Today in @Akien's ramblings:

How to make a #FOSS project successful?

(Or more truthfully, some factors of @godotengine's success story, and what are key takeaways to reproduce it?)

A thread ⬇️
@Akien My focus here will be quite specific to non-profit, non-corporate #FOSS projects.

#FOSS projects run by companies, with their own employees paid to write and maintain open source code, have their own dynamics which I won't cover here into detail.
@Akien With @reduzio (creator of @godotengine), we often get asked about the secret recipe for #FOSS success.

Godot was released as a rough, niche engine in 2014, and grew exponentially with ever more users, contributors, and now paid devs, to go rival proprietary alternatives.

Our new book 🚀🐌✊🏾 #Degrowth in Movement(s): Exploring pathways for transformtion

A dictionary of social movements and alternatives for a future beyond economic growth, capitalism, and domination. 📘Published @Zer0Books & with CC licence. Whats it about, whos in it? 👉🏽THREAD 1/
There have been many books on the concepts of alternative economies, on the #GreenNewDeal, a #wellbeing economy, #postcapitalism or #degrowth. But what about the practices?

How can the transformation of society be conceptualized? And how can we built alliances for this? 2/
Degrowth is not just a new term for an ongoing discussion on alternatives or a thriving academic research paradigm.

Its also an emerging social movement that overlaps considerably with other social movements – from #BasicIncome to #commons #unions #cooperatives #Feminism /3

Much to commend in #UK2070 work. Clearly a serious academic type regional planning orientated contribution to issues of regional inequality and what we need to do about it. Good stuff! However, whilst extensive, there are some serious omissions/lack of emphasis.
Few thoughts 1/6
💷Financialisation with wealth extraction? The great 'unleveller' of the UK economy. This is a hugely significant omission by #uk2070? Needed bravery here. It hasn't been.
🌳 #GreenNewDeal? Surely worthy of consideration as basis to industrial transformation/ rebalancing?
2/6
👨‍👩‍👦‍👦Local economies? Weak section. And no mention of #communitywealthbuilding(I declare an interest!). However, this is a key local economic approach adopted by dozens of areas and growing in anchor institutions (I.e #NHS)
👋Brexit. Barely mentioned.

Early election under the FTPA defeated again, by 293 to 46. Does BJ have other tricks up his sleeve? No doubt we'll find out soon. Next act is to lock MPs out of Parliament for 5 weeks. #GeneralElection #Commons
(Reminder: a 2/3 majority of all MPs was needed, so that was very very short of the mark.)
A deeply unhappy man...

There seems to be a bit of #Bangalore love on Twitter. So here is a a list of books about/on Bangalore that I've either read or enjoyed (in no particular order). Please do share your favourite book(s) other Indian cities. #booksoncities 1/n
Do you have patience? The Gazetteer from the Govt. of Karnataka (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) is a treasure trove. Do read their home page for more information. There is one from 1990 (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) and another from 2016 (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) 2/n
Sharma, Yashaswini. Bangalore: the early city, AD 1537-1799. Diss. Cardiff University, 2012. I have read the thesis from orca.cf.ac.uk/id/eprint/48787. In case you'd like to know how the ಪೇಟೆ's are named and the list of them, skip ahead to page 73. 3/n

Thread:

I doubt the EU-27 will accept the PM’s new 22 May date for the extension of #Article50 #Brexit deadline for at least four reasons:
- They’ve been stung before by #TheresaMay saying she needs “just X weeks”, with that then turning out to be longer
- They know she needs time for the legislation, even if #MV4 gets through #Commons and that there will still be internal opposition to it at that stage

A Balanced Investment Portfolio For Equitable Health And Well-Being Is An Imperative, And Within Reach

#SDoH #HiAP #Interdependence
Social Determinants As Public Goods.

@LenMNichols & @LaurenTaylorMPH demonstrate that the underprovision of interventions on #SDoH can be addressed through a novel but practical community financing mechanism.

“While the degree to which human beings pursue that which they think is good for them has not and will probably never change, what they believe is good for them can change and from time to time has, radically.”

Proud to finally announce P2P Models, my €1.5M 5-year ERC research grant to build decentralized, democratic & sustainable #CollaborativeEconomy organizations: p2pmodels.eu @p2pmod. Starting thread of tweets 1/10
#Blockchain #PlatformCoop
@p2pmod @BKCHarvard The Collaborative Economy is rapidly expanding, but it is dominated by centralized web platforms which hold user data and concentrate all decision-making power and profits. 2/10
@p2pmod @BKCHarvard The idea of the @p2pmod project is to tackle these issues, replacing the centralized web platform with a #DAO on the blockchain, so we reduce the difference of power between the "infrastructure owner" and the user community. 3/10
