1 Openverse

The last State of the Word reminded me again to check the Openverse project. Openverse is a tool that allows openly licensed and public domain works to be discovered and used by everyone. All code is open source (Openverse frontend, Openverse API, Openverse Catalog). Openverse is the successor to CC Search which was launched by Creative Commons in 2019. So an example of a great open project that meets all our open principles ! Cc-by is the future, be prepared.


2 Energy and our future

We face major challenges in the coming decade, but our world and societies are not yet fully broken. Our society misunderstands energy. This misunderstanding has simple explanations, but massive implications for the human future. We believe that a common understanding is required by many more people to find the best outcomes.


3 Automate your browser

Some things are simple to image, but still very hard to create in a simple way for non tech users. Automating manual browser actions is such a thing. Since web browsers exist people have tried to create ways to automate manual browser actions. This solutions is worth testing. And best is that solution is AGPL licensed so open for reuse and improvements.

Everyone wants to do good, but many ways of doing good are ineffective. Effective altruism is a research field and practical community that aims to find the best ways to help others, and put them into practice. This link is worth reading , but make sure to check also the forum to find like minded people in your country!


5 The environmental impact of a web page

Practice what you preach! So calculate the environmental impact your or any web page, see the breakdown and learn what measures can be taken to improve it. The internet uses a lot of electricity and a lot of that energy comes from the grid where we don’t use 100% renewable energy. So optimize your web site helps to save penguins.


6 New Economic Thinking

Mainstream economics has demonstrated blind spots that have impaired its effectiveness and credibility—and failed society at large. We need a new vision of the economy that aims to serve society. This foundation is created to repair our broken economy and create a more equal, prosperous, and just society. Everyone is invited to join!


7 p2panda: a protocol for local-first applications

We’ve learned how boring the internet can be: Centralized, commercial platforms take ownership over our data, sell it even further and on top prescribe how we can use it. But instead of complaining, some smart open minded people started to create a better alternative.
