What are some projects we as an online community can start?

Submitted by Fossidarity in AskRaddle (edited )

I've been thinking about it for a while and I feel that it would be nice, and time, to start something with other Raddlers.

Due to geographical differences it should be something online and it should also be something everyone can participate in. Most of all it should be fun for everyone involved.

What are your ideas?

Idea 1:

Tear up concrete. Plant a tree. Take a pic. Post to a website.

Idea 2:

Fund translations of anarchist pamphlets / lit into languages spoken in countries where capitalism is on shaky ground. Fund printing of that lit and its free dissemination.

Idea 3:

Start a project to initiate mass civil disobedience flash-mob style. A decentralized app would tell users in the area where to be with no more than an hour's notice.

Raddle is a response to reddit in many ways

so I think organised engagement on reddit could be useful if we strategise

and it would be an organic way to draw new users


aside from that I think that the f/readingclub is a worthwhile project that already exists and could be much better if the people involved up their game

effective reading groups have always turned into action groups with time, in my experience
and are a great way to give the space as a whole common points of engagement with topics

I don't think engaging in the Reddit community would be a fun thing for me.

Reading groups are really nice but it tends to disengage people who are not into reading. I would love to see more activity in /f/readingclub but I was thinking about something with a bit more hands-on approach.

I've tried to engage with redditors, but even the 'anarchist' ones are straight up reactionaries the moment their whitepriv senses start to tingle. I've even been flooded with downvotes for badmouthing the US military on r/@.

It's an important job for sure, but a job for someone who can keep their rage in check.

I'm glad you enjoy it, I'll try to add some flair and get people engaged more. Hopefully it can turn into an action group as well

it's not more hands on, but for those people who aren't into reading (do we have those here?), u/selver started working on a film club.

I don't know what something effective with a hands-on approach looks like when we're spread all over the world, unless maybe it's programming-related, but that's even a smaller group than those who like reading

if it's organised, there's potentially space for many types of people

for example, you could just make memes and not get involved with conversations and it would prevent the harm you're trying to avoid

on its own or as a component of other ideas: robust security culture guides and specific guidelines for the project at hand

"hands-on" might also be too much for people that have barely gotten to know each other! at this point, the casual project tier of reading/film clubs (and similar ideas?) is the ground where i think cool things will grow

Lessons on stuff like programming/linux, human languages, math, music.

Something tells me my memes would get a cold reception on r/completeanarchy :p

But someone else reading should do that. Or if ppl have ideas for memes that won't incite rage in white middle class Americans but no Gimp skills, they can write them down and others can make them into memes.
