Grub Street Journal. Thoughts from the Longhaired Blog Development Meta Tag Fueling process.
The Process of developing the Grub Street Journal Begins with an Email to a Group of Writers, Two with Books looking for a publisher and another A Journalist and Multimedia streaming reporter looking to build an audience others Bloggers , some very well known who have seen their audience plummet as first the Adocolypse and Media Purges of the Autumn of 2018 and then the Fake News, Election Meddling Narratives crackdown on Facebook took hold. Now New Cork Sniffing arbiters of whats fit to Print, Credder and others have joined Snopes and The Atlantic Councils Efforts (—) and Audiences continue to fall.
De Platforming is an obvious act of shutting up, screening through Filtering out results in the Mega Search engines is another thing altogether, it can be obvious but also ever so subtle. The Internet is a massively concentrated monopoly and The recent changes clearly show that the server-based Multi-Media Barons of cyberspace plan on keeping it that way.
IPFS , the interplanetary file system a Media hosting serverless supercomputer network along with Open Internet Protocol and the Flo Cryptocurrency all combined together to offer a way to create a new way to operate symbiotically with what remains accessible in the legacy web whilst, building a separate Republic of the Fourth Estate where Truth can be searched according to the shininess or hue of its truthiness in full-spectrum clarity rather than the Establishments Narrative spin filters and rose-coloured spectacles of the Corporatist Legacy internet.

1. #We Are Not Autonomes
Around the time that the Brexit referendum campaign started in 2015/16 Following the surprise Majority won by David Cameron in the 2015 Election the polarisation of Opinion really started to accelerate in the On-Line social media communities of Twitter and Facebook and in comments sections ( ever-shrinking in scope and opportunity) of mainstream titles on Line offerings.
Then Brexit hit like an Earthquake followed by the Trump tsunami in nov 2016, As British and EU political Institutions Crumbled the Tidal Wave across the pond Continues to rush inland enveloping Flyover America with the contents of the septic tank and sediments of a stagnated political accommodation and the un-elite ruling class bathed to its puffy crinkly and soggy fingertips, in its own Hubris and Venality.
Not only had the receding waters, starting in 2008, exposed the Naked Emperor but the Financial tsunami tide, having raised all yachts post-2008’s global Financial Crisis, Has now begun to expose the lack of seaworthiness of those vessels and their Captains. Not so many Captains of Industry but Captain Mainwaring’s of overweening vanity and pomposity. The Un-Elite, The Un-elected, The Un-Worthy and Un-Necessary, ruling corporatist class the Moldy rotten apples guaranteeing always the privations of an ill stored harvest.
“Any given accumulation of commercial wealth may be indicative, on the one hand, of faithful industries, progressive energies, and productive ingenuities: or, on the other, it may be indicative of mortal luxury, merciless tyranny, ruinous chicane. Some Treasures are heavy with human tears, as an ill-stored harvest with untimely rain; and some gold is brighter in sunshine than it is in rain.”
John Ruskin, from ‘The Veins of Wealth’.
Unto this Last.

Richard North, Flexit whose side is he on?
Cambridge Analytica and Dominic Cummings armed with the dark arts of Data science and Russian Money, Spoofed the UK silent majority of Racist Thickos to vote for Brexit. And then Donald trump with the aid of a Magic Mushroom piss storm on Twitter again aided by Russian Bots similarly Fake News’d his way into the Whitehouse by dog-whistling the red-necked gun-toting pointy hooded militia obsessed inbred ingrates of middle America Into the Whitehouse. Always, of course, a Building unsullied by any of the dark arts of political Graft and pragmatic acualite.
Then, of course, there are the inconvenient truths of the Post Nafta Peoples Banana republic of the North American Union, could be coming home to roost.

The Giant Sucking Sound, A Sharp Intake of Breath, A duel to the death. The New United States Republic 1776-2016.
In 1729 Benjamin Franklin wrote a pamphlet ´´A modest Enquiry into the nature and the necessity of a paper currency.”
a modest enquiry,
”There is no Science, the Study of which is more useful and commendable than the Knowledge of the true Interest of one’s Country; and perhaps there is no Kind of Learning more abstruse and intricate, more difficult to acquire in any Degree of Perfection than This, and therefore none more generally neglected. Hence it is, that we every Day find Men in Conversation contending warmly on some Point in Politicks, which, altho’ it may nearly concern them both, neither of them understand any more than they do each other.
Thus much by way of Apology for this present Enquiry into the Nature and Necessity of a Paper Currency. And if any Thing I shall say, may be a Means of fixing a Subject that is now the chief Concern of my Countrymen, in a clearer Light, I shall have the Satisfaction of thinking my Time and Pains well employed.
To proceed, then,
There is a certain proportionate Quantity of Money requisite to carry on the Trade of a Country freely and currently; More than which would be of no Advantage in Trade, and Less, if much less, exceedingly detrimental to it.
This leads us to the following general Considerations.”

