OK am starting to feel like am trolling "Reimagine the Internet" as its all academic and #dotcons history.
The same people and the same story we have heard for the last wasted 10 years.
It's off TOPIC I feel like shouting though out the oneway ZOOM video presentation - you can find their video's on youtube.
After proding they are talking about putting them on #peertube ;)
Upload a PDF "No, I think not."
Trying to upload a formatted text doc to a #openweb project.
"Needs a settings change, and then its possible. But it is disabled by default, because people might upload malicious PDF’s, so there’s that."
OK that raise the question of what is a good UX safe non #dotcons formatted text document. And why after 20 years of #openweb dev do I have to even ask this question. This second point is likely the more interesting one to try and ansear.
People in tech are rethinking the power and use of "group" we should keep an eye on what's happening in the #dotcons here is a view of #failbooks changes https://www.facebook.com/community/whats-new/new-public-groups-experience-coming-soon-all-groups/
We can't keep doing this, please try not to push #mainstreaming agenders as the current outcome is BAD, and we need to try and make things better.
This is a different view of the world https://firstname.lastname@example.org/videos that you will not see on the #dotcons
#nothingnews is an attempt to overcome the churning of alt tech and #dotcons been doing this stuff for more than 20 years and have seen hundreds of me to/NGO projects grow and fail, rise repeat for ever into a flow of pointlessness. its a BLOCK that we have lived with for way to long.
In resent years the first project to get me motivated was Mastodon and #activertypub as both were based on #nothingew they were evaluations of existing projects and standards - twitter/tweetdeck and atom/pubsubhub
Censorship on the#fedivers is different to censorship on the #dotcons http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2021/03/14/censorship-on-the-fedivers-is-different-to-censorship-on-the-dotcons/
A post from a few years ago.
Where is the positive in this mess? I would look at the current healthy #openweb projects. I would strongly advise and incurage people to "use them of lose them" and use a tool like the #4opens to step away from the obvious #dotcons #NGO and #fahernisat pushing. Pick up a #shoval and compost the mess #DIY plant seeds of your own lived life and nurture/water the social gardens with your care.
Don't ask, just do it.
The #fahernistas embraced the mess for sugar and spices.
Shovels and composting come to mind - I use the shovel metaphor because its our sweat and work that will get us out of this mess.
The is no magic tech fix, it's a human problem that needs humane crew to solve it.
The #geekproblm blocking humanity.
