Where is the positive in this mess? I would look at the current healthy projects. I would strongly advise and incurage people to "use them of lose them" and use a tool like the to step away from the obvious and pushing. Pick up a and compost the mess plant seeds of your own lived life and nurture/water the social gardens with your care.

Don't ask, just do it.

The are flocking to the reboot the have been a load of blog posts... the problem is that this is a parasite class of people... are the fragile projects healthy anuf to survive this in rush of pthogines? Where is our immune response

The strength of the is "accidental" it's not in the standards, it's not in the codebase, it's not in the power politics that these forces play. It's in the good and process. Everything else is a distraction and if this distraction gains too much power it will likely self-destruct into infighting and ripping apart.

The is coding for Serenity/security/certainty where it does not exist - this is the root to the withering tree of digital fascism.

It's anti-human not surprisingly.

The is trusting in humane networks to build their own workflow of "trust" this is the root to democracy.

This is human, all to human.

Yes I really do use the word "fascism" as this is where the current leave us with the pushing of driving righwing politics.

Just to highlight are always crap for good outcomes if they dominate the core of any radical grassroots project.

They have a use in the periphery and are core to growth of successfully grassroots projects.

So we are not rejecting them, but we are mediating their core activity. The and help to mediate the core/periphery working process.

We need to build based infrastructure. This needs to have radical social DNA at its roots and are examples of this. We need to abandon the 100s of pointless tech projects and at the same time step away from tech. An example of what we need a simple path out of this mess.

Just about all tech and political projects are pointless:

A river that needs crossing political and tech - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over complexity

A solution to this churning is "nothing new" most of the issues we face have already been solved or at least mediated.

and is a way of stepping away from the current tech mess. Politics is a bit more complex.

The reader has no power as they have no buy in - the "user" a little power to post/comment from account. The "producer" should likely be promoted to "mod" as soon as they are trusted.

The "mod" have as much power as possible without endangering the instance.

The "admin" have strong power BUT a VERY strong social rule not to use it. The running of the instance is in the hands of the "mod/producer"

Actions are socially mediated by the with audit logs to bring transparency.

agenders have killed and will kill meany more radical tech projects. Look under the lid is the project is a good first step to mediate this one.

Interesting look at a project en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?o notice ""Strict scrutiny" means that any measures instituted for security must address a compelling community interest, and must be narrowly tailored to achieve that objective and no other. " We have come a long way from this with our agenders.

is completely upscaleable in a social sense - its a devide and control stratagy from the and we have to start stepingaway from this mess. You can do this by clicking the hashtags links and fallowing the flow of the project before starting one on one to clarifer issues to get involved. Or use a search engine to find and read background blog posts and project process

* Capitalism wants to privatise metadata to the capitalists and the capitalist then control the government - fascism is back into fashion.

* Chinese communism, wants the state to control the metadata, so they can control capitalism, we are back to the command economy on steroids.

* Liberalism want to privatise metadata to the individual to return to a mythic free-market past.

* What does anarchism want is an attempt to answer this last one.


The is a standards based political software framework to build and grassroots semantic web of trust links and flows. We do this by outlining a human understandable workflow and then build radical real world apps from this. We are agnostic on the underlighing technology and programming as long as it is based.

All the and tech projects are based on lies and misinformation to convince you that they are not and in the surface this is hard to see through this At the we have a simple tools to lift the lid to judge if a project is worth supporting with your time and use. This tool is the here is an example of a review hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2 you can be a part of this and help make the tech world less of shit heap.

Are your friends moving to a new chat app?

To start you in the right direction you can use the to judge if a tech project is worth supporting. Used well it gets rid of 90% of the and the crap and weeds the to a manageable level. Pretty simple to do please post reviews on your blog with in the tags so we can aggregate the reviews hamishcampbell.com/index.php/p
