https://www.wired.com/story/ethicis-big-tech-humanities/ if you think about this you get a view of the #geekproblem that helps you to understand the current social #techshit pushing #climatechaos
Most good software tech value is in the social "use" the technical codeing it self has little value, the are huge piles of decaying code with little "use" value.
The #geekproblm is that this "value" is invisible to the people codeing that then end up adding more churn to the techshit pile.
The current open-source/free software world is based on medieval political ideas of aristocracy and monarch, this is OBVIOUSLY useless in the modern world.
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.
The #mainstreaming mess we are in. Now we have to compost a pile of our own #techshit and try and mediate the #geekproblem that keeps adding to our mess.
Think democracy is a VERY good start https://unite.openworlds.info/.../wiki/Statements-of-support please add a statement of support.
Good to look at data and metadata for what it is, social glue that holds society together.
Take a moment to step back, our contemporary code is all shaping https://www.britannica.com/topic/liberalism
Our society/ecology is sick from this blinded worship.
From this dogmatic liberalism, one thried is our society's are moving to corporate socialism. That is "law" and norms are shaped to value a tiny number of the nastyist people at the "top".
Data and metadata is privateised. "National socialism" is the "comman sense" #mainstreaming we code for/agenest.
The address this #geekproblem some of us need to step away and code outside "liberalism" and not in reaction to fashisam.
#deathcult is a metaphor for neoliberalism.
They don't talk with in the understanding of the subject they talk about. this is sadly normal #geekproblem
http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/12/26/a-conversation-on-the-geekproblem/ a conversation from the #openweb on the #geekproblem
An example of the #geekproblem
Everything we do is built on "standards" though we do have a problem of the defining bodies.
Some people like building sandcastles, it is what you are doing if you just make shit up in tech.
Actually this is fantasy as ANYTHING you are already building is already on top of a whole pile of standards.
I think people are expressing tribalism and not talking tech in practical sense at all.
What do you think?
https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues/4611 the #geekproblem is simple a critic of a modernist point of view, the persute of control/certainty that diminishes our ability to flourish.
A problem that our "engineering" minded people need to work beyond. The #geekproblem is a good descriptive hashtag to use to thried this education.
I often find that the coders working on projects we use have different agender to us producers and users. An example of this, is looking like the new filtering tools for videos in #peertube i share the links but find you need to be logged in to actually access them as URL's likely the is a resion for this or a #geekproblem am kinda interested, what were they thinking this is for and what do the users and producers wont?
http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/03/20/if-you-look-at-contemporary-programming/ If you look at contemporary programming – you will see in theory something that looks like anarchism and in realty something that feels like Stalinist USSR or Nazi Germany. The need for control and security is at the base of our #geekproblem culture, it is an inhumane outcome, code should always be messy as should our society.
The #encryptionist poison is an illness that seeping into everything https://davidgerard.co.uk/blockchain/2021/11/26/creative-commons-is-shilling-nfts/ it's run away from the #geekproblem that started it and is now pure #deathcult and the acolytes bow and scrap their heads as they worship.
To understand how the #deathcult shapes EVERYTHING around you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4-B_2OfgUA&t=2471s this is a true look at our "borders" and the is #geekproblem at the heart of this story.
#openweb funding issues. When I have time, going to go through the NGI list from a right/left prospective to put some numbers into the arguments to make them clearer. We need some focus to move away from the current #geekproblem as the funding for the grassroots side of it ramps up and pours down the drain.
