The is a uuspoken that we need to talk about. If you see as human2human or data2data in the first scaling issues are inherently a good virtue. The second you would be right scaling is an issue, but the thinking is anti human and is the one pushed by our we are all a part of thus a problem that we dont acturly wont to solve in projects. Talk to a geek today about this.

"Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it" Marx

Scuttlebutt.nz is an interesting project, I use it, but it is not and likely never will be good for outreach beyond it's on the edge of "changing it" vs "philosophers" balance of the marx quote. Lets see how it flowers.

Hundreds of alt tech projects wither at the vine, a very few flower. Thinking about this, a pretty universally accepted way of judging what might flower and what will wither, the other people call it open source development etc. Problem terms a teenage mix of arrogance and ignorance that is universal and a self interested pushing of greed over human need. Basic stuff that it's good to have an opinion on, definitely be a bad thing not to have an opinion on ;)
