I've been on Mastodon over at
social.weho.st/@dazinism
I'm based in the UK and into food, land, tech and people collaborating to manage them.
I'm involved in a few projects -

ourfieldproject.org/ 40 people using online tools to collaborate managing a field

travellingtoolbox.org.uk/ is a mobile hackspace/workshop set up to help environmental & community projects build & fix tools and infrastructure

farmhack.org/wiki/soilhack-wik Soilhack is a peer 2 peer learning network

Mastodon will be the first communications medium to enable the publishing of public lists of offers and needs (and announcements). The primary goal of this is low budget crisis response, as the processing software runs on a Raspberry Pi model 3. The test is now live:

Together with a group of Berlin based artists, students, and event organizers we want to open a Berlin instance of the new federated event platform Mobilizon @mobilizon (part of @fediverse) and get people out of the Facebook Events. We are looking for people to help us with the installation, maintenance, code of conduct etc.

Welcome the #HedgeDoc account :)

We were formally known as #CodiMD, but due to some name conflicts, we decided to give ourselves a new name and a much cuter logo.

Who wants an old document when they can have a hedgehog?

You can read a bit more about it on our new history page: hedgedoc.org/history/

a fashion student reached out to me for tips on making #kombucha #leather , and after a while she sent me this amazing creation! She's not on fedi, she's JJINPERTH on Insta - btw if you want to get in on this #vegan leather action I have a tutorial here: https://chrisbeckstrom.com/tutorials/making_kombucha_leather/

Ahoy! #ZincCoop is considering offering a bi-weekly co-learning session where we focus on:

A) Front-end development (JS, CSS, Web Components)
B) Back-end development (Rails, SRE stuff)
or
C) Tech Writing + Documentation (Code docs, user guides, etc)

Which would you attend?

The tallest tree in Wales had been damaged by a storm and was supposed to be cut down, but a better solution was found. Natural Resource Wales, which was in charge of the site, ordered artist Simon O'Rourke to cut down the tree. He thought of a giant hand, symbolising a giant, and the tree's last attempt to reach the sky.

summary of social.coop strategy summits 

Is this super confusing? I just threw our notes from the strategy summits into a visual mind map... but it's not as helpful as i thought it would be...

part of it is the software and not being able to make it look pretty... if that's the only issue i can give it another go with other software but... maybe it's just not meant to be visually laid out like this? Maybe it'd be better as a prezi?

People have to govern their own online communities. There isn't really an alternative to this other than forms of arbitrary tyranny. So the problem then becomes one of how to create small, maintainable systems where there are sufficient tools to enable self-governance.

Since there is increasingly little difference between online and offline this is a general societal project.

Not always easy to understand how our data are used for political purposes...

@Info_Activism@twitter.com just did a short video that clarifies it all: vimeo.com/469701415

Another interesting interview with Taiwans non-binary minister of digital / participation. This one is exploring the way the Taiwanese tech facilitated open government response helped them get on top of covid while only suffering 7 deaths.

Today Zoom reached a settlement with the FTC to close its security holes and protect its users better.

Do we trust our intimate conversations with doctors, colleagues, friends and family to this company?

Wouldn't it be good to join an online meeting platform that you can trust? That is owned by users and workers? That is not analysing user behaviour?

Did you check out ? Online meetings with privacy first.

Great to stumble across policykit.org - adding democratic governance features within software for communities, based on principles from Elinor Ostrom.

It's the same approach we are taking with @karrot.

Haven't read the paper yet...

Excited to have our submission to the "Sharing & Cooperativism: Designing For Economies" workshop at NordiCHI 2020 accepted!

Not sure how it works really, but we're interested to engage with HCI (Human Computer Interaction) researchers about the intersection of grassroots resource saving initiatives, open source software, and democratic governance.

I'm not in academia but keen to try and support the bridge between theory and practise.
