical tool to move media objects around and pipe them into flows that effortlessly add metadata in a way. You can put any thing into it and pull anything out, we are building a grassroots news network and a achieving tool, you can build what you like.

Help OMN indymedia reboot

* teach people the and review tools/projects they use/wont to use by them.

* is not about tech - all code is idolagy - the OMN its a social solution to a social problem

* It easy to keep crossing wires with "media" vs. personal. Media should be open, with clear sources, except when protecting them. Whereas personal data should default to private

* on the dev/organising site you can help by asking simple basic questions Short draft video - longer video comeing out soon.

If you are interested in radical progressive media tech yes it's and currently working on reboot

The geeks have been lieing to themselves and to us that there code can be "secure" on these devices. This has been going on for 20 years, the fantasy has been built on top of this lie, as well as our banking and governance.

Take a moment to think about this mess.

The is a way out networks move us to a different place, and likely set of problems ;)

Am doing a talk at this event about the reboot project.

Need help on how to get the and crew to understand "social technology" thinking and resulting projects built on the

This is a hard sell, even though crew are probably the best ordnance around for this kinda project.

“This is the Internet”


This Odata is the project.

Not for the first time and likely not the last time. Misunderstanding of what am saying/talking about. To be clear the is complex in that its at root a unhealthy/inhuman desire for total control.

The federated model is both pandering to the problem, here have control and diluting the problem by spreading it thinly and then turning it into vapor ie. Its a kind stepaway if you understand the problem is there to stepaway from :)

I will be happy when the apps cross standards with the apps to bridge the human nature "feeling" that feeds this "gap". The are a lot of unspoken issues and the is a strong "unspoken" push not to address them. Just about all I do nowadays is addressing the unspoken issues ;)

Been doing/at the hart this full time for more than 30 years, seen hundreds of alt tech projects wither at the vine, a very few flower. Thinking about this, have come up with a pretty much universally accepted way of judging what might flower and what will wither, i call this the other people call it open source development etc.

OMN - Projects are based on a core/periphery mission. The path to being involved is to work in the periphery for a time before being excepted into the core of the project. All the projects are based on the so the organizing process is public and everyone can have a say, though core decision making can be reserved for the core group if/as needed. How to move from the periphery to the core is a slippery thing.

Mission is “social change”, the peripheral mission is “social work”

We reboot this, social project, using modern federated technology and successful modern working practices

One is the editorial one the code and sysadmin.
