Re: %s7W0ONGrC

the city is selecting for more intelligent raccoons.

Yup! When I was in my early teens, I had a girlfriend who had pet raccoons. They learned to open their cages and were no longer pets, but came back often for food handouts. She could have improved the cage latches, but didn't want to trap the raccoons again. Figured they had earned their freedom.

raccoon_family.JPG

This raccoon family was investigating a hole in the ground. Caught on our trail cam, we wanted to know what was living in the hole, and so did the raccoons. (We never got a photo of the hole-dweller.)

They visit our compost bins nightly. Don't make a really big mess. In a city, they know how to open garbage can lids and other possible food containers, and teach their kids how to do it. The city raccoons are almost a different species via cultural evolution.

Re: %s/zHk19H0

ledger journals in git repos on ssb could be good for decentralized collectives that handle money

Depends on the form of organization. Ledger is double-entry accounting which looks at economic events from the viewpoint of one party. So like @cel 's accounts receivables are not @kemitchell 's accounts receivable. They may in fact be @kemitchell 's accounts payable.

We've found the REA accounting framework) to work better for loosely-coupled economic networks than double-entry. I could explain more on request if the "why" is not obvious. But REA don't got anything as sweet to use as Ledger yet. Shd have, gotta get somebody on it...should be even easier to use...single entries!

https://www.hylo.com/p/22923#comment-24063

I've been working on a database ecosystem as a spirital successor to sharejs / sharedb. I'm hoping will make some waves in the realtime collaborative space. The principle idea is that instead of a database being one monolithic program, the database is split out into lots of small lego pieces. And as a developer you can plug those pieces together in whatever way you want. Want auth? We've got that. Want elasticsearch integration? Crypto? A REST frontend? Caching? We've got those things too. All the pieces expose a common data API which supports realtime data feeds, so you can get a firehose of all the changes or subscribe to a query result set. For user presence I'm letting clients can be stateful, and push transient state back up to the servers. The whole thing will support MVCC and Operational Transform. (Or CRDTs if anyone wants to add them).

Re: %w/9jSkZEB

Compensation in a commons-based peer production ecosystem should be more based on a threshold of participation and less based on how much companies depend on portions of the ecosystem. Determining "value" across an entire ecosystem is very hard because you didn't build that.

Nice thing about software, though, is that as long as people play fair (don't just copy-pasta their dependencies on other software), shouldn't it be semi-feasible to find all of the dependencies recursively?

There's different types of leaders and thus communities. Some of them develop more leaders and the community ends up with a lot of leaders and a strong community. Some want everybody to do things their way. By anecdotal observations over the communities we've worked with or know enuf about to comment, those tend to have splits and sometimes fail.

We have not seen a thriving community with no leaders.

All of the open source work I do is aimed at building something bigger together than I could do alone. I see that same spirit in the Scuttleverse. We couldn't do it like this if it weren't open source.

And yes, people are thinking about how can we make some money doing this, but I think they are thinking about it together, or at least in groups, not as isolated individuals.

Re: %25/0urmZV

I'm glad you wrote this, and I feel for the mendicant maintainers, and think the whole situation sucks.

But I would also like to defend the necessity of open source, both in code and in science, for the evolution of human societies. @robin.paulson wrote a whole dissertation about it that I'll find soon. Or maybe he can repost the link.

But it's about broad open global collaboration in inventing the future together.

I'm also seeing the seeds of a possible solution to the problem of mendicancy, where some communities are starting to support their open source software developers who develop software that the community uses. The Mutual Aid Networks and FairCoop (for two) are starting to do this.

And @dinosaur wrote a blog post about another possible direction-toward-solution that seems to be down now...

I did the code-for-money thing for many years, both as an employee and as a freelancer, and got pretty good at it. But my employers and clients did not allow open source, so it was a bad way to get that kind of work done, especially if you had kids, which I did. Some employers now support people to work on open source projects, but then usually to promote the employer's agenda.
