Hello fediverse! lib.reviews/ is a free/open/nonprofit alternative to proprietary review sites like #Goodreads, #Yelp, #IMDB.

It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already. On GitHub at: github.com/eloquence/lib.revie - IRC: #lib.reviews on irc.freenode.net - Matrix: matrix.to/#/#lib.reviews:matri

Is the Venezuela thing, like the Turkey thing, like the US thing, like most things recently, a sure sign that nationality based countries are kind of inefficient today.
Insisting on people agreeing on political issues only because of some vague ethnic/cultural closeness and shared history never made much sense to me. These days however it's getting obvious this can't scale. In a world of free travel and access to information, disagreements and dissatisfaction are getting very big.

This is really cool. What are some good accounts to follow?
