It's now hard to get an easy view of the death of #indymedia as a lot of the most shitty behaver was taken offline as a part of the ripping that tore the project apart. This is a problem that we strongly need to mediate when implementing "individualistic" rights/workflows. We need to keep metadata flows intact to build trust and history this raises questions on the balance between privacy and transparency.
Good (non-neutral) write up of the #death of #indymedia https://sheffield.indymedia.org.uk/2011/04/478397.html we need to not repeat this mess for #indymediaback
How do movement die. Some #indymedia crew trying to unblock the ossification and growing open/closed conflict https://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/nottinghamshire/2008/02/391385.html
The start of the end for #indymedia with the project splitting into open/closed and the growing intolerances on both sides https://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2008/02/391384.html
What should #indymediaback look like?
This gives a good timeline from the mess in the USA https://video-player.buzzfeed.com/embed?transcoder_path=%2Fhive-binaries%2Fbinaries%2F35f37464450f494ab21fe5b9bf7c85d6%2FImpeachment_2.0_2_9-1_00_PM_-_2_00_PM-impeachment_2_day_1_long_clip-2021-02-09.mp4
Chile: Police Station in Santiago Attacked with Molotovs
looking at the current site although Peertube can work well it is sometimes laggy, and people have got used to the video playing in 1-2 seconds, if they don't see it they assume something is wrong unless they *really* want to watch it (and there is so much competing for attention nowadays) - even YouTube loses viewers when their servers lag (which can happen quite often)
the blogpost explains #4Opens well enough, I think what is needed are more examples of sites using these principles and maybe also to get these into other sites that aren't single political campaigns but "fun" sites too for sharing art, music, entertainment videos etc (working on PeerTube might be a way of doing this)
The #geekproblem is coding for Serenity/security/certainty where it does not exist - this is the root to the withering tree of digital fascism.
It's anti-human not surprisingly.
This is human, all to human.
The project #OMN we are building from the grassroots up as have little hope from the progressive top down crew to do anything meaningful on this front.
Its democracy or widespread death and despair...in the digital era you can't run democracy without the #4opens so this has to be at the root of our garden of ideas.
How would you edit the #4opens to make it more understandable for outreach http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/projects/4opens/
