All movements come from seeds growing in rich compost. Have nurtured quite a few over my time. Rebooting grassroots media could easily/should sprout and people walking away from the #dotcons is the time. But if we keep spreading shit on each other the smell is not inviting... now a nice bed of compost is what is needed to seed a radical movement - what is shit good for ;) spades we need spades.
What are the hashtags? #dotcoms were were digital would would make you rich. To #dotcons were it is all a con and will kill billions due to climate chaos and political nastyness over the next 100 years. Why the hashtags? We as communerty decided to abandon the #geekproblem #openweb and embrace this mess. Time to pick up a spade and compost this crap, were next?
A radical joining a #openweb project, its kinda problamatic if you join a mainstreaming big one. The guy who runs the big two servers, paid for by patron donations to the mastodon project is not the most radical of people - to be generous a #fashernista (libertarian'ish) liberal. So when push comes to shove, and it will if you get a really radical crew onto here then you guys lose your place just like you did with the #dotcons You need to look harder for a sustainable actavist instance

The #openweb was ripped apart by meany forces.
#encryptionists pushing securaty theater broke UI and trust based relationships
#geekproblem narrowed this into a irrelevant subculture.
#fashernistas inbraced the bad in both sides for self intrest, greed and fame.
#dotcons privatised data and metadata to the service of profit and social controle. All the above groups played there role in this.
The #openweb is a hollow shell for most people
Think rebooting grassroots media and/or the #openweb would be a small step in the right direction.
Knowledge and communication are both at the base of power. We are completely powerless in the #dotcons world on these subjects.
Only fantasists and loons would not agree with this simple view.
Its intresting to think about #hashtags for them to have meaning they need to become a shared social tool. The problem for us is that in the world of #stupidindividualism its taken as an act of individual expression. Thus has no function in posative social change #failbook #dotcons and #deathcult its a mess with no good outcome #XR
The silence of our crew, of the Liberals, of the Greens on our worship of the #deathcult by organizing our activisam and our media on #failbook and the #dotcons in general is deafening and defines the failure of the progressive left, and diggers and dreamers.
The longer you guys keep silent on this the deeper we fall into this stinking and self defeating HOLE.
