How are we thinking about this subject http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2020/11/17/why-are-the-so-meny-manure-piles-online/ thinking about the use of the #openweb
@charly welcome to a small part of the #openweb people are generally friendly. Though the last few weeks we have had disruption from conspiracy and right wing accounts. Think we might be on an attack list as they keep coming back. We sometimes make new accounts invite only for a time to part mediate this, just to give you a heads up.
The hashtags are designed to make the mainstream as dirty as possible so people see the need to pick up #openweb #4opens tools "spades" to clear the stinking shit and pools of piss #climatechaos is increasingly going to show we live in (consumerism/alienating work/greed is good) makes compost (decay of death) to plant seeds (fertile life) to grow flowers (lifecult). It's a convoluted metaphor
We will be expanding with the test federating indymedia roll out sites over the next few days so don't be shy if you have some skills get in touch.
I am looking for examples of the last two http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2020/11/17/why-are-the-so-meny-manure-piles-online/
I can’t actually think of an example where the users are actually empowered off the top of my head – ideas?
Good #openweb projects try to empower the producers/user they are not meany of these.
Can anyone think of examples?
The #openweb was ripped apart by meany forces.
#geekproblem narrowed this into an irrelevant subculture.
#fashernistas in braced the bad in both sides for self-interest, greed and fame.
#dotcons privatized data and metadata to the service of profit and social control. All the above groups played their role in this.
The #openweb is a hollow shell for most people
With the current #openweb reboot going on there's a lot of default thinking that is bad, and we do need to learn to judge between the good and bad paths if it's to live up to its potential. Let's start to give examples: http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2020/11/16/outreaching-the-openweb/
To move away from the current mess we have to look at (and rethink) this https://www.w3.org/standards/semanticweb/ the problem with the current aproch is #geekproblem and top down. This obvusly will not work,as it has always failed in the past.
So learn from the mess and stepway to a bottom up grassroots approach which is the only way of doing these things. This is what we are trying to build with the #OMN project.
It's all about who you empower.
#peertube is a fab bit of softwear. BUT it's also crap. Why do I say this? The fedivers is made up of clones of corpureat #dotcons which has worked well as they bring familer concepts over from the mainstream into the alternative. The problem is a #geekproblem in that the developers unthinkingly bring the workflows and ideology that are embeded in the code of these mainstream projects to the #openweb project. thus the crap that needs shovaling to make compost.
Do you need a diffrent view than the mess on your TV or #dotcons the is a real world on the #openweb you can find a look at it here https://visionon.tv/videos/watch/64cff9ca-977e-437d-8196-31167bc70d60
The is so much of this posins #deathcult 'ist tech around dressed in progressive #openweb clothes that we really need to call it out https://decrypt.co/38930/block-one-founded-voice-allows-public-posts-opens-to-friends-of-beta-users BUT on the web linking to this crap promoted it - ideas for ethical composting.
http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2020/10/24/rich-compost-in-technology/ nature and tecnolagy a path to to the #openweb
https://realize.be/blog/activitypub-drupal#comment-5048 the #openweb is being rebooted, intresting this could be a good #OMN news codebase?
Its hard to keep #openweb tools that we value in place if people do not understand the the tech they are based on https://themarkup.org/ask-the-markup/2020/10/08/podcast-privacy-tracking-listener-data
Interested in the human behind the technology of the #openweb this is interesting (but not riveting) https://conf.tube/videos/watch/6289920f-4e35-4141-ab6f-379b357849ec
#openweb is a better place than the #dotcons https://conf.tube/videos/watch/d8c8ed69-79f0-4987-bafe-84c01f38f966 this explanies why in human terms.
