"It easy to keep crossing wires with "media" vs. personal. Media _should_ be open, with clear sources, except when protecting them. Whereas personal data should default to private" from the #openweb
@msaunders humm composting metaphors...
I feel like Mozilla keeps introducing all of these proprietary network services aimed at privacy minded folks while also not realizing their services are less private than the self-hostable libre alternatives that people concerned about privacy already use.
They also keep trying to bake these "features" into their browser which leads to more telemetry, which leads to privacy minded folks forking Firefox and stripping out the telemetry and ads for Mozilla services.
All movements come from seeds growing in rich compost. Have nurtured quite a few over my time. Rebooting grassroots media could easily/should sprout and people walking away from the #dotcons is the time. But if we keep spreading shit on each other the smell is not inviting... now a nice bed of compost is what is needed to seed a radical movement - what is shit good for ;) spades we need spades.
What are the hashtags? #dotcoms were were digital would would make you rich. To #dotcons were it is all a con and will kill billions due to climate chaos and political nastyness over the next 100 years. Why the hashtags? We as communerty decided to abandon the #geekproblem #openweb and embrace this mess. Time to pick up a spade and compost this crap, were next?

#Tor and #i2p can help us cut through the #corporateState #narratives. Even if we don't use Tor. Using services like #Searx for #webSearching and #invidious for #videoAccess we can help to break the existing power structure.
How we use #technology affects us.
Smarter use of tech can get us there faster.
