Is it Just a Coincidence That Steemit.com is Down Today? #OCCUPYSILICONVALLEY

Firstly, Happy 7th Birthday Occupy!

Today is September 17th, the 7th Anniversary of Occupy Wall St and Adbusters have launched #OCCUPYSILICONVALLEYa call to reject the big tech monopolies’ control over us in whichever way is most appropriate to you.

They’ve suggested four online actions you could participate in, or that you could simply take a day off the internet altogether.

I’ve only been on steemit a couple of weeks now but I’ve rapidly become a steemvangelical. I had been plugging steemit to comrades in my various little Occupy circles regarding it’s apparent multiple benefits to our mutual aims. I’d also been plugging #OccupySiliconValley to my fellow steemians, as quite a good day to promote steemit to people who would probably quite appreciate it there.

The Press Release Big Tech Doesn’t Want You To See.

OSVpressreleaseSearching for more information about steemit being down, I found this fragment from a link in an ecosia search result:

is under attack. There is huge DDoS ( get hundred thousand requests per second from botnet.… by fbslo”

isitdownorjust.me/steemit-com/* reckons it’s a problem with their servers. (*tip: it’s probably more helpful to check if it’s back yet using isitdownorjustme than directly requesting a page from steemit.com until the attack is over).

If I understand it correctly though steemit.com is decentralised, so that must imply either a very co-ordinated DDoS attack or a massive system error.

Or on the upside, it could also mean an absolutely momentous uptake in terms of new users, or fresh ‘plankton’. Either way, I’m reasonably sure that the good folk at steemit will have it back up and running again soon.

Is it just a coincidence that steemit.com is down today?

I’ve started a 24 hour poll on twitter.

UPDATE – Turns out it was just a bug in the code, apparently.

Reconsidering Voting and Democracy. [PRAXIS]

praxis

PRAXIS

Followers of this blog will be familiar with my longstanding position on fake democracy. I actively campaign for a real democracy but I’ve never registered to vote; ‘I don’t negotiate with terrorists’. ‘I refuse to legitimise a rigged game’. ‘Don’t vote it only encourages them’. ‘Whoever wins, we’ll still get corporate governance’,…(and other snidey one-liners).

I believe real democracy should be practised daily with our families, friends and the communities we share. If parliament conducted itself with the actual democratic rigour and discipline that most occupations, squats and protest camps do, it would be in a much better state than it currently is.

DeMOCKracy banner

Each time the electioneering machine starts up, I stand on the sidelines terrified by the effect it has on everybody, voters and non-voters alike. It’s horrible. You can’t just turn it off, because it effects (infects) everybody. We’re all supposed to have black and white  opinions on things which aren’t black and white and which otherwise wouldn’t interest us in the slightest…we’re supposed to pick a ‘leader’ and a ‘party’…(or snipe and heckle from the sidelines…)

I have expressed my cynicism about the state of electoral politics in this blog and elsewhere ad nauseum.

I’ve also discussed the paradox of the ‘diamonds in the rough’. Principled politicians who actually speak truth to power, offering us hope for a better world. Idealists, in an environment where we must hesitate before using the word ‘idealist’, or ‘idealism’. When did ‘idealism’ become an insult? Idealism should be a virtue but it is generally conflated with naivety….why?

BREXSHIT The Movie [Animation]

BREXSHITMOVIEPOSTER2I noticed that The Artist Taxi Driver has been using the BREXSHIT poster I made for him in his recent youtube videos – so I decided to reformat it into 1080 x 720 proportions – then got carried away again animating it all – hope you like it Chunky!

“100s of interviews with people from all walks of life… uploaded in realtime, a unique “open source practice”, an important social document, a witness to our times, culminating in a major, in an extra ordinary, 3hour 30 minute movie.. 12months of filming… Brexshit the Movie coming soon the rise of the right and how to defeat it”

If you can afford to sling Mark a few quid, please do – he’s almost reached his crowdfunding target of £15k.

You can watch the film develop in realtime on the Artist Taxi Driver youtube channel.

There’s loads more BREXIT/BREXSHIT counter propaganda on this site.

BREXSHIT MOVIE POSTER 2

The Artist Taxi Driver has almost reached his £15k crowdfunding target for his next film; BREXSHIT The Movie – Well done that man!

“100s of interviews with people from all walks of life… uploaded in realtime, a unique “open source practice”, an important social document, a witness to our times, culminating in a major, in an extra ordinary, 3hour 30 minute movie.. 12months of filming… Brexshit the Movie coming soon the rise of the right and how to defeat it”

I couldn’t afford to chip in to Mark’s crowdfunder, so I made him this poster instead:

brexshitmovieposter
Mark liked it, but it’s a pretty low res photo (was the best shot I could find) and he asked if I could do it again in higher definition.

I might have gotten a bit carried away, playing with fire…

BREXSHITMOVIEPOSTER2.png

Hope you like it Chunky!

I didn’t participate in the EU referendumb (because I don’t negotiate with terrorists), but I’m a big fan of Mark’s work and trust him to get to the root of what BREXIT’s really all about.

You can watch the film develop in realtime on the Artist Taxi Driver youtube channel.

However you voted, (or didn’t), BREXSHIT the movie will almost certainly cast some light on our objective reality. If you can afford to sling Mark a few quid, please do.

HATE-RIOTIC! [The Occupied Sun]

The Occupied Sun 

UKIP and The Tories Aren’t ‘Patriotic’, They’re

HATE-RIOTIC!

#MigrationWeek #BREXSHIT #AskPaulNuttall

OS_HATE-RIOTIC.png

 

By The Artist Taxi Driver
(Paraphrased)

The Right Wing Media is doing it’s best to get Paul Nuttall’s campaign on track. This is called gaslighting journalism. This is Tory journalism.
It exposes the collaboration. The Tories and UKIP are the same movement. They are the same vile, disgusting, anti-immigrant, racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic,.. Theresa May’s Tory BREXSHIT Britain pivots on one thing: prejudice for votes. And you know what? Dressed up as patriotism.
This isn’t ‘patriotism’.
This is hate-riotism.

Well done Bill Smith – the best of innumerous egg-cellent #askpaulnuttall tweets…besttweetever

BREXSHIT PANTOMEME #4 CONTEMPT

Theresa May’s clown costume represents her utter contempt for all of us proles.

brexshitpantomay

Having received some criticism on fedbook for this meme, I’ve started this poll on twitter. Is it sexist to point out that Theresa May wore a clown costume to deliver her speech?
