In the #openweb reboot metaphors a strong path

The #darkweb is in our poisoned self that has fermented for the last 40 years. It’s the algorithms of manipulation, the #geekproblem unthinking pushiness of this fermentation. The #dotcons are the shiny surfaces of this mess. And the #openweb the seedlings to grow community.

This space has turned its back on this metaphor the last few years, can we now turn back before we are consumed by the #dotcons the shiny surfaces of this #mainstreaming mess.

In the metaphorical landscape of the openweb reboot, the concept of the #darkweb represents the darker aspects of our digital existence that emerged over the past four decades. It encompasses the algorithms of manipulation that fuel online platforms, the unthinking pushiness of the #geekproblem culture, and the shiny surfaces of centralized platforms (#dotcons) that dominate our online experiences.

The #darkweb symbolizes the poisoned self that has fermented within our digital spaces, perpetuating societal division, misinformation, and exploitation. It reflects the consequences of prioritizing profit and power over community and collective well-being.

In contrast, the openweb represents a path towards renewal and regeneration. It embodies the seedlings of community and collaboration, offering an alternative vision for how we engage with technology and each other online. The openweb encourages decentralization, transparency, and participatory governance, fostering a digital ecosystem that prioritizes the needs and interests of people.

In our #fedivers based #web1.5 reboot, there is #mainstreaming mess pushing, a collective turning away from the openweb metaphor, as centralized platforms continue to exert their influence and dominance. As we are attracted to be consumed by the allure of shiny surfaces and instant gratification offered by #dotcons, we risk losing sight of the values and principles that underpin this openweb path.

The challenge now is to rekindle our commitment to the openweb and reclaim its promise of community, empowerment, and connection. It requires a collective effort to resist the pull of centralized platforms and reassert the importance of decentralization, transparency, and inclusivity in our digital spaces.

Ultimately, the openweb reboot metaphor serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle to shape the future of the internet in a way that aligns with our values and aspirations. It calls upon us to confront the darkness of the #darkweb within ourselves and embrace the potential for renewal and transformation offered by the openweb.

All the #mainstreaming metaphor have strong poison, our weak alt use of them added this poison to our communertys and our selves. Not excepting “common sense” metaphor use is the start of the composting, pick up your shovel please.

A post on people’s likely reaction or lack of reaction to this post People react defensively to bad news, attributing blame to others rather than confront uncomfortable truths – Hamish Campbell

The inherent challenges in communicating urgent issues and the psychological barriers that hinder effective action. Emphasize the importance of understanding human behavior and psychology in navigating conversations about critical topics such as #tech #climatechange, public health, and social justice.

People often react defensively to negative information or criticism, attributing blame to the messenger rather than addressing the underlying issues. This highlights the need for patience, empathy, and strategic communication strategies to overcome these barriers and encourage meaningful change.

We need to stress the importance of persistence and resilience in advocating for important causes, even in the face of resistance or indifference. Emphasize the urgency of the current tech challenges, including #climatecollapse, and the need for swift and decisive action to address them.

A poignant reflection on the complexities of communicating about pressing issues in a tech world marked by skepticism, misinformation, and cognitive biases. Continued efforts to engage with others, build understanding, and mobilize collective action towards positive change, despite the daunting obstacles that may lie ahead.
