With all my love for , watching this videos by the feels horrible and I have no idea how this could have happened.

I had a little breakthrough.

,Collective choice rules' does not mean ,a collective is choosing rules' but there is one or more individuals who set rules which influences the individual choice opportunities of a specif group/a collective. This means, a speed limit of 30km/h in the inner city is a ,collective choice rule', not because it is made by a collective, but it affects a collective, i.g. the car drivers who are driving through the inner city.

This took a while.

It may sound ridiculous, but it really frustrates me:

defines institutions as "prescriptions that humans use to organize all forms of repetitive and structured INTERACTIONS." (UID, p.3)

And afterwards she defines the Focal Unit of [institutional] Analyses as ACTION-Situation, despite they need "two or more individuals [...] that jointly produces outcomes".

Why isn't it called INTERACTION-Situation? Everything would make so much sense for me...

@douginamug @bhaugen maybe?

: Geht sich vielleicht eine Gruppe und ein Tag zusammen und wir mappen ein wenig die Stadt im -Team-Modus? Das wäre doch bestimmt witzig. Vielleicht hat ja auch so das -Umfeld oder haben Geo-Studierende Bock?

Wow, after two days of activity I am on global rank #3755... This project deserves more promotion.

Another take on that thread:
Our strategy ( )
is to develop software for a different economic system where the dominant capitalist software solutions will not work, but the user groups will be motivated to support their infrastructure.

Will it work? Don't know yet, but we already have some user groups that are committed to support their devs.

Don't listen to @marcusmeindel, it's a trap! Don't get #StreetComplete! You'll be addicted in an hour, start #HOTosm within a week, download #JOSM in a month and spend the rest of your life researching GPS devices and being the guy that always lags behing during a walk.

I always thought elinor explored existing in all its depth, but didn't have the perspective of an 'commons-based society'. But in UID, there are phrases, which let me rethink that.

But I further have to admit, that I may over-interpret the 'self-governing'-part.

I fell in love with the -App ! You can help to complete the without technical knowledge, simply by taking little challenges in your neighborhood - and the UI looks great! As a non-developer, I've never felt more capable of opposing Google:)

You can get it on !

There's been a conflict on your instance 💥 Those involved have not been able to work out 💢 It's a multilayered issue which is not clearly covered in your CoC 🧅

An admin decides in favour of one, but the other appeals the decision ⚖️

How would you now feel if a randomly selected jury of 8 accounts then decided? 🎲 (They could be some criteria, like having an account for over 1 year)

(This all happens in one instance, cross-instance trickier)

Today, the Bonfire team is excited to announce our beta release 🔥🎉

We’re aware that Bonfire still needs a lot of work - like ensuring it federates as expected and improving configurability, accessibility and user experience - but that’s the point: we decided to launch at this stage with the intention of building the 1.0 release as a community.

The EU's outgoing presidency and the Council just passed a remarkable declaration about #DigitalCommons, acknowledging that they "contribute to the preservation and collective control and valuation of data" & "improve the security of digital tools and innovations."

(re-)defining rules to govern /common-pool resources is the very basic process in .

Elinor classifies into seven categories (basic verbs in brackets):

1. Position-Rules (be)
2. Boundary-Rules (enter or leave)
3. Choice-Rules (do)
4. Aggregation-Rules (jointly affect)
5. Information-Rules (send or receive)
6. Payoff-Rules (pay or receive)
7. Scope-Rules (occur)

Falls jemand noch ein paar Euro über hat: Die Startnext-Kampagne zur Übersetzung von Werken der Kritischen Psychologie ins Englische und anschließenden Veröffentlichung unter CC-Lizenz, geht noch 9 Stunden. Für den ersten Schritt fehlen nur noch 220€.

Meiner Meinung nach ist das ein großartiges und wichtiges Projekt.

Just when we prolonged our campaign today to make sure we could meet the initial goal, we surprisingly made it in a few hours!
Support is still welcome to meet additional breeding goals (see description on the project page)

Find the campaign for an #opensource rye here:

23.6., 19 Uhr, im Nirgendwo, Berlin, wer kommt mit?

"Was #FreieSoftware und Freies #Saatgut gemeinsam haben"

Dieser Vortrag widmet sich den neuesten kulturellen Phänomen von Freier-Software und Freiem-Saatgut und beleuchtet Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen den beiden Sphären.



seit ich statt "fachkräftemangel" immer lese "mangelnde bereitschaft, vernünftige löhne zu zahlen", ergeben viele nachrichten wieder sinn, z.b.

"wegen der zunehmend mangelnden bereitschaft, vernünftige löhne zu zahlen, bringen politiker und verbände ein freiwilliges jahr im handwerk ins gespräch"
