A post from a few years ago.
http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2021/03/05/at-the-omn-we-have-a-number-of-openweb-tools-for-you-to-use there are meany projects hosting #openweb tools for you.
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
