I am centrist in that I think the angry, burny anarchists and the hopeful, sunshine anarchist both make good points.

Today I installed the #Manyverse app from #FDroid - it is a social network based on #SecureScuttleButt or rather a mobile frontend for the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol. Many concepts are difficult to grasp, as it's very different from the Fediverse - you don't need a server in the first place. It seems rudimentary but very promising since it can work off the grid, via Bluetooth or local network. There are no URLs for users neither for messages. Reminds of #Briar in many ways.

The was a bang/explosion last night, i thought kids were shooting the boat with a airgun, got up to snif/look around to see if it might be a electrical short. Found nothing so went back to bed. In the morning i noticed that a 9v battery had exploded, was not plugged into any thing.

@strypey by the way, the import in #PeerTube supports over 500 siloted sites, since it relies on the wonderful youtube-dl

@bob are you in london? Am interested in trying out your project on a old laptop at if your up for tea and geekery.

"We are the product - from now on the big social space is called "failbook""

From 7 years ago it was obvious to me that was going to be a big social/tech problem. It actually turned to poison sooner than i thought.

geeks are pushing everything that is crossover left/right with no connection to any thinking outside that they live in. The is a diversity out there you know :)

@bob @aral what do you think on this subject and project?

Would this work pure non server based crossover mainstream login?

The needs a workable non server based single login. Both and google gain advantage from there dominant closed tecnolagy. it's a cross over mainsteam project.

What other options are the currently to acheve this, I need to start to push something soon. Would be good to have a clear understaning first.

Would think this issue would be core to left agenders and would help to create "bridgeing" between a horizontal grouping.

Kinda sums up what remains of the and the remaining who have not thought this through. Please don't be one of these.

As a society we swing to the right as climate chaos builds and liberalism fundamentally breaks. Or to the left and we work towards a better world through the climate chaos. In both cases the liberal consensus has no place in good or bad outcomes, lets see which way our society swings. Am sailing away on a lifeboat if you wona see howto :

History tells us that we need our own distribution and this core to real outreach and effectiveness will not find at this event.

The is a wilfully hopeless in this group of people focus on . Part of a series of events that take space and obscure outcome. Rinse and repeat.

The are some good content being produced by alt media groups, but the tech focus is little more than wonabe mainstream.

Both sad and bad.

@fool The ugly reality is that a lot of proprietary software development is just a charade so that some executive can get paid or some venture capital can exit with a locked in customer base. This is why in a lot of such development there's zero attention to security or code quality. It's why "enterprise" stuff is always a buggy unreliable mess.

Founded on #4opens and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its a safe space for Campaigning and NGO groups to access their members via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
