Welcome to 2021
@cjd I hope so. Honestly I'm worried about Good Tech(tm) like decentralized software and Signal being given a bad name because right wingers start using it.
Welcome to #YearOfDecentralizaion!
According to this user story, the primary challenges to the #YearOfTheFediverse are:
1a. Hard for users to discover content.
1b. Hard for creators to be discovered.
2a. Hard to federate identity (e.g. single sign-on)
2b. Hard to separate content (e.g. Discord “servers”)
cjd’s original meme is the meme template of “working together” with the captions of “the left” and “the right” working together towards “decentralization”.
I made two additions:
Point out who is NOT working together towards the goal of “decentralization”; intended to be the “useful idiots” on both the left and the right who, in their Hegelian Dialectic of “opposing” each other; are both enabling corporations.
Add an (already-existing) “three-party model” diagram, whose thesis is: The main problem in a naive implementation of either lib-right or lib-left utopias is they always assume many small independent actors but never guarantee this assumption. When power becomes concentrated in large bodies (corporation just means a body i.e. corporeal), then it doesn’t matter whether the bodies are “public” or “private”, everybody gets fucked.
In short, #YearOfDecentralization is key. #YearOfTheFediverse is my New Year’s Resolution, for anyone who will listen (referring to my outreach efforts on twitter/discord/facebook alts, etc.; obviously people here are good).
