Here is a report on some of the dangers of P2P and decentralized technologies, namely that tools that achieve some of the goals of #decentralization, #privacy, and strong #encryption have been used by far-right racists.

It discusses the challenges when they seek the same tools we want to promote freedom and equality, and the various ways those problems have been dealt with, and specifically covers #Mastodon and #Scuttlebutt and how Mastodon has been fairly successful.

🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

Consumer debt is the lifeblood of our economy. All modern nation states are built on deficit spending. Debt has come to be the central issue of international politics. But nobody seems to know exactly what it is, or how to think about it.

Very good article by @rysiek redecentralize.org/blog/2021/0
"I have participated in many a public forum on Internet governance, and whenever anyone pointed out that social platforms like Facebook need to do more as far as content moderation is concerned, Facebook would complain that it’s difficult in their huge network, since regulation and cultures are so different across the world. While their goal was to stifle further regulation, they were in fact making a very good argument for decentralisation."

The price of not getting stuck in one's ways as one gets older is a constant, painful, reassessment of almost everything.

Join us and our guests live on Small Is Beautiful today (in just under an hour and a half) to talk about ways we can prevent the Googleification of schools. How can we encourage free and open ethical alternatives instead of normalising surveillance capitalism for the next generation?

(Have your webcam/mic/headphones ready if you want to join the stream or ask a question. We’ll give out the studio URL during the stream.)

"So in this way, by reducing the effects of suffering in our lives, we become freer, and less subject to ‘fate’ and unconscious trauma-generating actions, which could be said to be the only actions which are genuinely predetermined, given that if we do not deal with the suffering at source, we are going to be compelled to act it out in some way. "

New post on my blog:
"...we are kept humble and human by the fact that we can never completely escape suffering. What we can do though is to fully accept it, understand the nature of it, and resolve to create as little of it as possible for ourselves and others."

New post on my blog:

"For me, the difference between suffering and trauma is that suffering, when made conscious, can bring depth and ultimately joy. Trauma is an overdose of suffering with no way to deal with it."

We can no longer worship efficiency: from now on antifragility, resilience and diversity must be our new gods.
