Re: %gb77smR6L

I saw The Fanatic and thought it was interesting as an experiment. It was deeply uncomfortable to watch, but it was clear that it was intentionally uncomfortable, and it had a coherent style and vibe that was nevertheless original. On the other hand, somehow, it basically didn't push any of my buttons or satisfy any of the desires I usually satisfy by watching movies (including the desire to see a weird uncomfortable move).

The only thing I can compare the experience of watching The Fanatic to is the experience of watching Mosquito State -- they're both deeply strange and unsatisfying movies that are extremely polished and well-made -- but the difference is that I felt like I understood exactly what The Fanatic was trying to do (and that it didn't really succeed), while Mosquito State stuck in my mind because I couldn't figure out exactly what it was trying to be, so I couldn't say for sure whether it achieved it.

Re: %k2FXXhaIZ

Tcl/Tk is sort of unique among GUI libraries because it's optimized for exploratory programming. Every other GUI toolkit I've used has required a lot of boilerplate and setup. Even Tk bindings for other languages tend to be quite heavy: a GUI that is 100 lines in Tkinter may be 100 characters in Tcl/Tk.

Tk has a lot of upsides: it works the same on basically every major platform, has comprehensive documentation, is lightweight, and makes it pretty easy to go from nothing to a finished GUI.

Downsides: it has a handful of hard-to-justify internal inconsistencies (a problem shared with every other GUI toolkit), it defaults to its own motif-inspired widget style rather than the environment's preferred style, and it is missing some now-common features like alpha compositing (basically because of some Microsoft-style corporate shenanigans Sun pulled that functionally halted development for years).

If Tk got all the modern features added (a difficult task since it involves modifying some core assumptions of the compatibility layer -- for instance, on every platform Tk kind of simulates old stock X11 features from back before alpha compositing was common, and if you add an alpha channel then you need to rewrite all the color logic) then I'd use it even more often than I already do -- and Tk is my preferred toolkit already.

Re: %cDBD2z5bH

I've got strong opinions about why this post is wrong and bad (but also, in a way, correct) but they're a bit off topic.

On SSB, the culture is a substantially more different from twitter than the fediverse is, the technical differences matter a lot more to ordinary users, the behavior is a lot more confusing to new users, and explaining the things that they need to know in an accessible way is a lot harder.

Seeing as how fediverse explainers have been really confusing to non-technical users, despite the much lower bar, it's clearly a difficult task. Maybe we can learn from the failures there in order to explain SSB better.

--

Tangentially:

Post frequency is related to post length, but it seems like a lot of people perceive it as though it's similar to technical complexity, maybe because of cognitive load? Like, for new users, who are trying to master a new interface and a new culture at the same time, the content being transmitted by the network vies for cycles with the user's model of how to use the interface and predict behavior. Many years as a developer have trained me to separate this out, which makes it hard for me to imagine the mindset of somebody who can't.

SSB, because posts tend to be long, is pretty slow paced. Also, because there aren't very many highly-active users (and perhaps also because of something about how gossip polling works that I don't fully understand), it's really hard to get a high post rate in your feed even if you specifically try: I follow an enormous number of people (and an enormous number of large pubs), and I see a rate of substantially less than one post per minute.

The fediverse has some nodes that support long posts, but the default post size limit is marginally larger than twitter's (and so most posts are even shorter), so post frequency is higher even purely on the grounds that what might otherwise be a single post instead becomes a thread (and each post in a thread might get separate replies, rather than having a single longer reply that addresses several topics). Also, where the SSB clients I have used have a single public feed corresponding roughly to mastodon's "home" feed (complicated by the hop configuration), mastodon's web view on desktop will by default show the often-faster-moving "local" and "federated" feeds as visible tabs, and users must hide them. I wonder how the perception of the complexity of the fediverse differs between new users who primarily use desktop vs those who primarily use mobile.

tl;dr: while explaining SSB to new users is genuinely harder, users may perceive it as less complex because less stuff is visible, and we might have to take this into account when trying to onboard users.

(In fact, the way we often get bitten in the ass with onboarding is that new users will fail to connect to a pub or fail to understand how long initial database construction/scuttling might take, see no content, and think either that the app is broken or that the platform is a ghost town with no users.)

Re: %PnbweR8uY

Maybe this medium is optimal for introverts and autistic folks: it lets you control the pace of reading, the pace of writing, it distances yourself from the (sometimes) terrifying eye contact and sensory overload of body language etc. Maybe this medium isn’t “social” at all. Maybe that’s just euphemism.

