Listened Microcast #081 – Anarchy, Federation, and the IndieWeb from Doug Belshaw’s Thought Shrapnel

This week’s microcast answers a question from John Johnston about federation and the IndieWeb.

This is a really interesting listen, Doug takes a philosophical view of the IndieWeb and compares it to federation. I’m going to listen through again before I posts some thoughts.

It was of note I discovered the podcast via a webmention on the post where I asked the question.

Greg McVerry responded in kind Politics of Plumbing: IndieWeb and Federation and Arron’s response to that make interesting listening and reading too.

Doug’s time in answering my question is very much appreciated.

“Our house is on fire” — Greta Thunberg

What if there wasn’t anything good about ed-tech? What if ed-tech is totally inseparable from privatization, behavioral engineering, and surveillance? What if, by surrendering to the narrative that schools must be increasingly technological, we have neglected to support them in being be remotely human? What if we can never address the crises of our democracies, of our planet if we keep insisting on the benevolence of tech?

I found that the tumblr produced by my raspberry pi (gifs of the sky) has been flagged as containing
sensitive media. I reviewed the posts & appealed around 40 of them (4 click per appeal). Unfortunately there are a dozen or so which can be appealed?
