The David Greaber Institute‘s Mastodon server is up and running. I hope it will be useful to some.
Unlike other Mastodon servers, my idea is to try to leave the rules as open as possible and have ongoing discussions about them. I see our Mastodon server as an online laboratory for creating and recreating social relationships.
We invite everyone to join us for this discussion.
For that, we will hold Assemblies where the rules can be discussed.
We plan to hold the first Assembly at 04 May, 2023 20:00 (London time)
Possible questions to discuss at the Assembly:
1) How to help develop the Mastodon Federation. Can ordinary users like you and me contribute to the technical infrastructure?
What are the dangers of not participating in its creation?
It would be great to invite programmers who work on creating Mastodon software for discussion.
By the way, the main developer is a Russian from Germany.
2) How can we organize a collective discussion about rules for our server?
How can we organize a collective discussion of the rules of our server without destroying it with chaos or, conversely, overly strict order?
These are all old questions about the nature of technology, about direct democracy, about how projects really work.
Here is my explanation of how art, social design and technology are connected and why such a project as Mastodon has everything to do with the Museum, specifically because this is a Museum of Care.
