There's a discussion going on about whether the Fediverse should set up a governance structure to decide its future

I think that the Fediverse should be governed as a co-operative ! I don't think it makes sense to govern a decentralised network with a centralised hierarchy ?

We made a game! Over the weekend I participated in the Global Game Jam and we made a chess-like arcade game where your pieces move semi-automatically and your goal is to protect an unpredictable king

We made it y’all! The fediverse is working great and all of the Facebook empire is 404ing right now

strong :fediverse:

I tried writing a haiku

The eagle is on the run!

I think that the lack of peer governance in the Fediverse is a vulnerability for self-serving interests and for "market poisoning" or enclosure

I pinned a toot that's important to me. It links to a thread about governance in the Fediverse (socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/). To protect a commons like the Fediverse, it's paramount that governance is completed by the community on a direct basis. This is not the same thing as *no* governance. We have to self-organise!

There is an open letter calling for the resignation of Eugen Rochko (Gargron) from Mastodon development: seedy.xyz/posts/0005-open-lett

The letter mentions some technical disagreements and the manner in which they've been handled, but most concerningly to me efforts to make Mastodon "marketable" to venture capitalists which may amount to nothing short of the enclosure of our common space

in the concept of Development:

“The lead runners show the way; they are at the forefront of social evolution, indicating a common destination even for countries which had highly diverse trajectories in the past. Many different histories merge into one ‘master history’ ... the imagined time is linear, only allowing for progressing or regressing” (Wolfgang Sachs)

And yet we know the destination of this 'master history' already! This is an oppressive pretension and it is poison!

"A society composed of exiles is literally an exiled society - exiled from the roots of human consociation in care and nurture"

-- Murray Bookchin (from The Ecology of Freedom)

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.
