This is an interesting expirence for us we lost our chat server in this fire.

Makes me think about the project and the that has blocked the last 10 years of rollout. Our 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...

interesting to look back you can see the open/close argument in this article - and it was the same argument that ripped apart and is a unspoken BLOCKING of the project.

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...

Show thread at the we are building a "stupid" grassroots version of the based on "trust" and affinity. The most important value is

it's a project worth building though it is hard to get "focus" on this in a that is at the core of the prevailing and thinking/working.

A post from a self-confessed tech "jerk" on how we got into this mess kinda funny building a following in google+ And yes we did lose this battle in 2008 and the last 10 years of tech dev is a pile of stinking maybe it's time for composting? Do you need a shovel has nocked our chat server offline.... this highlights that some services need to be "trust" and others/most can live with "lossy" at the we are building out the "lossy" as the whole has been focused on "control" for way to long. Who is up for working on rebalancing?

Looking for resources for grassroots journalism training. Best I have found so far and this one is interesting on the borderlines for stepping away from the current mess

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

Where can we find useable "social truths" to know what to shovel and what to build upon

We need to build based infrastructure. This needs to have radical social DNA at its roots and are examples of this. We need to abandon the 100s of pointless tech projects and at the same time step away from tech. An example of what we need a simple path out of this mess.

From 4 years ago - The are now bread and circus and the crowed control this was actually about. The sooner we admit that we live in a gatekeeperd world worst than the old traditional media the sooner we can try and really do something about this

At the we are playing a part in rebooting the

Have updated the storage backend on can people watch a few videos and feedback if they have any issues.


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

Code is ideas put into mascion motion - in this code has all the same assumptions and ideology as human beings have. Code built from the and feeding in reaction to this is going to need some composting to be humane.

The argue that security depends principally on building the conditions in which equitable relationships can develop, partly by reducing antagonism between actors, ensuring that fundamental needs can be met, and also that differences of interest can be negotiated effectively.

building progressive alt tech we cannot repeat the behaver of the as it's a different environment, we need different agenders.

"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."
