The are pure undiluted

The is like herding cats and when you work hard and scratch the surface you find the just the same.

We can't keep doing this, please try not to push agenders as the current outcome is BAD, and we need to try and make things better.

It's not just the sprit of the age, which it is, its the sprit of a tiny minority of people that is now grown into a worldwide problem from/for the and the alt-tech crew.

There are simple ways out of this mess and the and are examples of this path that we need to take.

The has fallowed this in that it is direct copy’s of existing useful - peertube is youtube, pixalfeed is Instagram etc. On balance has been positive, though not without its problems. Has clearly overcome the last 10 years of pointless in alt-tech for now.

is an attempt to overcome the churning of alt tech and 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 as both were based on they were evaluations of existing projects and standards - twitter/tweetdeck and atom/pubsubhub

Plan is to go back to that stage and take the different path where we did use the and instead built out tech. Almost all contemporary tech and the ideologues' underling it are that needs composting. The project is based on this SOCIAL understanding.

A post from a few years ago.

The have poised the well of alt-media at many steps I meet defeatism and negativity. Its bad timing as mainstream is stepping away from the and need a place to step to.

Yes stupid fashionable ideas have failed agen and agen, This does not mean that the basics no longer work the

People worshipped the and put their energy into the leaving the to the to dispoal. We need shovels to clear up this mess and composting to make the current tech shit into something useful.

Food for thought today.

Open is life
Closed is death

Are our geeks feeding the

10 years ago the was all about open. Our bowing down to the has left everyone pushing for closed.

For death.

Make some compost.

Where is the positive in this mess? I would look at the current healthy projects. I would strongly advise and incurage people to "use them of lose them" and use a tool like the to step away from the obvious and pushing. Pick up a and compost the mess plant seeds of your own lived life and nurture/water the social gardens with your care.

Don't ask, just do it.

This is an interesting project onionshare.org/ worth looking at for "security" beyond the and "privacy" apps.

created this mess, cannot fix this mess.

The built the The played its role in destroying alt-media and the

The 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 blocking humanity.

Most usage is a function of this is a problem as the is strong value in hashtags. They are a tool for organizing outside the constraints they are not a toy for childish individualism - now that is NOT a controversial thing to say in the era.

To highlight most of the blocks are coming from the side though the /workflow it self is a interesting challenge we have not got to yet :)

From 4 years ago - The are now bread and circus and the crowed control this was actually about. The sooner we admit that we live in a gatekeeperd world worst than the old traditional media the sooner we can try and really do something about this

Why is not a pointless radical tech project.

In the we use this tradition to replace existing projects as new projects

mediates the churning of pointless tech projects by building things that already work.

This replicating the with versions has its limits. All code is "ideology" so bringing in the to the by direct copying has its own issues to work through.
