Welcome to Telegram or if you've not yet subbed, details at the bottom.

Just wanted to explain a bit more of the idea behind Daily Chaos, underlying what I'm trying to achieve. This is a work in progress...

An opensource - not proprietorial - community that is a place to learn and share, to boost morale and to stay in touch; an amnesty zone with an ethos of mutual respect to encourage broader understanding not just 'within our ranks' but across the aisle; a cooperative content hub keen to share and promote content, ie ideas and debate, from whatever truth-seeking quarter and therefrom for us to be able to debate and each of us to gain a more rounded thoughtset; strategising activity and promoting third party groups with missions for genuine journalism (which tends to be vocational ie opensource and not biased), ultimately assisting holding power to account.

(I didn't actually use the word opensource in the vid, most amiss. #Opensource is a very important and beautiful approach: Linux is a benevolent endeavour created by tens of thousands of non-profits, for example, whereas Windows is a bunch of spyware created by a tiny few profiteers. I'm not saying proprietorial endeavour is wrong, not at all, just that it is not suitable for our purpose and the likes of Facebook or msm outlets prove the point: easily bought, biased, dishonest. Opensource is not a communist concept, but it is a way of giving to society while profiting alongside through parallel activities. Practically all the content creators we see in our community are of an opensource mindset, they do not charge for their research, they just enjoy researching and sharing... compare that to Murdoch.)

That's what I want to help create. I don't want to lead it (because I am not a leader - too provocational, bombastic, quite rude - but an ideas person), just to create the tools and to open them up organically in such a way the community can self-moderate without getting ruined by special interest trolls and shills.

...Not easy, but then nothing worthwhile involving lots of people ever was.

OK, I'm off to work on the news links facility which I discuss a bit in the vid.

If you've not yet subbed up at dailychaos.news and to its Telegram outlets, please do, and by all means invite others who also want to learn and share.

Olly,

 

Have to admit I balked on telegram the moment it made a phone number a requirement.  I get why they want to verify people.  But I've had to do this with G, Facebarf, Twatter, LinkedIrked, MyDisgrace and we know what they all ended up doing to us.

 

Will chill out on your DC forums, for now at least.

Dave

@davek Good point.

I'll be adding Signal and Gab as social alts and will do everything I can to make this place as 'social' as poss without actually turning it into a social network.

(Work in progress!)
