The social media battles of the billionaires are disheartening. Luckily, these companies don't have a monopoly on digital community spaces. We’ve grown our EDC community using open source tools in order to connect and share without triggering the dreaded "algorithm" and its advertising cues. Meeting each other in such spaces is one small way we can reclaim our digital sovereignty and evade corporatization.
Take a look at this new blog post by EDC curator Anand Pandian, who just had the chance to meet and talk in person with Cloud68.co, our amazing digital infrastructure team based in Tirana, Albania. The link below includes a video of Anand’s chat with Redon Skikuli, a founder of the company and a long-time activist for digital autonomy. They talk about the importance of open source technologies and the digital commons, and various tools for online community building that safeguard freedom and plurality.