There are other benefits, too: social networks are almost all asynchronous or semi-asynchronous, which allows you to control your time and energy expenditure in ways that would not be acceptable in person (for instance, you can decide you've seen enough for the day and log off without saying anything, maybe catch up later, but if you do that in person or in an otherwise time-coordinated situation like a video call, you're inconveniencing other people by breaking the network effect of coordination & you'd be expected to give a good excuse); also, a lot of people have reason to fear physical violence from any mixed group in public (and this overlaps with autistics) whereas nobody can punch you in the nose through the monitor at least.

Re: %P1wpihnvZ

The specifics here might be a question for @andrestaltz. He's talked before about how some performance issues with mobile that look, to an outsider, like they ought to be easily avoidable are actually difficult to avoid because of the relatively cramped nature of the mobile platform (and, I assume, also issues related to how resources get allocated to apps).

That said, manyverse seems to be more geared toward 'freshness' than, say, patchwork. There may be an attempt to get current reactions & replies for a post before drawing it, rather than drawing it and updating it later when new information has come in.

Re: %iIVnY5sf0

BDFL really comes down to control over PR approval, right? (I mean, in the context of projects using modern distributed revision control systems like git, where every checkout is a full-featured fork unless and until merged, lacking only the social capital of being the place most people look first.) In which case, 'dictator' is sort of a misnomer -- the term came out of the early days of Linux, pre-bitsaver, where somebody had to take patches from the mailing list and figure out which ones would make it into the tarballs periodically uploaded to FTP and then distributed through FTP mirrors, a technical organization whose hierarchy functionally requires a political hierarchy.

Under a git-like landscape, forks can theoretically overtake each other on merit without any individual person "deciding to fork" (as in, consciously deciding to create a new project to compete with the 'main' or 'original' one), or even overtake each other in terms of popularity without merit entering in at all (ex., whichever version of a repo makes it into one of those popular "awesome <x>" lists will end up getting the most attention). So, rather than a nationalist & monarchical metaphor, a bolo or patchwork metaphor fits better. (Patchwork has semi-monarchical baggage because Moldbug is who he is, but nobody knows wtf a bolo, so shrug.)

Re: %ANUKa/OhQ

The knitting machine was planned (and demoed at a convention), but never released. (I have forgotten what the justification was.) However, many computerized knitting machines exist.

For those not aware, Nintendo was wary of marketing the NES as a video game machine in the United States because the common understanding at the time was that the Atari crash of 1984 had killed the video game market permanently; as a result, they invested in a lot of add-ons in order to move it into a different category. This is why the NES originally shipped with a little robot attachment: the idea was that they could market it as a personal robot that also tangentially could play video games. The impression I get is that the knitting machine attachment was intended to portray the NES as something closer to a home computer -- in other words, a general purpose machine you could use for a variety of tasks -- and to broaden the audience to include older women.

Re: %WINfwkeLF

I'm a heavy user of twitter (though I take full advantage of its information-curation features, which most users are apparently unaware of: I always use the reverse-chronological timeline (not the algorithmic one) and limit notifications to mutuals, and I am disciplined about unfollowing or muting people who make my experience there worse). A lot of my brainstorming occurs in the context of 'screaming into the void' on twitter or responding to things people have said there. I rarely see any twitter drama firsthand; I know it exists because other people, who aren't making full use of blocking & muting capabilities, complain about it.

I use facebook less frequently, and I wish I could use it even less: the feed can be made reverse-chronological only on desktop (which is miserably slow) and in no version of facebook do users have control over the types of events that trigger notifications, so whenever I make the mistake of engaging with a post, I get inundated with stupid & bad-faith replies from strangers. I mostly use facebook as a source for memes to cross-post to discord and tumblr; aside from its thriving culture of image macro aggregation in private groups, it is bad at everything worth doing.

I agree that it is a mistake to confuse "success" with "popularity" -- and while I've seen people on SSB make that mistake, I mostly haven't seen long-term/regular users or developers make that mistake.

No discussion of mutualism is complete without pointing at The Center For A Stateless Society, the premire mutualist organization. Mutualism gets underrepresented in discussions of anarchism (possibly because people who don't have a solid understanding of marxian economics feel like they are too close to anarchocapitalism).