The media is the Empire’s propaganda department, elections are pieces of Kabuki theatre designed to bamboozle the proles and power-obsessed thieves, liars, torturers and killers run the show. This is hardly a new development.” Under The Name of Eric Blair a comment on Off Guardian.
the idea before it was clothed in words
heard in minds, as uttered thought
the communication of arranged ideas
Thoughts lifting mist from the poet´s page.
To set the stage, not in the round
but, to see the scene in the sphere
Which actors will the playwright lay
on the page´s narrative to steer.
Which course to meet
who to set upon the bridge
For strength of Bulls Wall Street
of Bears & onion domes upon our chart
A heroes pride found in Britannia’s isles
Monks ´´sans humilite´´ fane ease
Like Pope we find our actors
´´All, all alike, find reason on their side´´
mais par impatience de souffrir
On the present discontents, Burke opined
Putin ,Trump and Farage set courses un-entangled
Junker , Merkel, Call for straight ahead.
Few are the partisans of departed tyranny
of Globalism or Nationalism which be the tyrant?
Yet passions are deceiving someone,
so near 50 years behindhand a hero fell.
“On this day, the day of March
in my opinion´´, is the end of the
United States of America
as the land of the free
and the home of the brave.”
Eliza with Rogerian inscrutability
hears the confession of the mal-contents
A mirror held up before cosmetic application
Globalisation and Internationalism confused
despotism´s nature is to abhor any say
save that of its own momentary pleasure;
it annihilates all intermediate situations
between boundless strength on its own part,
and total debility on the part of the people.
Our education can be Our? our, government.
Our reason can be our Judge, of the rivals;
Globalism, Authority, coercion and competition.
or Nationalism, Internationalism, Cooperation.
Are we to have free will and democracy
Will we have determined authority
A struggle of ideals an ancient quarrel
Parmenides or Heraclitus navigators both
If centuries be epochs with peculiar discretion
19th, 20th, 21st a behind hand review
19th innate goodness of man, nationalism
20th Fallen man Calvinist rule, Globalism.
For the 21st partisans for patronage

“The point here is about this is, is that the Internet and the interactions between people and interactions and exchanges between people
exchanging money. Then if money
is the sum of social relations in a
society, but it’s also an expression of
the surplus energy in a society. When it
(money) is expressed as prosperity. Prosperity
is the surplus energy available to any society
and then the third part of that then
becomes, if you want to
ensure that the health of that society

Then what the Internet becomes is the
distribution system through which value

|subject:||Web 3 Publishing Venture. Some thoughts|
Think of the internet as 3 stages of development;
- Legacy (Http, .com, .co.uk etc,)
- Cloud, Gen 2, .io, Uses HTTP but the content is hosted at multiple servers,
- Web 3, Using Blockchain and peer to peer distribution.
The race between .io cloud-based web2 and web 3 peer to peer networked web is, to use the hackneyed old analogy, the Betamax v VHS battle of the 2020s. or mini disc v cd etc.
OIP, Alexandria is the front runner for web 3 right now, I am due to talk with its CEO, Devon, tomorrow, I am hoping to come to an agreement to develop a Europe based Alexandria covering Digital Media with order fulfilment for analogue, Discs, Books, Artwork, Even Magazines.
The IO leader as far as mass adoption platforms are these people.
https://elgg.org/about Minds is built on top of “elgg” this
which deliver content live on the distributed web 3 and have varying degrees of Monetisation sophistication.
Apparently, Sparta broke and Athens has been re-settled, All roads lead to Alexandria it seems.
Thinking out loud here, this is cutting edge stuff and the decision of whether to choose “elgg” or “OIP” is a key one,
tokenisation is a trivial aspect, in my opinion, functionality from
means that providing free promo tokens which are readily available in legacy web and having marketing tokens on a blockchain seems like a waste of resources to me. see Rouge tokens for one instance of this, https://rouge.network/
On IPFS getting content to be interactive is still a non-trivial problem, IPNS and using a server-based domain can ameliorate the problem but of course, the Cloudflare servers are a point of DDos and potential state censorship interference.
if you have not instaled IPFS and do not have an IPFS daemon running you will not be able to open the above link.
This is on the face of it a small problem but switching out of mail clients and social media such as Twitter, Google and Facebook require a bridge and that bridge will be in place for some considerable time a decade or two at a guess, but who knows?
so, for now, that link is here and subject to takedown
and one more for luck
Individual blogging and stand-alone web sites on Web 3 will not trouble the powers that be even quite popular ones, the problem of censorship starts if people really take notice and where the content starts cutting through to
the top 5-10,000 web sites worldwide view counts fall off dramatically and most of the revenue in the web and audience attention is concentrated in the top few thousand web sites.
A game anyone can play, I will end there for now and will solidify some further thoughts if nowt conclusions later.
The answer is this.

“Next plung’d a feeble, but a desp’rate pack,
With each a sickly brother at his back:
Sons of a Day! just buoyant on the flood,
Then number’d with the puppies in the mud.
Ask ye their names? I could as soon disclose
The names of these blind puppies as of those.”
