What are the hashtags? #dotcoms were were digital would would make you rich. To #dotcons 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 #geekproblem #openweb and embrace this mess. Time to pick up a spade and compost this crap, were next?
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.
This is a hard sell, even though #activertypub crew are probably the best ordnance around for this kinda project.
Updated with #activertypub its still a valid solution.
The #openweb was ripped apart by meany forces.
#encryptionists pushing securaty theater broke UI and trust based relationships
#geekproblem narrowed this into a irrelevant subculture.
#fashernistas inbraced the bad in both sides for self intrest, greed and fame.
#dotcons privatised data and metadata to the service of profit and social controle. All the above groups played there role in this.
The #openweb is a hollow shell for most people

Q. > #geekproblem the desire to control
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 #geekproblem 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 #geekproblem 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 #4opens 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
#geekproblem the desire to control
#fahernisat the desire to belong
#dotcon 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.

The #geekproblem fight between open/closed is a dangerous game of figleaf. Media is always done in the open so trying to secure and close this is completely self defeating. In social networks its more complex, privacy is open is sudo anonymous at best. In closed in theory you can have secure p2p connections l, but for 99.9% of people running on standard corporate hardwere the is no way to trust this so agen sudo anonymous. So technology could be "secure" for .001% of people maybe.