Re: %zxZLL4sz1

Managing, reusing, and periodically compacting fixed-sized arrays corresponding semantically to content (with a fixed maximum total size that's a reasonable amount of data for the device it's running on), heavy use of packed bitfields (not just for flags -- ex., if some integer maxes out at 16, then use 4 bits of some integer variable that you're also using for something else & use masks + shifts), moving stuff from 'human-readable' formats to dense formats as quickly as possible, & stuff like that.

Once upon a time, these things were part of "high performance" computing, but these days they're sort of limited to embedded -- I work with "big data" for my job, & we use python & blow other teams out of the water in terms of performance just by taking advantage of streams & avoiding unnecessary O(n^3) operations. I think the bitfield stuff still applies for, like, designing journaling filesystems? But it wasn't very long ago that everybody had to do this stuff just to get reasonable performance on consumer hardware for common tasks, so there are plenty of resources on how to write performant code.

Re: %zxZLL4sz1

(For instance, a palm doesn't have even a gig of storage, so you couldn't possibly store gossip as json: you'd need to roll your own high-performance flat-file database optimized for exactly the structures that occur in SSB messages. Which isn't trivial but neither does it involve technical revolutions or anything. It just requires some careful design.)

Re: %zxZLL4sz1

Gossip files get pretty big, regardless of the memory footprint of the actual code. Do the non-JS stacks do anything clever to keep ram usage low?

I'd love to see a Palm implementation of SSB but I'm sure it'd need to be from the ground up -- I doubt you'd be able to reuse any substantial amount of code from even a Go implementation, simply for performance reasons. But I don't see such an implementation requiring any magic -- just a willingness to code like it's the 90s and a careful eye toward optimization.

Re: %hPSWbswlH

I actually get a lot of good discussion on twitter (which, from what I gather, is unusual) and very little on facebook -- and I think it's related to the ability to filter out noise. I keep twitter notifications limited to mutuals & force a reverse-chronological feed, and make fairly heavy use of the mute-user function, and the result is that everything other than good-faith engagement disappears from my feed -- while facebook doesn't provide comparable controls so it perpetually tries to suck me into shallow arguments with absolute strangers over basically symbolic issues.

SSB benefits from the way that the follow graph works, but I think the primary reason it's good here is that, on average, we have a really high quality community of people who try to think deeply and communicate clearly. As the network grows, things like separate participation/mention tabs for people you're following vs folks further away in your graph will probably become more important (since Manyverse basically proved that you can onboard totally nontechnical people).

Usually, when I see complaints about "the culture war" & look into them, I see somebody doing personal meaning-making in a public space and somebody else claiming that the first is abusing some sort of authority. (That said, my general policy of muting anybody as soon as they say something dumb means that I don't get much exposure to 'follower' politics & shallow drama, so maybe that stuff actually dominates 'culture war' spaces and I've simply muted all the loudest voices already.)

Re: %hPSWbswlH

Yeah, I think this is the core of my disagreement with the author of the thread: 'having an opinion' frames criticism as the accumulation of information-commodities (one obtains an opinion, which becomes an attribute of oneself, the way one might obtain a novelty pen or a graphic tee -- some kind of sign representing one's constructed personality, formed out of predigested positions and preferences), whereas I think of media criticism as a process of engaging in a dialogue about values that challenges and transforms our values by questioning, clarifying, and refining them.

The former is a fundamentally adolescent attitude toward media: running away from the realization that the self is illusory (or at least arbitrary) by obsessively trying to self-define and jealously defending the elements of those self-definitions as though they are eternal essences; because of this, it's socially determined (one accumulates signs from culture) but not socially productive (one doesn't transform these signs, but merely accumulates them by selecting and rejecting, and the closest thing to a transformation is juxtaposing elements that have already been chunked).

The latter is literally productive of the social: criticism proper is a form of creative work in of itself, examining the underlying assumptions and underlying logic of existing works and reframing, juxtaposing, subverting, and inverting features -- finding new joints to cut at.

It's the difference between "I don't like Harry Potter" and "here is how a particular element of Harry Potter that is currently lazy and uninteresting could have been made to cleverly play on reader expectation while reflecting an element of the real world that might otherwise go unnoticed" (or alternately, the difference between "I like Harry Potter" and HPMOR).

"I like Harry Potter" or "I don't like Harry Potter" is not a critique and is barely an opinion -- it's just a flag in a bitfield of consumer preferences -- and doesn't really merit being expressed. "I don't like Harry Potter because..." is the beginning of a critique, because it's the beginning of a conversation about what's wrong with the world in general and how we could fix it -- and that's doing theory, a prerequisite for praxis.

