http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/03/05/at-the-omn-we-have-a-number-of-openweb-tools-for-you-to-use/ At the #OMN we have a number of #openweb tools for you to use
Hope is affective social challenge/change. The is no hope in #mainstreaming this is carrier building and statues games for individuals.
We live in an era of reactionary politics that the rightwing use by appealing to a sense of injustice and then, instead of focusing anger on the rightful target (capitalism etc) they create a movement to serve their own class interests, in most cases this is #stupidindividualism of far right libertarianism.
Of course this can and will be updated as needed, but we have a “chicken and egg” issue that we need a working affinity group/s to reach consensus on where we go. The #indymediaback project is a way of bootstrapping this code/process in #4opens way.
To keep “diversity of strategy” in place we are using the #OMN framework.
And the KEY WORD is "WE" if you missed that bit as you maybe did.
WE need to build the #OMN
Not me, not your idea, not my idea... ideas that are embedded in social movement #indymediaback is a project for YOU and OUR community to rally round and build real alternatives to #stupidindividualism and other #deathcult dogmas that shape pour dreams and lives.
Our end plan in the #OMN is that all the content is redundantly stored in the network in a #KISS way, so traditional backup is less important -when it goes wrong, and it will sometimes as we are home hosting. Just boot up a new noid put your hashtags and user info in and all your content will be sucked back in a #lossy good anufe way. This makes home hosting work well enough to scale outward to build a #openweb
This is an interesting expirence for us https://www.datacenterdynamics.com/en/news/ovh-fire-while-police-investigate-cause-ovhcloud-promises-free-backups-future/ we lost our #xmpp chat server in this fire.
Makes me think about the project and the #geekproblem that has blocked the last 10 years of rollout. Our #OMN plan has ALWAYS been home hosting of our content. BUT this has been BLOCKED due to security issues that to me are beyond pointless - looking at this fire you can kinda see the point in my view. Beyond pointless...
From a soft perspective you can look at this at its root is "conservatism" vs "liberalism" or fear vs hope... we live in a ear where FEAR is very strong and the is little HOPE...
https://twobithistory.org/2018/05/27/semantic-web.html at the #OMN we are building a "stupid" grassroots version of the #semanticweb based on "trust" and affinity. The most important value is #KISS
A post from a self-confessed tech "jerk" on how we got into this mess https://scobleizer.blog/2012/02/04/its-too-late-for-dave-winer-and-john-battelle-to-save-the-common-web/ kinda funny building a following in google+ And yes we did lose this battle in 2008 and the last 10 years of #openweb tech dev is a pile of stinking #techshit maybe it's time for composting? Do you need a shovel #OMN
What is the #OMN project for http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2021/03/10/what-is-the-omn-project-for
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/technology/ovh-data-center-burns-down-knocking-major-sites-offline/ has nocked our chat server offline.... this highlights that some services need to be "trust" and others/most can live with "lossy" at the #OMN we are building out the "lossy" as the whole #geekproblem has been focused on "control" for way to long. Who is up for working on rebalancing?
The only question that matter is who has "power" and the only humane solution we have found so far is "democracy" to spread the power as widely as possible. This combined with "liberalism" - let people do as they like, strength in diversity.
These two have shaped the world of almost everyone reading this toot.
Our society often confuses personal power -- "power within" -- with "power over," which is about controlling others. There is a vast difference" a balancing that we try to achieve #OMN

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.
