#SolarpunkReporting

In 2014, when Sierra Leone was hit by the Ebola outbreak, three local software developers kept the country's infrastructure working by rewriting it to #FLOSS. They saved hundreds of thousands lives when companies like Google and IBM backed off, calling the project too risky.

Apollonius of Tyana
To the monopolisers of corn in Aspendus:

"The earth is the common mother of all, for she is just. You
are unjust, for you have made her only the mother of yourself:
and if you will not cease from acting thus, I will not suffer
you to remain upon her."

My man.

I'm thinking about making a thing called the Data Liberation Society (For People Who Are Tired Of Not Talking About Revolution).

In particular we will focus on actionable things we, dreamers, software developers, data scientists, concerned humans, can do to lay the foundation for revolution and the world to come after revolution.

The centralise the decentralised web summit so far seems to be garbage-in, garbage-out.

I haven't seen one single new idea that makes any sense come out of it, and not one single non-US non-white person say anything about building things for the other 5 billion people who live in poverty and don't use Facebook.

Tired of more of the same, but with NGOs, and aspiring leaders of decentralisation.

Facebook put out a patent application for a face recognition system that will match your face in stores and correlate it with your social media profile to assign you a shopper trust level.

That's some seriously dystopian shit right there.

Amazing story of local, decentralized resilience in Gaza in the face of Israeli blockades using free/libre medical hardware. Literally saving lives by 3D printing stethoscopes, tourniquets, and gears for xray machines, using solar power and plastic recycling. Pretty incredible.

#needhelp

Does anyone know of a site that allows for "radical" #community building?

The kind of site that encourages #composting, #freecycling, helping the houseless, needle exchanges, ride-sharing (or going carless), not calling the police, and other "scary" #communist ideals?

If this site doesn't exist, how can we help you make it exist?

Let's make this happen!

Internet, 2002; claiming that you're over 18 so that websites will let you in.

Internet, 2018: claiming that you're under 16 and in the EU so that websites cannot track your data