Re: %e7vlRr2yQ

OS dev is really frustrating, and doing a microkernel makes all the normal OS dev problems 100x harder. I've developed several small OSes & never once did a microkernel, basically because it's a huge pain in the ass.

The first stages are the worst, because of all the constraints and fiddly setup. The more complete the OS is, the less support stuff you have to implement from scratch for common tasks. (Though if you're planning to use pmode, it's probably best not to use bios interrupts at all, since you won't be able to use them after turning on memory protection; printing can be done just by writing directly to VGA memory. Also, it's not cheating to use an existing bootloader like grub or lilo -- I'd highly recommend it unless you want to do something really wacky with disk formatting that violates the concept of partitions.)

Re: %hA8dzy9Ky

Yeah, interpretation can absolutely be routed into counterrevolutionary channels. I think it's important to point out that most interpretation isn't politically useful. But if that shades into implying that interpretation is inherently counterproductive to any radical political project, then we've put ourselves in exactly the same trap that we're complaining about the interpretation complex falling into.

Re: %hA8dzy9Ky

He goes hard, but I don't think he's right. If 'taste' was merely consumption-preference regulation, he would be. Actually, interpretation is an important part of general meaning-making, & it's how we imagine possible futures (the first step towards deciding which ones to work toward).

This is not to say that we don't meet resistance in any activity other than consumption. Part of the reason for this is that 'blessed' interpretive frameworks, supporting and supported by existing dominant institutions, try to frame all activity other than consumption as unthinkable (or, failing that, gauche): liberalism's focus on the ballot as the only legitimate form of political activity, for instance.

The rejection of rioting as a form of politics mirrors the rejection of science fiction as a form of literature: to those who benefit from current conditions, only "normal" activities are worth considering, and anything that is not already "normal" should become impossible. There are modes of interpretation that support this (for instance, the literary fiction community), but anything that could possibly open up new futures is necessarily a mode of cultural interpretation: even massive advances in technology underlying material conditions will be set to benefit only their current beneficiaries until and unless the superstructure creates a context for them to do otherwise.

Re: %L8bQEMlm9

He's also very into author control of layout & formatting (which is why his proposal says all of CSS is in-scope). But, if all of CSS is in scope but none of javascript is (especially with fixed width), why not just transmit images/videos? Or, if you absolutely need screenreader accessibility, why not just transmit SVG? HTML+CSS is a huge resource burden and basically means that you're making webkit into a dependency.

Accessibility is at odds with author control of formatting/layout, because on the one hand, most accessibility options involve stripping or decontextualizing some kind of non-vital element (ex., extracting all text for a screenreader, or replacing the author's carefully-chosen color pallette for something that is actually comfortable to read, or zooming in on individual elements enough that assumptions about what elements can be seen together are broken), and on the other hand, to the extent that accessibility options depend upon hints (ex., indicating which buttons are vital for navigation) non-professional authors simply don't consider use cases they don't personally use & thus write stuff that breaks heuristics (ex., the use of unicode homoglyphs & emoji for aesthetic purposes, which fucks up most screen readers). But the only good reason, from my POV, to even bring in markup is to theoretically support screenreaders & other accessibility options.

I've talked to Sloan a bit about this subject, and he was surprised that anybody could be so strongly in favor of the user choosing their own formatting & so against total author control of text. (When, of course, my position was just that the user should be trivially able to override all author-provided formatting suggestions, even with a single config that controls the format of all pages.)

Re: %CGtnMluVq

Right, but he was distinguishing his protocol from ssb by saying that ssb was "twitter-like" in some way while his system was not. It's unclear exactly what he means here.

In SSB, you generally pull more than one hop deep into your follow graph. That's incompatible with not seeing "anything you didn't specifically ask to see". But on the other hand, mastodon (which he says is "twitter-like" in the same way) doesn't have multi-hop replication; your mastodon home timeline is only the content posted by the people you follow. Twitter has all sorts of attempts to do algorithmic feeds and recommendations (though these can be disabled, and are late add-ons rather than core functionality). I don't think these three platforms have enough in common with respect to how "seeing things" relates to "asking" for them to be grouped together and contrasted to his proposal.

Re: %e7vlRr2yQ

Linus did substantial amounts of Linux on his own (prior to 1.0), which is a nontrivial effort, and so he's certainly a competent coder. (I have written some OSes myself, and very intentionally avoided even trying to implement some core unix features, let alone compatibility, simply because it's a huge pain.) Of course, Linus is far from the only one who has singlehandedly written a unix kernel capable of hosting a GNU toolchain & coreutils, and he hasn't been the biggest contributor to Linux (or probably even the biggest individual contributor to Linux) since the mid-90s at the latest.

