Dual inheritance theory:

Human behavior is a product of two different and interacting evolutionary processes, genetic evolution and cultural evolution. Genes and culture continually interact in a feedback loop, changes in genes can lead to changes in culture which can then influence genetic selection, and vice versa.

One of the theory's central claims is that culture evolves partly through a Darwinian selection process.

சொல்லாமல் கரைந்து ஓடும் காலம்...
அதை கையோடு கட்டி வைக்க தாகம்..
கடிகார முல்லின் மீது கோபம்..
இந்த நொடியோடு உலகம் உறைய ஏக்கம்..

Actually I think the problems of privacy and accountability become easier in the decentralized situation. It's a bit like being judged in a court of peers, rather than by some completely foreign entity who has no concept of the context of your actions.
Interesting idea that the GDPR might apply pressure towards decentralization and that silos might be less motivated to hold data in a centralized way. I'm highly skeptical that's how it will work out though, because it would require fundamental business model change.
Cyclists in the tropics should have a liminal alignment during summer - its too hot during daytime for a long drive. But temperatures are reasonable during dawn and dusk, making cycling enjoyable. During night, the temperatures are good, but since thieves and highwaymen have chaotic alignment and are more active during night, it is unsafe.

Remember that time when folks were asking about "Federated Instagram"?

Well... does this count?

"Fontina is intended to be an ActivityPub-compliant, federated, photo-sharing-based social network."


வானத்தில் பறக்கும் பஞ்சவர்ண கிளியின் மீது அதீத காதல்..
அது என் தோலில் வந்து அமரவில்லையே என நான் ஏங்கவுமில்லை..
என்றும் என்னோடே இருக்கவேண்டும் என எண்ணியதுமில்லை..
அதை காதலிப்பதால் அதை பறக்கவிடுகிறேன்

How to build a new world in the shell of the old. Solidarity economy and dual power.

"As hierarchical society gives way to genuine democracy, it is the institutions we organise and experiment with today that will
become the replacements."

To defeat capitalism requires a broad change in the economy and culture and a withdrawal of participation in the old system. Such a change can't happen via isolated single issue campaigns or a retreat into identitarian bunkers.
