It's such a learning experience working on the #MoodleNet project with @dajbelshaw, with an open-by-default approach, which isn't limited to the code - we're involving the #community in the whole process of "how the sauce is made".
Here for example are some diagrams of 3 possible approaches to building the #platform architecture:

"Our reporters will look into:
- How disasters disproportionately impact the most vulnerable and what can be done to respond and rebuild in a just and equitable way
- How communities can prevent "disaster capitalists" (those who seek to profit through rebuilding/recovery efforts) from preying on various populations in the aftermath of a crisis"
Cool, Shareable is working on a podcast called Disaster Collectivism. (As contrasted with disaster capitalism.)
Definitely an interesting topic. I was posting about this a bit ago, in reference to Rebecca Solnit's book A Paradise Made In Hell.
I'm looking forward to seeing how the podcast covers the topic.
I'm an advocate of self-hosting, but I also think supporting a form of "delegated identity" would be more inclusive and slightly more user-friendly (like for example OpenID did, where you could configure your personal domain name to indicate what OpenID provider you're using, and can switch at any time) so users can both self-host and move their identity between providers
If you ask TBL what Web 3.0 is, he'll say it's about sharing data rather than documents or apps representing that data. That never really gained mainstream excitement (rather a slow but sure growth), but it'd certainly be part of your concept of Web 3.0.
And his formulation of that is certainly a part of ActivityPub.
But I don't know what'll gain adoption next, yet I will be throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.
"Be unclassifiable. Sticking a label on a human being transforms them, distorts them, reduces them, alters their essence. To define is to imprison."
"Sé inclasificable. Quien pega una etiqueta en un ser humano lo transforma, lo falsea, lo reduce, altera su esencia. Definir es enjaular."
Hi #SocialCoop, I'm a PhD student in computer science (doing programming languages research) and some kind of libertarian socialist. I've been living in #Paris for almost a year, but I'm moving back to #Boston soon. I'm new to participating in cooperatives, but have some background in labor activism and organizing.
tech coops, community Show more
Many #coop success stories I've read about seem to be about taking root in a community and meeting needs that aren't going away anytime soon: food, houses, childcare, etc.
Can #techcoops ever follow that model? Most tech work uses ephemeral tools to meet transient needs, and tech firms are rootless by default. Are there any meaningful generalizations we can draw from the exceptions?