Linux owes its place to a number of factors: narrowly beating 386bsd to release (and thus being the first properly "free software" unix implementation for commodity hardware, in an environment that had been expecting one out of GNU since 1984), being the favored implementation of people who had just heard about this world wide web thing and needed to run an httpd in the 90s, and at the tail end of the 90s riding the side of the free software vs open source culture war that had all the big corporate money (mostly by refusing to take sides). Being the only free Unix for commodity hardware in the early 90s basically meant being the only cheap way to get memory management and file access controls; if you weren't running Linux you were getting a UNIX license (which probably also meant not using PC hardware) or (once it was available) you were getting an NT license.

Riding the popularity of web tech doesn't just mean that your user base is made up of enthusiastic amateurs who have no idea what they're doing; it means you are actually vastly outnumbered and outvoted by those amateurs, who will try to get features that shouldn't exist in order to support their pet projects that shouldn't exist. So any project involved there will become a giant mess. These guys don't have a good sense of the difference between doing something hard and doing something difficult, so they categorized Linus as a genius when really he was just competent and stubborn. The nascent open source movement benefitted from mischaracterizing Linus, so naturally, they made him into some kind of wunderkind figurehead. I don't think Linus himself ever bought into that hype.

I interpreted it as being about the use of endlessly-scrolling feeds, because that's the only thing that all of the items he mentioned have in common that his proposal doesn't involve.

Re: %45XobLgeC

at least in the context of clients like patchbay, patchwork, and manyverse

I intended to mention here that systems like patchfox seem to support a very different non-feed-based interface (at least from what I've gleaned from posts about them), but largely because they are not primarily intended to deal with the kinds of text posts that make up the majority of traffic on the butts but instead to support more exotic messages.

--

I also intended to note that the feed didn't just replace pagination but also largely replaced multi-panel interfaces, which can have some interesting properties.

I'm not much of a fan of the overlapping-windows model (which seems to be another hack for dealing with small low-resolution displays -- something desktop users no longer really need to worry about), but variations of tiling are pretty cool.

Tiling can support multiple independently-scrolling windows, and some people (ex., heavy emacs users) find that very powerful.

I'm a fan of two-panel systems where a summary on one side is linked with full content on the other -- something that was very typical for console-based usenet newsreaders and somewhat typical for dedicated email clients, & is now possible (but not enabled by default) on outlook & gmail, but is basically nonexistent in new systems because design is mobile-first and phones have such a stretched aspect ratio that they can't really benefit from this: in portrait, summaries are too short horizontally, and in landscape, everything is too short horizontally. The two-panel approach allows you to divide your attention between the summaries and the full content, planning which item to read next, but this is pointless if you can't see relatively full summaries of a large number of items. I used this kind of two-panel interface in my fediverse client, fern, and fern deviates from the 'twitter' style in other important ways (by keeping track of which items have been seen and skipping over them by default, for instance, and treating boosts as duplicates of the original items, and by making threading a natural part of the summary sidebar).

The difference here is that there's actually an association between panels in these tiled interfaces, while panels in Sloan's model are totally independent fiefdoms. Any interesting juxtapositions are necessarily accidental, and this feels (like RSS) like a view-first kind of system instead of one that encourages active participation. If you post but aren't aware of who is following you, you're often going to default to screaming into the void -- and perhaps, much as the blogosphere evolved ad-hoc mechanisms of indicating influence and connection, we'd start to see a kind of culture of conspicuous citation as a bulwark against this feeling of total solitude.

@enkiv2 %45XobLgeCg0SGxHCx9rhIzd0MTy4BsYPzdvmFyZ4jsU=.sha256

Robin Sloan has come up with a presentation protocol, & it points to a couple corners of potential UI design that are left uninhabited by a monoculture of timelines and web-apps.

I don't have the same level of trust around other people's aesthetics that he has -- I almost always would prefer plaintext that's formatted according to my own preferences -- but otherwise, this sort of mosaic/juxtaposition-based model makes a lot of sense to me.

It's probably of interest to this community since he cites SSB as an attempt at "twitter done right" -- a categorization that feels wrong but (at least in the context of clients like patchbay, patchwork, and manyverse) is less wrong than it feels: we have longer posts, but we're still basically doing a reverse chronological feed with threaded replies and reactions.

