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.
Flat on wood surface with only ceramic and paper around, woke me up.

"We are the product - from now on the big social space is called "failbook""
From 7 years ago it was obvious to me that #failbook was going to be a big social/tech problem. It actually turned to poison sooner than i thought.

What other #4opens 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 #p2p left agenders and would help to create "bridgeing" between a horizontal grouping.
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.

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