It’s now hard to get an easy view of the death of #indymedia as a lot of the most shitty behaver was taken offline as a part of the ripping that tore the project apart. For the #OMN this is a problem that we strongly need to mediate when implementing “individualistic” rights/workflows. We need to keep metadata flows intact to build trust and history. This challenge raises questions on the balance between privacy and transparency.
The big #fedivers is run in the voluntarist economic model of patron and donations to cover basic costs. The technical federation allows this to happen at a humane scale. This was how #indymedia was run for 10 years – not without stresses that we do need to mediate. at the #OMN we have seed funding for 3-4 years and looking for sustainability here.
What would a non #mainstreaming movement look like.
* firstly it would have to get past meany #BLOCKS that are now common sense.
My action is to this is to jump back in time to before these blocks solidified and start to build up from there. It's not a bad idea and will likely work if people embrace it.
* Non #mainstreaming tech is SOCIAL/community and needs to step away from the current geek agenders to have real power for social change.
The project #OMN we are building from the grassroots up as have little hope from the progressive top down crew to do anything meaningful on this front.
https://tribunemag.co.uk/2021/02/thatchers-island we hide the changes that 40 years of neo-liberalism made in us all. We lived through a "revolution" a nasty one. This continues and is deeply embedded in us and our instantiations being largely an invisible #deathcult that #XR make visible in their own #fluffy way. Social shovels and compost comes to mind #OMN as a way out of this mess.
Thinking about #OMN from 4 years ago
Food for thought.
The #geekproblem is not actually interested in the #openweb as a human value network. Instead, they often feed off the current mess in different unhealthy ways. Feeding off the dying #openweb is bowing down to the #deathcult
Looked at it this way the need for change becomes more obvuse and active carrot and stick work important.
The #OMN is a shovel to compost this inhuman mess.
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.
What we are pushing at the #OMN is x10 to hard for normal people to use. When we outreach meany people come aboard to try and push onto the project 10x harder to use tools than what we push - this is the #geekproblem expecting people to user tools that are x100 times harder to use than the tools the #dotcons offer them for "free"
This destructive behaver has to stop.To have hope of a #openweb reboot., lets try and be human as we have piles of shit to shovel all ready without adding more.

We are setting out to address the "social trust" issue in the roll out of the #OMN projects.
Political and tech - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity
