Pinned toot

Hello social.coop people,

I'm Alfonso, connecting from the Pyrenees, the mountains in the south of France.

I'm a developer and architect interested in to build free digital ecosystem attached to territories.

Here in the Pyrenees, i've co-founded Lab Place, a maker and co-working space in a little village lab.place

I also take part in the international network Civicwise civicwise.org

a project partially free-open source is like a food partially vegetarian....

Stumbled upon Broot the other day and finally took it for a spin just now. What a great tool for inspecting directory trees!

We seek alternatives for unethical, black-box, proprietary software and online platforms. Someone in our free software forum, asked whether there is an alternative for a platform like Dubsmash / Musically which went viral last year.

https://discuss.fsftn.org/t/alternative-for-dubsmash-and-musically/1020

I was personally not in favour of writing an FOSS alternative for every X,Y,Z primarily because I don't see them as an alternative. For me alternative means not to be the replacement of something in place of the other thing. For the alternative means, alternative in it's fundamental sense.

A FOSS alternative that mimics all behaviours of a toxic proprietary software is not an alternative at all. It's just alternative in technical sense and not an alternative in it's behavioural sense. These toxic behaviours are called anti-features.

An FOSS alternative should not overwhelm us, should help us use less with more focus and less time consuming thus not stealing our attention, should not promote the Fear of Missing Out. If a FOSS application or platform has anti-features, it is not an heathy alternative.

If Fediverse overwhelm us with infinite information feed, seeks our attention often, then that's not an healthy alternative. The apps and their interfaces shapes our behaviour.

Como parece que hay gente migrando de instancia y andan perdidos y como hace poco que migré de una instancia a otra, los pasos son sencillos:

1. Seleccionar a qué instancia quieres migrar: leer las condiciones y todas esas cosas.
2. Desde la cuenta original hacer una exportación de cuenta.
3. Desde la cuenta destinataria hacer una importación de cuenta.
4. Si no han llegado todos los seguidores y seguidos, descargar los ficheros csv de la instancia original e importarlos en la nueva.

¿Cómo migrar una redacción al software libre? Vi circular un interesante artículo europeo sobre un periódico en India que incorporó #Scribus #Inkscape #GIMP y #LibreOffice. Más allá de que siempre es bueno conocer iniciativas, tiene otro gusto compartir experiencias cercanas, con prácticas cooperativas y posibilidades de consulta. Acá un perfil que se hizo desde @radarlibre a la Cooperativa La Masa y su periódico #ElEslabón

"Proposing 'venture communism' as a new model for workers’ self-organization, Kleiner spins Marx and Engels’ seminal Manifesto of the Communist Party into the age of the internet. As a peer-to-peer model, venture communism allocates capital that is critically needed to accomplish what capitalism cannot: the ongoing proliferation of free culture and free networks." Part of The Telekommunist Manifesto by Dmytri Kleiner telekommunisten.net/the-teleko

Marina Garcés: "La confianza no puede ser ciega. Es una relación con lo que no sabemos. Confiar no es desentenderse de las consecuencias de lo que hacemos o de lo que pasa, sino todo lo contrario. Actualmente, ante los miedos que se han apoderado del futuro, renace esa vieja idea de que algo nos salvará, en este caso la tecnología." retina.elpais.com/retina/2019/

1. España, en los años 80, se convirtió en el mayor consumidor de heroina de Europa Occidental. Un país que venía del final de la dictadura y comienzo de la transición con una enorme agitación en la calle. Nada de lo ocurrido se debió a la casualidad. ¿Fue la heroína un instrumento de desmovilización social? Son muchos los datos que apuntan a ello. #HiloDrogas
