FOSS' greatest weakness is elitist programmers refusing to make their work accessible to less technically inclined users than themselves.
Commercial software's greatest weakness is its unwillingness to allow technically more inclined users to understand more of what's below the surface.
The greatest obstacle to progress in most areas is "if it ain't broken, don't fix it"

Anyone know of any resources for facilitating introductions to fediverse/open-source tech to anarchist/mutual-aid groups?

Assumption: the world is fucked, see #XR The fluffy crew are not doing anything to change/challenge to save the day for billions of peoples futures, actually most of them are selling us out rather than helping, not saying this group here just “fluffy” in general.
Proposal: do something challenging, cooperation can be messy as well as orderly, this can be a good thing, already posted meany link to the messy “governance” project.
Q. And I also think that “raising the lid” - starting to see and say what is going on - can sometimes start to build a bridge. Sometimes.
A. Bridge building between invisible world views is the hardest thing to do, but it’s also the most productive if the bridge can be held in place. There are strong #BLOCK ing forces.
