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 (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?

Idea to escape the media manipulation that puts Trump and Johnson into power and will keep doing this as its the business models of and Were are the tools to organize. Am asking a simple question and giving a simple sulution with as strong a protection against cooption and irrelevance.

Trying out some standard tech tools, we could probably fix the issues but these initial issues mean the tools are not ready for outreach. This is normal that is rearly resolved so outreach all to often fails. We need tools that work outa the box.

The users don't wont to take on responsibility
And the geeks dont wont to give it up.

just do what is mainstream
just do what is mainstream and they can have total control/security over.

ie. They feed each other.

The is not alt until these matching problems are mediated.

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 projects miss.

The is being ed the question is will these reach out into the mainstream. This, for me, will depend on addressing and issues that were a part of it failing agensts the encloses.
