Where is the positive in this mess? I would look at the current healthy #openweb projects. I would strongly advise and incurage people to "use them of lose them" and use a tool like the #4opens to step away from the obvious #dotcons #NGO and #fahernisat pushing. Pick up a #shoval and compost the mess #DIY plant seeds of your own lived life and nurture/water the social gardens with your care.
Don't ask, just do it.
The #fahernistas embraced the mess for sugar and spices.
Shovels and composting come to mind - I use the shovel metaphor because its our sweat and work that will get us out of this mess.
The is no magic tech fix, it's a human problem that needs humane crew to solve it.
The #geekproblm blocking humanity.
Why #indymediaback is not a pointless radical tech project.
#nothingnew mediates the churning of pointless tech projects by building things that already work.
Am using the "open/closed" metaphor to try and create a bridge to the "closed" world of software development. Without this bridge a lot of talent creates digital mess that the next group of people have to shovel to compost make space/ development.
Take note the humane world is in crises due to #climatechos and the resulting fascist "solutions" to these crises.
Compost is good for growing #openweb flowers and vegetables.
This is a unspoken battle between open/closed in our #openweb social networks/communitys. At this point its good to look back at the recent history for a moment. Diaspora had funding/publicerty/lots of coders and it compleatly FAILED. Mastodon had no funding, some publicerty and a singal coder and it completely Succeeded. The first was based on CLOSED the second was based on OPEN what can we learn from this going forward?
The #openweb is a space for both progressives and reactionary groups http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2021/01/15/the-openweb-is-a-space-for-both-progressives-and-reactionary-groups/
https://thenextweb.com/google/2019/06/14/youtube-recommendations-toxic-algorithm-google-ai/ this is the shit pile most people choose when they moved off the #openweb and into the #dotcons to bow down to the #deathcult with every click and share. On the #siloes we worship human and natural destruction with every post we are the evil, we are the death, we are responsible.
It should not be this way #OMN
#dotcons and #deathcult are the same path and what keeps it in place #stupidindividualism which is in a amplification feedback loop with #dotcons and born from our 40 years worship of the #deathcult the solution is for powerful groups of us to stepaway to #openweb feedback loops being piped by the #4opens

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.
