Our tech is hopelessly mired in the #geekproblem, so we need to compost a shitload of this.
The path out of both of these #blocking paths is an old one based on trust and humanity.
Let's reboot the #openweb with grassroot democracy at its core.
This easily pushes the #dotcons out to let "us" focus on useful projects, social tech needs the social/democratic.
This "common sense" is destroying and feeding the #dotcons online and killing community offline.
We need ideas on how to mediate this #stupidindividualism to reduce the damage.
The #OMN is a #DIY grassroots gift economy. Over the next few weeks, huge numbers of historical activist videos are arriving. To add value/community to this flow we need moderates to put the videos into subject/channels and add tags to share them on #dotcons and #openweb we need to them make stories to bridge this history to current campaigning.
Interesting running #DIY grassroots tech projects as without users they fail. So if people stay outside then the project goes nowhere and the users are left to die in the #dotcons like the #mainstreming heard they critic on the #dotcons they cannot leave.
This is an apt description of the #deathcult that we all live in. stepping away IS FORM of activism.
http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/05/06/the-geekproblem-humanitys-and-science/ What has worked for the fedivers to overcome the geekproblem is the copying of existing #dotcons as #openweb tools. This copying has mediated the gap between the humanities and the sciences by taking existing (bad) human technological relationships and building copy’s in the (good) openweb.
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/whatsapp-imessage-facebook-apple-fbi-privacy-1261816/ If you are interested in security rather than #securitytheater then use an open-sources activist hosted chat app. Don't use one from the #dotcons
If you like playing games you can see word magic (wiki link) in the #hashtags, if you are practical you can translate them into traditional definitions – for example #deathcult = neo-liberalism #dotcons = dotcom as in the boom and busts #fahernista is simple a fashionable person in any subject etc. its easy to see that its NOT complex at this level.
What we have been talking about with the left taking up #openweb tech has been moving much faster by the right https://www.vice.com/en/article/5dgm5k/truth-social-is-mastodon-trump this is the same tech (#activertypub) we are building out with the #OMN project.
The left is still STUCK inside the mess of the #dotcons this has to be changed/challenged.
#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.
