The video is little better than #deathcult worship, but the social tech it talks about is interesting.
The culture of "hackers of yore" were the problem, the #geekproblem
The projects all DIED when the geeks took control of the foundations and the #fashernista took control of the facared.
It's all non-political hardwear...
This stuff is pointless without a strong, active community to use/grow it, though #OGB
Do you think they understand this social/tech #geekproblem
Academic constipation mixed with the #geekproblem
The is no conversation on trust/control in social technology
Academic constipation mixed with the #geekproblem https://docs.decidim.org/en/whitepaper/decidim-a-brief-overview/ is the problem and little to do with the solution.
The is more power in messy than in "control" with the #OGB social technology is first human.
We need a long hard look at the #geekproblem to mediate a better social outcome from our lovely geeky subcultures.
http://hamishcampbell.com/2022/04/15/stepping-away-from-our-tech-mess-you-need-to-compost-it/ One of the main #BLOCKING in alt tech is CHURN we need to mediate this #geekproblem
Open/closed as useful metaphor, judge projects and orgs by the #4opens is a good first step https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/4opens/issues
We have a riddle with the #geekproblem in that it's about the geeks (as a group) not seeing that some of their shared "common sense" is a HUGE problem.
A (anti-common sense) book on "groups" is a step they could see themselves, what do you think?
you are seeing the end game of ALL vertical alternative organisations.
It's beyond pointless to set up more crappy vertical/#ngo projects as parts of the grassroots.
Please don't push more of this common sense shit, the are piles to compost, shoval?
We came to this concusern https://theconversation.com/online-anonymity-study-found-stable-pseudonyms-created-a-more-civil-environment-than-real-user-names-171374 more than 10 years ago for the #OMN project.
#pseudonyms is healthy balance in social tech.
It avoids the #geekproblem of "trustless" computing and gives humane freedom that are so important to social thinking/life.

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.
