incurage plugins for alt/grassroots search results to mix with the results. A "stepaway" project unite.openworlds.info/Open-Med looking for people to build the search plugins for the codebases if you know anyone looking for a usefull and intresting project.

The problem was have faced for the last 20 years is that alt media has been pushed into "closed" by different threads. This has centralized control around the who are driven by a unhealthy data mining for control and profit. Directly leading to the "fakenews" the mainstream article's have been talking about. Open while not perfect is a different path.

Problem terms a teenage mix of arrogance and ignorance that is pretty universal and a self interested pushing of greed over human need. All basic stuff that it's good to have an opinion on and would definitely be a bad thing not to have an opinion on ;)

If you are intrested in the things used to cover we.riseup.net/imc-uk it gives you a poosative view of what our media could be if we steped away from the current mess.

Life inside the algorithm. People fight for this, they troll for this. It's a form of digital addiction. is the breeding of victim culture, its growing, its built in, it's a desired outcome of the agender. What do you think

A lot of the more tech minded run workshops on campining on as our ones healthy tools were ripped apart by the

You guys need to get busy with spades to compost the shit you spread around in the digital world. And spreading more shit just makes the alt a more smelly uninvited.

I put up with years of trolling on this subject. it's a good time to balance this and for the first time do something useful

When people deny the history of reposabilerty then they deny reality and join the "post truth world" of Trump and Boris.

The majority of my friends are both sad and bad on this subject as they don't remember the times they argued that the were not evil and cat memes were the right thing to do as the world heated up and is now catching fire.

On the people are pathetic when it comes to technology that shapes there lives. The level of passive defeat is both sad and bad

We can't keep going down this path of course the guy righting this is a liberal fantasist "these leaders have learned to harness the democratizing power of social media for their own purposes" The were designed to be used for "social control" it's called advertising. Everything he says is an issue but the guy is an idiot, you can be both at the same time, though a lot of people find that hard to understand.

Some counter intuitive thinking:

The fedivers has little original in the code bases, they are rebuilds of existing this is a part of why it grew, when all the other projects withered.

With this in mind we reboot a successful project en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independ (not the best history of the project but it's what we have) taking into account why it died and why it worked.

You now have a little understanding of why use in general. To link to the diggers en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diggers its commons verses private property. The hashtag is a commons and the LIKE is private property. And I can hear you thinking, why does this matter to me. Data and metadata are the gold/slaves/oil of the 21st century, who controls data control the world. Using the we hand "them" total control of the data and metadata thus the world

Leaving the rest in slavery, and then dieing them selves when the is no balence of power left to protect them.

Moving to more “ethical” is attempting to ignore the issue of privatisation of power. See the problem above.

Meany of the people reading this feel angry and likely think the best outcome would be for us to leave the internet/networks or move to more ethical

Both these responses miss the core point of power.

To leave the network is to leave the struggle and give “them” total social and political power. Power exists, it's the human condition to pick up a tool. Opting out of “power struggles” is only viable for affluent people who do not have to struggle to survive.

There is lots more to this. In this case the power that you give to and google is being sold to the police so that they can control us better. This illustrates that the are total social control and feed into the force side of the state. Who would think cat memes could do so much harm to us all.

Power always exists the important question is who has access to this power.

With the its privatised to capital and state actors. With the it is shared to much wider social groupings. Using their tools, like, share, time on article, friend etc the data (value) is captured for their profit. Using our tools the the data is kept (to a degree) in the and in the commons.

Its about who has the power, give it to "them" or share it with "us" its your choice.

Q. What does using hashtags to open up the data mean please?

A. that's an intelligent question. It's a complex answer. Both social and practical. Technological and personal.

There is power in data/metadata . The valuation of the comes from this power.

The question of power is always who holds/controls it.

The are setup to privatize this power and sell it to the existing power structures. To become a partner in the ruling class.

youtu.be/_Wlsd9mljiU Yep, for people who do not understand how current basic AI systems are being created. In a simple sense, it's through feeding huge changeing social data sets into neural networks on repeat. The data sets are owned by facebook and goggle. AI is being created by you clicking on like and sharing cat videos in the The (social) WE are creating this outcome. Its way past time to stepaway from this being focused on war and instead focues our intensity on peace

Pratt, troll, monster is the norm on and in general. Our use of them has shifted social truth on this. How to we start to shift this back
