This is the problem, not the solution.
These people are adding to the #techshit shifting the focus to pointlessness. But they were "our" people at one time.
#OGB The current plan is #4opens to build a production/coding team, go for funding, expanding the coding team, build the tools, test the tools, roll out this test to a real user base - likely not the #Fediverse to test. While these last stages are happening, we can try and ratify it though some process on socialhub or just roll it out #permissionless and see if people use it, both are fine by me.
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.

The Open Media Network is a trust based, human moderated, #4opens 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, useing technology to build human networks. There are ONLY 5 main functions:
The #OMN is a standards based political software framework to build #KISS and #4opens grassroots semantic web of trust links and flows. We do this by outlining a human understandable workflow and then building apps for real world use. We are agnostic on the underlighing technology and programming as long as it is #4opens based.
An example of the #geekproblem
Everything we do is built on "standards" though we do have a problem of the defining bodies.
Some people like building sandcastles, it is what you are doing if you just make shit up in tech.
Actually this is fantasy as ANYTHING you are already building is already on top of a whole pile of standards.
I think people are expressing tribalism and not talking tech in practical sense at all.
What do you think?
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 🙂
We have a flood of historical and contemery activism videos flowing here into the #Fediverse https://visionon.tv/videos/trending?s=1 as this is a grassroots #DIY project based on the #4opens trhe is a need for people to put these videos into flows and add tags to bring relevance and allow people to find connections. Message me here if you would be interested in taking on any role in this. The #OMN is a trust network, let's build some trust.
Thus, the federated "governance" and the #OMN etc. projects for "taking" grassroots power, without asking, just growing and likely fighting when reaction hits back as it always does.
How to sustain the #4opens at this point will be a challenge that I don't have ideas for, but bake it in deep is a step to build from.
Most people are not interested in buying corn seeds, people won’t bread, but the first is needed to make the second. In a #4opens world, how do we mediate these needs to desires? We currently use "seed" funding, interesting to look at other/more ideas.
For bridges to stand they need foundations on both sides - open process is making these foundations clear - in meany open projects they are well merky... most have a lot of rot and even poison in them. We need to mediate this #4opens
We need to focus on "open/closed" in funding agender - meany of the projects the #EU has funded are "closed" this is the default mindset. I would recommend the #4opens as a way to mediate this https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/wiki #ngiforum21 #NGI
Have you seen the https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/wiki it's a way to look at projects to see if they are #openweb or not. It's a good way of making a judgment if you should use a new project #4opens
Here are 10 sample #4opens reviews to help you to understand what its about and how you can use this simple way of judging if a project is worth supporting or not https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/issues
I put the #4opens into their own space as a #OMN project so people can add reviews https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/wiki/Home
What are the #4opens and why can they help to get us out of the current #techmess you can take a step to finding out here https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/Open-Media-Network/wiki/4opens
