The #fahernistas embraced the mess for sugar and spices.
Shovels and composting come to mind - I use the shovel metaphor because its our sweat and work that will get us out of this mess.
The is no magic tech fix, it's a human problem that needs humane crew to solve it.
The #geekproblm blocking humanity.
The #geekproblem is coding for Serenity/security/certainty where it does not exist - this is the root to the withering tree of digital fascism.
It's anti-human not surprisingly.
This is human, all to human.
The #geek[problem see standards like a "cult" sees standards
Neo-liberalism sees economics like a "cult" sees the world. In this it can be seen as a #geekproblem as it has the same roots.
Have had this on the side of my blog for more than 10 years "A river that needs crossing political and tech – On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over complexity"
Just to add that I was involved in the history of these though took no part in the project ripping.
From my view you have two sides both deeply #geekproblem
Open grassroots media was pushed onto the trash heap by #geekproblem agenders.
A bad outcome #indymediaback
We need to build #4opens based infrastructure. This needs to have radical social DNA at its roots #PGA and #indymediaback are examples of this. We need to abandon the 100s of pointless #geekproblem tech projects and at the same time step away from #NGO tech. An example of what we need #OMN a simple #KISS path out of this mess.
Approaches to security are subject of debate.
For example, in debate about security strategies, some argue that security depends on developing protective and coercive capabilities in order to protect the security referent in a hostile environment (and potentially to project that power into its environment, and dominate it to the point of supremacy). The #geekproblem strives for this outcome without putting it into words.
We are doing the same project at the #OMN though we clearly let the users/producers define the community growing from the grassroots use. If you don't trust the people you cannot have real democratic institutions and are left with feudal (#mainstreaming traditional open-source dev), capitalism (the #dotcons) or #geekproblem (most radical tech) as a path, none of these are the world we need to be building is my view.
https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption The is no fix for this that the #geekproblem can come up with. the #encryponist agender is killing us all and this is not a metaphor #XR
Fluffy self-help advice for the #geekproblem we have to mediate to start to shovel the mess https://wiredforhappy.com/the-true-meaning-of-the-phrase-i-dont-trust-anyone/
This is a #peertube instance http://visionon.tv displaying a video from another peertube instance called kolektiva - they are talking #activitypub the same feed language as mastodon so their posts can be shared and commented on from your mastodon account but you might have to work out how to do this as it's still a bit of a #geekproblem
In webdev #KISS is more valuable than functionality as people can create their own functions and workflow from #KISS tools, but they can ONLY do what the #geekproblem tells them to do from functional tools.
I learn this from the rise and fall of the wonderful couch-surfing DIY project and the death of the bad couch-surfing #NGO project.
http://visionon.tv loving having a upto date #peertube 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 #dotcons the problem we face is getting #geekproblem understanding of this "soft" approach against the instinkt for the fast "hard" defaults that come over from the mainstream.
