Building bridges between social groups who have different ideas about power is a thankless task.
But without bridges, we have the normal outcome of irrelevance and decay or at best struggle with the possibility of war.
Looking back on the timeline if you are interested in understanding the bridge metaphor.
The key strength of this governance model is that its #permissionless in this it mirrors one of the strengths of the #Fediverse you do not have to ask permission to start an instance #justdoit in the same way you start a governance body https://unite.openworlds.info/Open-Media-Network/openwebgovernancebody/wiki/Online-governance- its native to the #openweb out of the box #4opens
Last Thursday we demonstrated #ActivityPub to European & national administrations with a live install & demonstration of #peertube and #mastodon by @how for the European Data Protection Supervisor (which aims to join the fediverse soon!). In case you missed it, here is the recording -> https://conf.tube/videos/watch/e4cc80ba-f44d-4294-8812-e409f221f5ad?start=0s From the first install commands to sharing videos, moderating & comments in a little more than half an hour 🤩
Checking the election results. Conservatives are so far ahead that it would almost be comical if the practical effects weren't as serious.
If you're GRT, or anyone that conservatives dislike (that will include me), then your material conditions are probably going to worsen in the near future. There isn't much left that they can privatize or cut, apart from NHS and maybe national parks, and so the class war is probably going to get uglier.
British politics is a mess, and the nastiest people are in control of the establishment of #deathcult ists.
NFT, tl;dr :
- It's still destroying the planet (the ETH blockchain will be greener (soon?), but it's still dirty AF)
- The elitism of the traditional art world is replaced by the technological elitism of crypto/blockchain and the huge skill barrier to enter
- There's no solution to the problem of (art) theft and counterfeiting, even if it's the primary purpose of NFT
- The (non)durability of the exchange platforms and the fuzziness about the future of the certificates

The social dilemma - for all its #dotcons talking to #dotcons problems says clearly that this problem was created by our "liberals" embracing the #dotcons the social "we" created this mess with our cat picks and what I had for lunch selfies - we feed and pushed into control the monster that is eating humane outcomes. A first step the people who created this mess accept some "responsibility" and dile down their arrogance and ignorance and push up #openweb solutions. Easy, where do we start?
Do you have a WordPress Blog?
Did you know you can connect it to the Fediverse so that people on Mastodon can follow you and comment on your posts?
It works through the WordPress ActivityPub plugin:
(You may also be able to find this by searching for "ActivityPub" in the plugins section of your WordPress blog)
If you have any comments or questions, the plugin's developer is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle
@dumpsterqueer I feel ya. I have a very ambivalent feeling about the Next Generation Internet initiative from the EU for instance.
There's some interesting stuff happening in there, but also a lot of awful bullshit around it. And worst of all, not enough eye for safeguards, more on 'innovation' which is of course corp-speak for money.
you know you're living in a fucking dystopia when the EU starts funding projects that throw around terms like 'disinformation', 'consensus', 'democracy', and *shudder* 'blockchain'
Think this is the 3ed rejection for the FOSS project #indymediaback that has been rejected, and I was very NGO friendly polite. No biting was involved, yet...
"Submitted to foss-north 2021 has been updated.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to accept this session. We
do hope to see you at foss-north 2021 regardless!"
As am sure some of you likely have an idea these events are less #openweb than their outreach texts - just look at who sponsors them if you need to.
Political and tech - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity
