I am a programmer in New Jersey. I have been on federated social networks since 2013, and am really into the cooperative model. I am into mathematics, anime, free/open source video games, and personality typology, and generally just like meeting new people online. Hope to strike a conversation with some friendly people here!

"Twitter announced a pair of big upcoming features today: the ability for users to charge their followers for access to additional content, and the ability to create and join groups based around specific interests."

I really love YASOS. It feels like how objects *should* be done in and not just bolted on.

I have reduced my theses to ten key points which differentiate techno-anarchism from otherwise traditional left-wing anarchism: freehacker.neocities.org/stati

It is a mistake to say, "this is a small movement, they only exist on the internet, they know nothing about practical organizing. We do not need to pay attention to these people or argue with them." In fact, it is only necessary for a small group to have effective propaganda which is capable of converting a larger group of people who do have practical organizing experience. My understanding is that communalism never had a large following until Ocalan was converted.

Then again, Max Nettlau identified with communism and revived the term . However I get the impression this was highly heterodox even in his own time, and today I don't hear any anarcho-communists who associate with this term whatsoever.

Of course there have been partisans/sectarians on the individualist/mutualist side, but I am just speaking proportionally. I'm not sure if this trend is symptomatic of platformism, or is about anarcho-communists in general.

It seems that the advocates of "Anarchism without Adjectives" are more often collectivists (i.e. transitional period before communism) reaching out to communists, or individualists/mutualists reaching out to social anarchists. The partisans are more often the anarcho-communists who insist that anarchism will fail to take hold without the immediate implementation of communism.

Without spoilers, are the mysteries in Utena ever revealed? Like, about why all of this is happening?

Oh look, I found a subreddit /r/AntiDengism. Not too active but the kind of community I've been looking for.
