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.

Time for the semantic web? That's the project from the bottom up. Most semantic web projects are top down and pure :) make the right choice.

Found a circle on the talking about the the issue at the hart of the problem is that geeks can't see the problem. Go round a few circals with them and arrive no nearer them seeing the problem.

Q. What is the geek problem?

Problem terms a teenage mix of arrogance and ignorance that is pretty universal and a self interested pushing of greed over human need. All basic stuff that it's good to have an opinion on and would definitely be a bad thing not to have an opinion on ;)

The 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.

A lot of the more tech minded run workshops on campining on as our ones healthy tools were ripped apart by the

You guys need to get busy with spades to compost the shit you spread around in the digital world. And spreading more shit just makes the alt a more smelly uninvited.

I put up with years of trolling on this subject. it's a good time to balance this and for the first time do something useful

Some counter intuitive thinking:

The fedivers has little original in the code bases, they are rebuilds of existing this is a part of why it grew, when all the other projects withered.

With this in mind we reboot a successful project en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independ (not the best history of the project but it's what we have) taking into account why it died and why it worked.

If we build in automation then we will have lots of middling quality sites that are borderline usefull. A signal to noise issue. The will be less motivation to spesherlise and the network will likly fail becouse of this.

less is more is a core of the project. The is the desire to improve the network with better tools ;)

"A look at the

In the alt tech, everything is broken. At the heart of this is an assumption that control and certainty are needed for good software. Were in reality software matches the human condition of transentery/lossy. Trying to force the first ideal is why most of our alt projects do not work. This is the base of the "

Ideas/strategies to mediate/overcome this unspoken block?
