We made it to the opening of "radical landscapes" with Thalia Campbell to sit next to her banner.

Presumably that's not the "radical landscapes" that was at the Tate last year and is the one that just opened at the William Morris Gallery?

@rooftopaxx yep it is, we took Thalia to hang with the London arty crew and the old feminists 😀

@rooftopaxx we are going to be thinking about shutting down all #OMN instances as the is currently no money to pay the hosting, and outreaching is not working without a LOT of help.

The #DIY coding project is not actually working anyway, the has been no movement beyond chatter on the tech side of #OMN for the last few years, and the #fedivers stuff was set up to seed this dev.

Any ideas for a good path, happy to pass the instances on to a new responsible crew.

ta, guess it'd be time to head over to kollectiva, what's the approximate timing on this?

@rooftopaxx no timing yet, just a heads-up, will be a full month notice on the actually shut down, but will try more outreach first, and like the idea of passing the instance on to a new team?

don't really see any great coherence or mutuality within 'campaign', let it go gracefully. that is all.

@rooftopaxx the problem is the is nothing kollectiva as well, its a problem with the coding of this #openweb reboot, its fading as it goes #mainstreaming this is not a surprise thus the thinking about shutting down, only have so much focus.

hard agree.
(very much RETIRED at this end though)

@rooftopaxx
If the community has not already forged and formed itself such that they will self-support, then it's time to let go.

While I don't see masto as particularly harmful, it and the fediverse as it currently stands is not proving to be one of the ways to solve actual problems.

Social _media_ is useless to most people, in much the same way as news _media_.

We need social _discussion_, or social _cooperation_, social _news facts_ ? and social _tools_ to #GetShitDone

Agree, this is the #OGB we have 3 funding applications in for this lets pray it works its way past the funding #blocking of alt tech.
