One of the main problems we face is that people like certainty. Why is this deeply destructive? Because "consensus" are hard to manifest and always compromised The pushing for "clarity" (that is my view is right) rips the fragile consensus (all society are based on) apart. Its confusing that people CANNOT see this process, but they can't. Ideas?
We have to stop doing individualist tools and start doing universalist tools. This is such an obvious statement that it is shocking that the majority of people are going to misunderstand this #OMN

@sl007 or #indymediaback roll-out is going slow, but its moving :) took a long time to work out who were the activertypub actors on the site. We ended up as features and newswire with (optional) user accounts aggregating into the newswire with RSS. Building community is different to pushing individualism, good to experience the issues first hand but takes a long time to work though.

So disappointed in Mozilla recently. Their response to the Google antitrust case was unforgivable, in my opinion.
I worked for the Foundation 2012-15, having mostly an incredible time with super-talented people.
However, in the last five years, and especially since Mitchell Baker took over as CEO of the Corporation again, Mozilla has lost its way. I was talking to someone who left there earlier this year who said it's turned into a kind of 'court' with those in favour and those not 😕
However, those criticising Mozilla should be talking about realistic alternatives. Especially if they themselves have a history of peddling vapourware.
