Extinction for the big citys... am not sure people will allow that to happen. Likely to get very messy, thus its inevitable that we have some form or war economy - fascist/socialist etc. The idea of small experiments is a good one but it wont work for 95% of the city people. Still good to support that as a side stream.

Next 20 years you are looking at shifting the economy to a war time footing to deal with climate change. State Socialism is a outcome, horrific fascism another. I don't think the is a role for liberal democracy for the next few generations. Currently we have non of the technology infrastructure for a tech utopia. Green solutions do not scale to human social levels, ecological political views are not likely to have a good "social" affect on the mega city's.

The plan to get people to post good fluff/spiky outreach videos to celebrate/connect activist history to the current groups is not working sadly, the image is of the viewing figures for the last 48hours, just 12 views for one of the videos. If you want to help make this move if you post the video links, please share URL were they are so others can comment and like. if we don't connect this new generation of activists to there history then they will all to easey fall for liberal/capitalist "solutions" that shifts the focus and the change that's needed.

I wish the spiky/anarchists would slow down the flow of piss on and do something useful themselves, its a bad look pissing on social change from outside. As far as i can see activism has been a fuckup since ocuppy etc. Past time the spikeys did something other than talk, says the man sailing away on a lifeboat ;)

Now keep it focused :)

The neo-liberals like puting on fresh faces "He also proposed a tax amnesty and a 5% flat tax for big business which could be increased "in dialogue with them and if everyone agrees"" the lot of um.

The big silo companies are not as unassailable as they may appear. Facebook only makes a couple of dollars in profit per user per year and so relies heavily upon having billions of users.

The thin profit margin means that if their user count was to fall even by a small amount then they might go from profit to loss quite quickly. This is also why they can't afford to have many human moderators and have to rely heavily upon AI.

If there is any rabbit that Facebook can pull out of the hat it will be something like being able to persuade enough users to act as additional unpaid volunteer moderators.

♲ ⚠️ Heads-up: the #EU is considering ways to regulate software that runs on radio-enabled devices due concerns about interferences.
Some of their solutions could significantly harm #postmarketOS, but also related project such as #UBports, #LineageOS and #Replicant (among others).

The initiative is now seeking feedback, don't hesitate to send them yours! It seems that Non-eu citizens can contribute as well. There's not much time left, so act quickly!…

Founded on #4opens, motivated by the #PGA hallmarks and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its an unfettered space for Activists and groups to communicate via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
