loving having a upto date instance. But the moderation tools are bad, they have a NEGATIVE agenda where it would be much better if they had a POSITIVE agender. We should be moving content not blocking content when we moderate. This is left over thinking from the the problem we face is getting understanding of this "soft" approach against the instinkt for the fast "hard" defaults that come over from the mainstream.

The was ripped apart by meany forces.

One thing the fediverse tought us is that copying existing successfully projects is a root out of the that embrace. So this up to a point is the right thing to do for social change. We for the first time put a spin on it by rebooting a radical grassroots social tech project. But behind this is something much more radical. The lets see if we can plant and nurture a seed. Think the soil is a little dry past time for some compost, get your spades out.


To move away from the current mess we have to look at (and rethink) this the problem with the current aproch is and top down. This obvusly will not work,as it has always failed in the past.

So learn from the mess and stepway to a bottom up grassroots approach which is the only way of doing these things. This is what we are trying to build with the project.

It's all about who you empower.

is a fab bit of softwear. BUT it's also crap. Why do I say this? The fedivers is made up of clones of corpureat which has worked well as they bring familer concepts over from the mainstream into the alternative. The problem is a in that the developers unthinkingly bring the workflows and ideology that are embeded in the code of these mainstream projects to the project. thus the crap that needs shovaling to make compost.

.This is an example of open/closed thinking its one of the core unspoken devided in tech and at the hart of the

What are the hashtags? were were digital would would make you rich. To 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 and embrace this mess. Time to pick up a spade and compost this crap, were next?

What is the and the issue.

400 new securaty problems have just been announced for 40% of the devices in our pockets. This same story happens every month or so... these problems are at the chip level and can never be fixed in the device in your pocket.

Our "phones" are as complex as anything built by human beings. Think the British or Roman empire level of complexity siting in your pocket feeding you social media updates.

Am doing a talk at this event about the reboot project.

Need help on how to get the and crew to understand "social technology" thinking and resulting projects built on the

This is a hard sell, even though crew are probably the best ordnance around for this kinda project.

The and are both social groups we have to move aside from if we are to have hope for technical social change

The is a simple project to decisively move power from the and the to the producers of media content. From this grasssroots “commons” a new digital/economic/social ecosystem can/will grow.

As with everything human it is up to use what we do with this power.

The is simple, just html5 linking to html5 with a sprinkling of CSS they are all text formats that humans can kinda read. Its what the have built on top to control us is the complex bit. Then the is of our apps that we need to move beyond as well

Q. > the desire to control

Control what?

A. this is an intresting one. Lets try an example: the idea that "you wont somebody else to build it" unconsciously puts all responsibility in the "geeks" hands were the idea, the ui, the look and feel and the process that we are setting out to solve is not given balence in the cooperative work for the desired outcome. Think that not a bad example of the that geeks refuse to look at the problem... rinse and repeat.

Not for the first time and likely not the last time. Misunderstanding of what am saying/talking about. To be clear the is complex in that its at root a unhealthy/inhuman desire for total control.

The federated model is both pandering to the problem, here have control and diluting the problem by spreading it thinly and then turning it into vapor ie. Its a kind stepaway if you understand the problem is there to stepaway from :)

Q. Now, will you kindly define your adversaries, so I could learn who are the bad guys?

A. Its more complex than good/bad

the desire to control

the desire to belong

the desire to be rich

Desire is a human thing that can be healthy and unhealthy. I think the is a common understanding of the problem with geeks. Fashion is a bedrock of capital driven consumerism, as is the desire to be rich.
