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.

I wrote this meany years ago for the sidebar of my blog "A river that needs crossing political and tech blogs – On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity" and we still have a long way to bridge this understanding hole #OMN
"The security context is the relationships between a security referent and its environment. From this perspective, security and insecurity depend first on whether the environment is beneficial or hostile to the referent, and also how capable is the referent of responding to its/their environment in order to survive and thrive."
