Indymedia - Re-awakening grassroots journalism
We are a wide affinity group working to reboot the global indymedia network using modern federated protocols such as #activitypub. This reboot will be based on the OMN project code.
What is the OMN (Open Media Network):
The project is to shift power to the producers and consumers of media. It’s about good UI and simple empowering #KISS tools to move content, by categorising it with a grassroots folksonomy. This simple approach is balanced by shared site level syntax for the complex crew.
Hamish Campbell will give an overview with
- Quick bit of history.
- What is this?
- How to revive …
Let us brainstorm how we can federate existing OMN code with ActivityPub.
In the end it’s about bringing trust back into news.
