A river that needs crossing political and tech blogs - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity

Seeding video on the #openweb

We are #rebooting the #openweb side of http://visionon.tv project based on https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/wiki in early/middle of April.

The idea is to run this as decentralised as possible, that is to only temporally store the large videos files on the central server and rely much more on seedboxes in peoples homes and business.

Am looking for a few people to help set these up and host them for the first roll-out.

Basically:

* A low power computer (raspberry pie, old laptop, desktop)
* With a big external usb HD
* Running a torrent app configured to pull the video files down and seed them ver RSS from
the visionontv server.
This APP can be rate limited depending on your internet connection to stop your ISP complaining.
Then this is left online and dues its thing, you become a core part of the #openweb and OMN

We have to move nearly 2000 videos with more than 30 million views off the #dotcon and back onto the #openweb

Be a part of this.

Lets look at some alt projects from the perspective of the #4opens - Themediafund

Bronze 2 opens
Silver 3 opens
Gold 4 opens

Themediafund is not a #4opens project (depending on clarification)

Lets look at some alt projects from the perspective of the #4opens - Themediafund

https://themediafund.org

Open data – the site has no visible RSS its likely wordpress so maybe has a hidden feed. Copyright content so the data is closed and locked vier copyright.
1/4 open

Open source – The site is likely wordpress so opensource but everything else is copyright. All the media is stored in #dotcon so not a open. Give them 1/4 open

Open “industrial” standards – Well wordpress is kinda a standard, but they do not openly support RSS, podcasting and all media is vier #dotcon so no.

Open process – The is no visible process (likely hidden bureaucratic open'ish). For tech dev I cannot fined the code anywhere.

 

Escaping the #dotcon worldwide

UPDATE this is in process.
 
Escaping the #dotcon worldwide
 
Todo
Terms of services – based on the #4opens
* Activist – based on PGA hallmarks
* NGO – find a big org and use that’s TOS
 
Copy the mastodon TOS and refocus to the above
 
We need
* Names x2
* Domains x2
 
Then setup Github sites with these names to run the tech side of the project and provide a on-line organizing space.
 
We need a list of outreach orgs and contacts in this likely all ready exists.

MAKING HISTORY

The creation of a data soup of semantic enriched digital items on a redundant federated network around the world.


The WitchesCauldron is a commons based on the 4opens motivated by PGA hallmarks


Simple and human scale KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) to facilitate DIY.


Be part of this federated network built using the tools of the OMN (Open Media Network)

We need projects like the Media Fund as part of a #openweb echo-syteam

We need projects like the Media Fund as part of a #openweb echo-syteam. But they need to get a bit upto date to be relevant, currently they are years in the past in their thinking – this is a #fashernista problem that is made worst by funding agenda’s being many more years in the past.

With the fast moving tech agenda in hand with the #geekproblem we have had more than 10 years of fuckups in this area. We cannot afford many more.

"The Media Fund What is the level of awareness among Facebook users that the platform is shifting ever more towards the favour of bigger corporations?

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/oct/23/facebook-non-promoted-posts-news-feed-new-trial-publishers?CMP=twt_a-media_b-gdnmedia

We need to get honest on this guys like the Media Fund used to run workshops on how to use Facebook for campaigning. While the alt media disintegrated left behind. Now the #openweb is getting close to disintegration while you have been talking about the problem of the mainstream media for the last few years. Yes #failbook was/is a problem especially when #fashernesta activists were pushing it as the solution.

The real current issue is now the openweb tools not year old news about #failbook

Please try to do the right thing

Next 4opens projects

Am working on 3 new projects 2 of which are currently running.

1) #Witchescauldron a grassroots #4opens archiving project

2) Activist and NGO installs of a #4opens twitter project (Mastodon) to help people move off the #dotcon world.

3) OMN has been running for the last year on 10 sites, its time to give it another boot into the world of news.

All 3 projects are based on the #4opens and share a #PGA hallmarks philosophy.

Well past time to build out the #openweb

Making History - Resistance Exhibition!

This is a project I partnered to kick off - needs new energy.

 

Offering a real alternative to the dotcon world



This is a quite #reboot of the #openweb going on. This #4open project has nearly 1 million users https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_(software) It's one of the use it or lose it moments for life outside failbook. It would be a bad time for progressive funders to start to prop up the #dotcon world if we don’t try to change direction this sad outcome is invertible.

A funding application to setup/bootup both a "NGO" and a "Activism" instance of Mastodon. Each could have different "terms of service" but would both talk to each other and the wider OStatus networks. Its time and not a #dotcon and works #OMN

Would need a crew of 3 people part time for 6 months roll out then 6 month sustaining after this year the project should be self sustaining due to low running costs. Can use patron and occasional donation drives.

Crew
Hamish – lead fixer and Activist outreach
Sys admin – to set-up the servers and keep them running
NGO Outreach – to outreach to NGO's and get them to buy into the #openweb project.

Funding
5-7K funding for the first year. From Lush and Edgefund
This would mostly be part time wages with some server and outreach costs. A monthly donation would go to the development https://www.patreon.com/mastodon

The project would be organised on Github as a #4opens project as a part of a open media network.

Lets look at some alt projects from the perspective of the #4opens - corporatewatch.

https://corporatewatch.org/

Open data – the site has RSS output and the content licence is CC so a open

Open source – hard to tell what the site is runing but likly open source so a open for now

Open “industrial” standards – they support RSS, but thats about it so half a open

Open process – Process is opaque (likely open internaly) Thats ½ a open

Bronze 2 opens
Silver 3 opens
Gold 4 opens

corporatewatch is a “silver” 4opens project depending on some clarification.

Lets look at some alt projects from the perspective of the #4opens - realmedia

https://realmedia.press

Open data – the site has RSS feed but is copyright so 1/2 of a open

Open source –  its wordpress kinda open 1/2 

Open “industrial” standards –  they do not easely support RSS podcasts and most media is corp hosted so 1/2 a open

Open process – Process is opaque.

Bronze 2 opens
Silver 3 opens
Gold 4 opens

realmedia is a Bronze #4opens project, need clarification.
