@demonshreder self-organization doesn't mean there shouldn't be any process or discipline. We should be able to define a process and discipline for ourselves and our actions be accountable to each other.

If we proceed without such guidelines as a group of loosely bound individuals we all feel separated and our actions will not be in harmony with each other.

A collective cannot last long or move fwd w/o paying attention to individual needs. We need to balance between individual & collective.

@imvelu ஆம் நாங்க வேலு தான்.

😉😉

Social, educational, personal problems are never ever solved by both addiction and surveillance or even by parental control. But with liberty and education.

For those who think, privacy has no value while compared to parental protection instinct, please see black mirror 4 arkangel episode. It has painted how mass technocratic solutions exploiting and capitalizing uncertainty, fear, protective instincts, can not have the ability to solve both the problems, but only aggravate and if can separate the relations. Surveillance is not the solution for addiction or for anything that sounds disturbing.

@prassee @tshrinivasan Our motive should also not be the one big instance. If we do that we are going against the very principle of decentralized federation itself. A lot of instance admins are also conscious about and they encourage others to setup new instances to connect.

We can set a cap on number of users on the instance.

The objective here is that we control our online communication and own our data.

1. Local Timeline எனப்து நீங்கள் எந்த சர்வரில் கணக்கை வைத்துள்ளீர்களோ, அந்த சர்வரில் இருக்கும் நபர்களின் Public பதிவுகளை காணும் இடம்.
2. Federated Timeline என்பது அந்த சர்வர் வேறு எந்தெந்த சர்வகளோடெல்லாம் இணைந்த்துள்ளதோ அவைகளில் இருந்தும் வரும் Public பதிவுகளை காணும் இடம். அங்கே பெரும்பாலும் பிறமொழி பதிவுகளைக் காணலாம். தற்சமயம் அது பெரிதளவில் நமக்கு உதவியாக இருக்காது.
3. Home என்பது நீங்கள் யாரை Follow செய்கிறீர்களோ அவர்களிடமிருந்து வருவது.

My friend: I believe in astrology. But the current astrologers are frauds making money.
Me: Uhh... okay (not wanting a fight)
.

Many days later when walking along a road.

Same friend: What do you think about astrology?
Me: Uhh... (Taken aback by the question and looks intently at the on coming traffic and concentrates on crossing the road).

Me to myself: I will have my arguments ready next time you ask that question :D :-/

Using to build a more democratic, inclusive and sustainable digital society - our interview with @francesca_bria@twitter.com, CTO of . fsfe.org/news/2018/news-201807

Today saw again the home documentary, which I don't remember until I saw it once more.

.

Took some statistics. Watching docs alone will not help take action for climate change. It needs a platform for 80% to participate. Moreover, there has to be ways to easily access the resources and information to know about ones local geo-climatic conditions and situation.

@vms20591 aha. location based addressing + content based addressing.

Decentralization and content based addressing goes hand in hand.