It occurs to me that the rise of twitter (and feed-based interfaces) corresponds with the rise of the smartphone. There are accepted justifications for this: twitter itself started out as a method for routing SMSes to groups, and the rise of the smartphone sort of corresponded to the rise of high-speed internet (which justified bandwidth-wasting techniques like XMLRPC that may also have massive latency impacts from dropped packets) so in a sense these patterns of web development were only feasible at that time for most users. Also, twitter, facebook, and the iphone were all first released within a year of the end of moore's law -- marking the beginning of a return to a model where personal computing devices acted as terminals to some bigger centrally-controlled remote machine. But I think the key to the transition is that phone displays are small, and so "mobile-friendly" (even as it wasted plenty of cycles) always avoided putting too much on the screen.

In fact, the one social network that sort of looked and acted like the model Sloan presents is Google+ -- which flopped horribly. It flopped for a variety of reasons that Sloan's project does not replicate: Google was heavy-handed in trying to bring in users, embraced an obviously-stupid 'real names' policy, and the app was slow & a resource-hog even compared to facebook. However, one element was probably that the mosaic-style interface that visually distinguished it from everything else was desktop-only.

There are other kinds of sites that use mosaic-style interfaces, but almost all of them are conceived of primarily as image sharing services (ex., are.na). There's an idea (probably stemming from early Brown University hypertext guidelines, which got internalized as 'best practices' in the early web and got applied to systems that had much larger and higher-resolution displays) that having more than one 'chunk' of text on a screen would be confusing to users. It's probably still true on mobile, and it's probably still true on desktop for users with poor vision. But, when making something new (especially something that is not intended to be for-profit) you don't need to produce a default experience that targets broad swaths of users; you can target yourself and your friends. Popularity is failure when it means interesting ideas need to be dropped. Mosaic text is an interesting idea.

None of the clients I've used have a dark mode that's sufficiently dark / have sufficiently high contrast. Also, they're generally resource hogs. I'd really like a very lightweight client (say, 25mb memory footprint) that supports complete user configuration of the color scheme.

Re: %LHERJyGhn

Sex work is typically organized under a freelance/contractor model, so I don't think it's unreasonable to compare them. The difference is that software engineers and designers have a lot of social capital while sex workers have so little that there is a constant risk of being put out of work by do-gooders looking to "save them from themselves". In other words, it's a matter of scale around risk: designers are never going to have their profession criminalized or get kicked off platforms in order to appeal to advertisers, and there are no powerful political organizations formed around the central goal of putting all software engineers out of business.

Speaking as a steadily fully employed software engineer, the "exit strategy" stuff really only applies to urban populations. If I lost my job, I'd have a hard time getting another, because even fully remote employees are generally expected to interview in person, and I live quite far away from big population centers (so basically any possible interview would mean a minimum of a 3 hour drive each way).From what I gather, lots of small companies hiring locals scattered far away from each other is also common in the midwest tech scene (versus the east coast of the US, where I am, which is dominated by NYC). People in my situation would benefit from unionization, for sure. Whole sectors of tech are centered in places that are not of urban density (for instance, med-tech seems to be mostly midwestern) & these sectors don't get talked about because they aren't within the sphere of influence of VCs and therefore don't benefit from the venture capital public relations advertising complex (of which most of tech journalism is functionally a part).

Because of the fairly extreme situation of sex workers, I think labor organizing for sex work actually represents a pretty good model to copy. They seem to be pioneering and polishing new kinds of mutual aid networks (and this sort of reminds me of how philosophy around consent and contracts is being rapidly iterated in BDSM communities -- basically because failure to handle that stuff properly is so much riskier in BDSM than in other kinds of relationships). I don't have much direct insight into these groups since I'm not in the industry & I'm not close friends with anyone who is (although I have acquaintences who are), but it seems like SWAID is worth taking a look at, for instance, as something combining elements of union and co-op.

To seriously address the probably tongue-in-cheek comment made by @crowsmobile: my day job is working on a b2b system for searching intellectual property records, which is to say that I spend eight hours every weekday upholding several interlocking systems that I find ethically odious and that only serve to make the entire world worse. (Basically, the system I work on helps giant corporations better calculate when it makes the most business sense to send each other nasty legal threats.) Naturally this makes me feel dirty; my alternatives (based on recruiting emails) are Amazon, Facebook, and Raytheon, all of which would require me to move across the country and do things that are ethically even worse. Meanwhile, sex workers bring only joy to the world.
