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.
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 #omn
Some counter intuitive thinking:
With this in mind we reboot a #grassroots successful project https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_Media_Center (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 #geekproblem is the desire to improve the network with better tools ;)
"A look at the #geekproblem
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 #geekproblem "
looking back at #indymedia video the outcome of all this http://web.archive.org/web/20110920222307/https://docs.indymedia.org/Global/DiyMediaLabs was largly woffal and hot air.
Our history is poorly told.
Looking back at the hitory of video #indymedia the documentation is deeply #fashernista and had heaps of #geekproblem in it http://web.archive.org/web/20110121132854/https://docs.indymedia.org/Global/VideoActivismFAQ
Idea to escape the media manipulation that puts Trump and Johnson into power and will keep doing this as its the business models of #dotcons and #tredtionalmedia Were are the tools to organize. Am asking a simple question and giving a simple sulution #DIY with as strong a protection against #fashernistas cooption and #geekproblem irrelevance.
If your project is ideological and your are pushing it as a universal sulution then you are pushing nothing socially useful. Only projects that bridge ideological differences are useful at social scales. This is a simple truth that all #geekproblem projects miss.
