THREAD: What did the @Pan_Quake community learn at tonight's 2nd monthly public delivery meeting?

(The full event video will be posted at the bottom of this thread!)


First: updated campaign statistics

Only 4 weeks on, we've had a 50% increase in donations, a 30% increase in donors, 4 new campaign updates posted, 6 new media appearances and some very dodgy and untrustworthy new follow stats from big tech that may or may not be accurate!

2/? Image
Second: more techy geeky stuff

You may remember from last month, we'd completed our use cases, workflows, & mockups.

This month we've been mapping our application properties: the objects, methods & data structures that our code will reference & which define our application

3/? Image
Third: updated front end development pathway

All front end elements are now set in stone & signed off on. We will likely have our entire set of final screen proofs by next month (we have quite a few already) then can begin to build, test & eventually integrate the pages.

4/? Image
Fourth: serving our community isn't just about the tech

We know you've embraced Panquake not just as a product but as something really close to your hearts so our marketing team is working to give you some really cool stuff. Vids, soft & hard copy designs & merchandise!

5/? Image
Fifth: Because our donors are our investors, we have chosen to make our build process the most transparent I've ever seen done in the public arena.

We want our business to be transparent too. So some key staff have committed to sharing their @Pan_Quake experiences with you

6/? Image
Sixth: In this letter to our donors, our Support Manager relays her feelings about her interactions and communications with you, our Community, and shares what it's like to work on the @Pan_Quake team

Spoiler alert: she lets slip that Panquake will have live chat support!

7/? Image
Seventh: Where is our donor money going? Is it being used well? Do we really know how to build a commercial software enterprise?

Trolls & smear agents are working hard to spread lies & seed distrust. But our Accounts Administrator blows the lies completely out of the water:

8/? Image
Eighth: Panquake's web presence is ever-growing and being lovingly tended to by our amazing volunteer staff

This list of our public digital assets may help you to find us in places you didn't realise we inhabit

We announced we've joined Substack & will be blogging too!

9/? Image
Ninth: With a nod to Barlow's "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace" & Assange's "A Call To Cryptographic Arms" @Pan_Quake's first Substack post will be a modern day treatise on user privacy, security, state & corporate abuse of the internet & a call to action

10/? ImageImage
The very smart @Liberte_info told me Panquake isn't just swimming upstream, it is swimming up the Niagra Falls.

He's right, but we aren't scared & we aren't stopping. We *will* deliver.

*When* can you get your hands on this life-changing product? That depends on you.

11/? ImageImage
I am very grateful for & most importantly mindful of the support, investment, sacrifices, trust, hope, confidence and experiences of our staff, our donors, our endorsers, our Community and our future users. They are why we give this our all.

Our success is your freedom

And now without further adieu, here is the playback of our March Panquake Public Delivery Meeting!

Would love to hear all of your feedback.

I'm already looking forward to next month!

BIG THREAD: When a self-professed "disinformation specialist" turns out to in fact be a specialist in circulating disinformation.

I was surprised at how many people failed to scratch below the surface of @davetroy's semi-recent yet widely circulated pontificating about QAnon

Many people know that I was among the first people in the world to call out QAnon for the giant scam/psyop that it is.

I called it out in a now famous & epically long thread that I wrote in May 2018.

That thread was picked up & amplified by Julian Assange & WikiLeaks.

My thread calling out QAnon for a psyop and warning people not to fall for it was not only written while I was living in Russia, but was widely circulated by many Occupy-related activists & WikiLeaks supporters.

Why? Because we knew QAnon was bullshit & were warning people

Multiple times now, my account or my organisational accounts have been locked out or suspended & I've been able to get others to make enough noise about it to get it fixed in a day

That's a privilege. Millions don't have it. Millions are locked out permanently & lose everything
I actually lost a ton of my photojournalism & event coverage (years worth) when @OccupyNZ was arbitrarily suspended without reason. Likewise, we lost a huge piece of activism history when @OccupyAuckland was suspended years earlier.

Arbitrary suspensions really are book burning
It's the digital equivalent of someone saying "I didn't like your behaviour today so I'm going to set all of your personal photo albums and your home movie collection on fire and I'm not actually going to tell you what you did that made me do this to you. Don't like it? Too bad."

Wow. This better be a mistake.

@Twitter appears to have SUSPENDED all of the official #PanQuake Twitter accounts.

Including @Pan_Quake, @PanQuaked, @PQSupport, @PanQuakeDev and @PanQuakePeople

If deliberate, this is proof of anti-competitive, monopolistic behaviour by Twitter
@Twitter @Pan_Quake @PanQuaked @PQSupport @PanQuakeDev @PanQuakePeople In US govt hearings, when asked whether @Twitter & @Facebook were monopolies, @jack & Zuckerberg claimed to both support and WANT competing services to be launched

The suspension of #PanQuake better be reversed very quickly, or it would be proof that those claims were hollow

THREAD: What did the @Pan_Quake community learn at tonight's public delivery meeting?

Spoiler alert! Only scroll down if you don't want to spoil the surprises in the full video (which you can find here: or at

PanQuake - which is probably the most transparent business ever - has released a set of campaign metrics and statistics. It has only been 6 weeks since we launched our campaign, yet our stats are phenomenal.
ZERO corporate backing. ZERO MSM coverage. Yet look what you've done :)
We also released the full breakdown of web traffic to

These numbers are through the roof, for a grassroots project with a $0 marketing and $0 advertising budget and with no corporate PR or media support.

There is MAJOR public thirst for our solutions

Yes I get asked this all the time but it's OK :)

We have a team of 24 working on @Pan_Quake. Our architecture was completed Oct-Dec 2020. Build started Dec-Jan. The $$ being donated to us have cemented our ability to complete a Beta product.


The phase 1 funding paid for the nuts and bolts, but our staff are all volunteers so the length of the build phase will ultimately depend on whether we are able to raise more funds & employ our developers full time. We will launch a new crowdfunder for that purpose soon.

Each dev that we can convert from volunteering a few hours per week to working for us 40 hrs per week will dramatically decrease the build time. As we don't know how many we can do that with yet we haven't set a fixed delivery date. Instead, we're reporting progress monthly
