The question all people who are interested in social change need to ask is at the level you are working at what do you actually have affective power over - its beyond pointless to use what little power you have trying to change things you have no power to affect. Focus on what actually has an impact on the level you are working at #OMN
The swamp-to-industry pipeline was greased in the final hours of the Trump regime, when Trump signed an executive order rescinding Obama's rule that banned administration officials from immediately joining lobbying firms.
The #OMN is a standards based political software framework to build #KISS and #4opens grassroots semantic web of trust links and flows. We do this by outlining a human understandable workflow and then build radical real world apps from this. We are agnostic on the underlighing technology and programming as long as it is #4opens based.

It seems to me that as a user of the fediverse, I will end up creating multiple accounts across services/servers (eg. Mastodon, pixelfed, matrix, etc...). This works, but i would prefer to have a single identity that could be used across services rather then many identities.
Is there any way to do this? Currently I use keybase/gpg for managing my online identities (going to switch to #keyoxide when I get some time), but this doesn't solve the issue. Wdyt?
This youtube play list from #visionontv is worth a look to see a snapshot of #openweb history from a #NGO prospective. Am now curease what happened to all these projects https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FcxjaxjZXE&list=PLTGrPEmtUkeNj4_uKfQOPRrCCt9q_KVxr&index=1
Where are these people now?
Mozilla exists to normalise surveillance capitalism. Don’t @ me.
Interesting look at a #4opens project https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?oldid=409315229 notice ""Strict scrutiny" means that any measures instituted for security must address a compelling community interest, and must be narrowly tailored to achieve that objective and no other. " We have come a long way from this with our #encryptionsist agenders.
Its interesting to think that many radical tech projects are reactionary from a political point of view, the tech world has changed a long way over the last 10 years to get to this righting agender... the #openweb was ones a progressive force... pretty much everything now is conservative or #NGO at best. How to reboot the original progressive #openweb is an interesting challenge now.
If you have some extra $$$ don't fuck around and support @riseup the OG's of autonomous tech collectives, making email and other services available to comrades for over 20 fuckin years
To be fully human is to be empowered to live a meaningful life in society. To be sub-human is to live a powerless life outside of society. We are social creators that make our own meaning with this power.
The ONLY important question is how power is shared inside society - all political ideology are based on an understanding of this.
Looking at social power today we find it in metadata. There are 4 views on who should hold this data:
@rysiek @briar Installed and played with Briar on a couple of my devices, I love the concept and networking. UX has a ways to go and the inability to send files or use "mailboxes" feels like the biggest limitation currently. That said, its way closer to my "dream app" I envisioned years ago. Keep up the good work, I'm impressed!
Political and tech - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity
