#indymediaback one thing to keep in mind, I think we/indymedia crew learned the wrong lesson from these raids/repression.
We pushed fear/control as a solution, which added to the mess #closedweb
When making judgments, let's be #KISS, to see through the mess.
Shovels and compost #OMN
Hard to see how you can do a left wing project without showing the workings
open/trust - left
We fall to easily into
fear/control - right
It's what the page is about.
Yep the whole #dotcons side of the EU funding agenda is poison and only feeds the mess.
As I highlight, just about all funding is poured strate down the drain, it's the normal outcome.
We have a churning problem in alt-tec.
Activertypub was built from pubsubhub which was built from atompub with was built from RSS which was born in the high tide of the #openweb since this first step it's been down hill in progressive tech leading to the majority move to the #dotcons and our current shit heap.
Stop the churn, stop it now.
"With solidarity largely a thing of the past, it is vital the left reclaim it as a way of organising in order to successfully resist capitalism."
When a #openweb project is flooded by nuttyness the "real" people leave and likely go back to the #dotcons when you push conspiracy and act dogmatic then you are damaging the possabilery of a better world not helping to build it.
Please stop and think if this is you. Keep your media real. Do good not harm.
If you are interested in the healthy of the #openweb and thus our social health, leading to ecological heath, leading to a heathy shared planet you need to stop eating the shiny/sweet #dotcons and play a role in promoting open communications. The https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/wiki are a good way for normal people to take this small step. Live and learn or keep swallowing the poison and die #XR it's a simple stark choice you face, and we all face this TODAY.
Changing the subject to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem attacks, is in no way an ansear.
Words have meaning http://hamishcampbell.com a few posts on this subject.
Feeling insulted is not a view of truth, it's a feeling.
In the next 5-10 years I see a lot of BLOCKING and lots of blowing of smoke to cover this behaver.
I live on a lifeboat, it's not a metaphor.
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/
