How do you see your life? This is both a personal/social and tech answer please.

I would say its more a choice between nasty viscous or just plan nasty :)

With opening up the possibility of positive environmental and social change. The big challange is to get individuals to move past the eco feel good and into the hard social issues were the real power for destruction/creativity lies.

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.

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.

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.
