I was looking around for free (as in freedom) social networks and I'm happy to see #mastodon 😃
Now planning to make the (probably) first #Turkish mastodon :-)
I also wish the environmental movement would celebrate its victories instead of being all-negative all the time.
Like, this: "Deforestation declined a whopping 70% from 2004 to 2012. It has risen modestly since then but remains at one-quarter its 2004 peak."
That's an amazing achievement! Why have I never heard about it? Why aren't we all talking more about what strategies worked so well from 2004-2012 and how to replicate them elsewhere?
Is there a way to block a user in #riot.im ? A bot is inviting me to a room. Once I reject it, it invites again.
The lack of revolutionary potential in most existing co-ops is one of the many reasons why cooperative/collective economic projects should already incorporate an inherently anarchist approach at the founding level, and options for long-term horizontal scalability via federation with politically & structurally compatible projects shouldn't be an afterthought.
Worker co-ops shouldn't be isolated. Instead, they should have the clear potential to be integral parts of a bottom-up needs-based economy.
The Mastodon GitHub repo currently has 3 open issues that could help moderators moderate better:
- Add a moderation API: let third-party devs build better tools for moderation, much like the various mobile clients. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/8580
- Add Locked account state: let mods to temporarily lock accounts (like a forum ban) without kicking the user out. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/7273
- Add public info about number of mods/instance: let people find instances with more mods/user. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/8557
Yesterday the Italian minister of foreign affairs Matteo Salvini (who's also the leader of the xenophobic Lega Nord party) shared a short, but significant tweet: "Tanti nemici, tanto onore" (EN: "The more enemies, the more honor"). To witness a minister of the Republic tweeting a fascist slogan on the anniversary of Mussolini's birth marks a new low in the recent history of Italy: it means the neo-fascists feel powerful enough to drop their masks and roam the streets in broad daylight.
Me and two of my close friends planning to do work together as a #collective/#coop. I'm a software developer, one of us is skilled in graphic #design and #videoactivism, the other has skills in #textile design. Also our shared interest is #cycling :-)
We decided to do commercial work to finance our #political/#social projects in a sustainable way.
Do you know any other? We try to learn from others' experience.
Young people are losing out in an uncertain, changing world of work – but #coops are throwing them a lifeline. Find out how in this report from @CICOPA https://t.co/X5wbuI6jv5 https://twitter.com/coopnews/status/1007548678343745536/photo/1
I'm using #microg version of #lineageos with #fdroid. I just noticed there are many apps I did not install in my "installed apps" list in #f-droid. I cannot see those in "apps" list in settings. Also not listed in system apps. Do I have to worry?
