I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.
Home office bonus: I can eat sardines right before a meeting and @Danielle doesn't have to smell them. 🐟
Turns out a lot of what's in my mind is pretty silly. Maybe I shouldn't write these things down.
Fascinating talk from @OCCRP about journalism and censorship at Mozfest. Time to learn more about their work!
A little late on this (I already spoke) but I'm on the live Community Call for Code for Science & Society. You can watch my face (and listen to interesting people who are not me) here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zXTQjQbReo
Live notes (including a summary of what I talked about and Q&A) here: https://public.etherpad-mozilla.org/p/CSS-community-call-September-7-2018
Been reading the Age of Anger, after finding the authors article on modern masculinity extremely on point https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/mar/17/the-crisis-in-modern-masculinity. So far a very interesting history of anger and hierarchy.
"the German thinker Max Stirner argued ... that the impersonal rationality of power and government had disguised itself in the emollient language of freedom and equality, and the individual, ostensible liberated from traditional bods, had been freshly enslaved by the modern state."
True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness. True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.
