I think it was Mita Williams' newsletter that directed me to this article on informal permissionless spaces. It's very good. https://simonsarris.substack.com/p/welcome-ghosts

Not sure if anyone is interested but Digital Rights Watch is running a Surveillance walking tour of Melbourne to show the impacts of surveillance in a public and private setting. the Walking tour is here https://www.melbournesurveillancetrack.com.au/
Work commissioned a product agency to review our workflows and pain points.
Their solution is a road map that includes the development of 4 additional platforms/portals.
It's just 3 devs and me...
We're either about to embark on a massive hiring spree and radical change in engineering culture / practices...
Company is about to get a pretty rude awakening about how stretched we all ready are ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A topic to ponder for the fediverse:
If you're a veteran of the other place, you probably groaned at the mere suggestion.
Like, the reason I think that it sucks is that it was corrupted by "the Internet's Original Sin" and just got filled with shameless self promoters, and botnets and all the other horrible crap that happened over there.
the really enthusiastic posters of when I didn't associate the phrase 'hellsite' with twitter used to fill like the *entire tweet* with just people to reccomend, which was nuts, I wouldn't normally read those ones
but that even just revealed yet another problem with the platform.
Nobody had any room to provide ACTUAL CONTEXT of who they were reccomending that other people follow.
Comrades should lift each other up, so my current opinion is that it should be brought back.
I mostly wanna connect with Aussie based devs, but also cool people.
