Fair enough. I try not to be a zealot but it is increasingly apparent that we need to break from big tech and support those FLOSS projects we love. We are || this close from being the equivalent of Gap on Mainstreet in terms of tech biodiversity.
Baby steps...I increasingly feel there are two 'tech' consumers...and convenience is tough to beat 😞
In Oct 2009 I ran spontaneously behind the Google Streetview car on Borsigstrasse Berlin. One year later the Streetview pictures were published by Google and my action became a performance piece. I called it “15 Seconds Of Fame“. I could be found on the service for a very long time, for almost 14 years. Google never updated the picture set because there were big discussions over privacy questions in Germany back then. But couple weeks ago, on July 25th 2023 Google ran an update and I disappeared from the service. „15 seconds of fame“ turned into almost 15 years ;)) The work is finally complete.
#Socialnetworks are not our communities.!
Humans lives in communities. We join them, we sometimes leave them. Social networks should only be an underlying infrastructure to support our communities. Social networks are not our communities.
#OFFDEM will take place next to #FOSDEM next year.
