Its basic stuff... and ones you digitize culture and community the only question that is important is who controls the data. The ones that do have the power to reshape us. And the only answer is #4opens simple basic stuff.
On that subject please start to use #hashtags as tags are created and held in common. In this we hold the power, please do not use the #dotcons algorithms as then the hold the power, the is the start of a revolution in this action #OMN
Post from #failbook
And for people who say this post is gobbledygook if you click on any of the links you will soon find posts defining each term. The #openweb is made of links its both sad and bad that meany lazy people i have forgotten this simple thing.
Novara Media I affectionately call them https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Useful_idiot from the prospective of radical tech and less radical #openweb prospective they produce fab content but no real desire to step away from the mainstream. They look like the wont to be the new Guardian, no bad thing as far as that goes, BUT its not the alt-media project we need #OMN
Must get boring with just saying we have fucked up all the time and pointing at simply was out of this fuckup #OMN
So who else has real practical/simple paths out of this mess. Lets hear some different views before i get back to the drum beat of doom and hope.
We have not been doing the basic stuff for the last 10 years its no wonder we are in this mess now. Talk about big ideas and big talk are just GAS with out the basic stuff to build from.

All "radical media" projects have been problematic, having fallowed them for years #fashernistas fallowing and pushing #openweb projects to #NGO thinking for funding/control. Some links on a series of projects for background http://hamishcampbell.com/?s=Realmedia We do need a #OMN not more deadends please.
This project is against the flow of #stupidindividualism that the #dotcons feed on. In this it is good AND bad ie. Its self limited to a tiny number of people who actively do #diy cooperation. And excludes the 99.9% who do not. The is no bridge here, move on #OMN
The is talk about the need to recreate radical media networks.
We need simple clear understandings of why #indymedia and altmedia in general failed before rebooting. And i use simple and not singular in this sentence just to be clear. As the differing views of why it failed are at the core of why it failed in my view. A reboot has to bridge these understandings #OMN
We don't have any media distribution because we don't have our own culture. Its a simple truth #OMN
In the westen world I would say almost all the war that matters is fought in the media. YES the disadvantaged are the casualties and the 3ed world will be disseminated. BUT they do not matter to the power plays that fight the war, collateral damage. The war that makes a difference is fought in the media and we have ZERO media distribution of our own, its a problem that undercurrents mediated for a time.
It is a media war and we have no media #OMN
When i was younger talking enthusiastically on the need for #openmedia #OMN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGfBcg6VkZg&feature=youtu.be&list=PLTGrPEmtUkeOjr48R-E3T3O6291cW3-WF
Put out the same true message for the last 10 years on the #dotcons #failbook and twitter mostly. Put the message out on the #openweb #mastadon and #OMN mostly. The dotcons this has been blocked by the #algorithms as the message not sell advertising makes #fashernistas uncomfortable with limits of there lives
What's the plan? #OMN
Nice to see a corporation take a step too jump ship from the #dotcons https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/fashion/lush-quit-close-social-why-accounts-gone-twitter-instagram-a8861836.html #lush have been talking to them about this for the last few years. Always nice to see this haveing some affect.
Find out why try this link #OMN and read back.
Outreach #openweb projects to your friends. Get actavist/political organizing off #failbook and the #dotcons is a good first step. Nothing real at a grassroots level is happening until this mediation is mediated #OMN lots of other options but they are all built from stepping over this first stumbling #BLOCK
Facebook are 'morally bankrupt liars' says New Zealand's privacy commissioner
John Edwards calls out social media giant after Christchurch attack for refusing to accept responsibility for harm
Speaking truthiness in the #dotcons #echochamber worth a read. What strategy do you have to bridge the invisible ideologies?
I have had one for the last 20 years, its not worked yet ;)
"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.
We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.
This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.
Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.
We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.
A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
