@TankeSkud From my perspectiv the freest market, would be a system where every citisen of a country / the world is able to produce, share and collaborate on making better stuff.
Because if every citisen can produce and collaborate on making stuff, then corporations wont have a monopoly on production / innovation.
Also: Whenever corporations lock innovation away behind copyright, patents and IP, humanity as a whole is slowed down by the profitmotive.
Foldit is a great example of what crowdsourcing is capable of.
Also - A thing that would be amazing:
Create something smiliar to foldit. But let it be about, making computers and their part from the ground up.
Just imagine it - A group of people around the world. Designing and sharing hardware designs for computers, CPU's, RAM, Motherboards etc.
That is what unlimited innovation looks like.
I don't get it (political)
How come that some people are afraid of democracy (because they view it as mob rule, where the individual is ignored).
Yet they don't have a problem with a "free market" where people vote with their money.
Even if money was distributed equally in this market. There would still be a "mob rule" since people eventually gravitate towards the better product (or gets manipulated / tricked into, jumping on the bandwagon).
Vision of the future
The future I hope for:
1. Protocols like DAT, IPFS, Bittorrent, webtorrent and ActivityPub makes the internet more distributed and resilient to censorship.
2. People start making their own small and local servers (like a piratebox).
3. People make self-replicating 3D printers like RepRap, continue to improve the design and share it amongst everyone.
Aaron Epstein is a 90 year old who lives a couple miles from me in North Hollywood. He's been an AT&T customer since 1960 and holy shit, is he ever *done with their shit*.
Epstein gets 3mbps (nominal)/1.5 mbps (actual) from AT&T, in the heart of the entertainment industry's company town, where the studios are serviced by a 100gb fiber loop built at public expense (it passes under my house's foundation slab).
Expanding the scope of protections around #patents, #copyrights, #trademarks and trade secrets does not lead necessarily to #innovation and competition, but to stronger monopolies. The @fsfe urges the Commission to consider whether EU companies will really benefit under these regulatory tools, and how many would be pushed out of markets.
It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:
boosts welcome, thanks.
This person made a complete Godzilla movie playing all the parts himself. Including Godzilla. Do I win the internets? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0NQX6bSp4A
imagine an internet that was ran like a utility. one where it was the norm to run a little box server at your home that you run your services on (email, mastodon, file storage, etc), and there was a whole industry of unionized repair people who would come to your house and fix up your custom home server to make sure it stays safe and is working to your needs
Just a little vent... Why is that so many left/socialist "things" (groups, media, podcasts etc) insist that the way to engage with them is "through our facebook group"? Not something here on the fediverse, not an RSS feed, not an email address... No, we need to engage through one of the worst examples of the capitalist world when all we want to do is to smash it. </vent>
perusing the Fedco seed catalog and found the 4 freedoms for free software repurposed for seeds!
"OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) opposes intellectual property (IP) provisions
that restrict what OSSI has identified as the four seed freedoms:
1. The freedom to save or grow seed for replanting or any other purpose.
2. The freedom to share, trade, or sell seed to others.
3. The freedom to trial and study seed and to share or publish information about it.
4. The freedom to select or adapt the seed, make crosses with it, or use it to breed new lines and varieties."
