i'm invited to stream for a local cafe - I love those guys, LGBT activists, real progressive electronic music, soc-analytical round tables, etc - but they want me to stream a DJset or live electronic performance (if I want) to facebook. It really got me thinking.

We need a network of nodes with PeerTube 3.0 (they announced streaming support, but it's not happening anytime soon), or something like Open Streaming Platform (FLOSS streaming server) openstreamingplatform.com/

@luka
Yeah, it’s sad that only the big platforms offer an easy access to streaming. Some of my friends from a local feminist DJ collective try to use twitch.tv (Amazon) now. I'm already getting on their nerves, I think, with my concerns … After all, they are happy if they have a way to do small online events.

The Autistici collective has a server for streaming, maybe that would be an alternative for the moment? live.autistici.org/

@jine yes, i can totally relate. I'm also often a bit perplexed when minority groups, who are so often discriminated, uncritically use platforms where they can be tracked, silenced through algorithms (AI), and even bullied without repercussions. I have a feeling that the allure of the big global social network "where everyone is" is too strong, perhaps it's a move against ghettoisation that is stronger than fight against surveillance capitalism?
