This is the hangout and meeting space of the Edgeryders webhome. Welcome to discuss plain everything of mutual interest! Write a post and get feedback, or give feedback with comments. Especially if you don't want to create a permanent project for your idea or topic, this is a good way to engage with your fellow Edgeryders. 

Share your story from the Edge! We learned that a very efficient way to get the most out of being a member in our community is to talk with all honesty about how we are living and participating in society, and where we need help to improve our situation and that of our communities. 


Community Call 26/7 at 1800: Play date with GraphRyder! (episode 2: return of the ethnographic codes)

In the direct continuity of the last community call, we propose another seance of online and interactive demo showing GraphRyder, and especially how we use it to visualise what the EdgeRyders' community (hey, that's you!) is talking about, and what we try to extract from all this content.

Update the news wiki with new content and calls for action

Nadia's picture

Hi friends,

now that everyone has had some time to get into their projects it is time to start using social media in a more focused and regular way. So how do we leverage our collective online presence to draw attention and engagement to all the beautiful work and opportunities for collaboration?

We have some past experience in running a variety of formats such as twitterstorms (flashmobs on the internet) that are very effective at drawing interest to community initiatives. and they are ALOT of fun for everyone involved.

BenB's picture

Hi edgeryders,

This is a request for input from someone well familiar with ER community who can offer their insight as a representative 'profile' of the project / network to a new collaborative research and mapping effort covering the landscape of economic systems change.

You can read a bit more about the initiative here:

The survey form is available here:

need sys admin for paid project

I'm running a WordPress multisite installation on a Ubuntu/Nginx server. Need some help with setting up monitoring configurations because the site has gone done for a few hours at a time and (lacking support staff to monitor 24/7) I need to implement both some security measures as well as monitoring/reboot processes.

$100 USD or 80euros to start. More if necessary, TBD.

Nadia's picture

Hi everyone,

Is anyone else going to CCC? I thought it might be cool to test out one of the ideas we had in the meeting after lote about different event formats. This idea being going to different events and setting up some kind of presence there. So does anyone want to set up an assembly with me?

Rethink how we use, package and produce Community Content

Nadia's picture

Not only is effective use of collaboratively produced content important for growing our practical knowledge and supporting our intellectual development.  It can also serve as a source of inspiration and pleasure. When it's really good it also contributes towards encouraging mutual support and facilitating meaningful collaboration between community members.

Circles of openness

Dear Edgeryders, 

I'd like to share an experience about resilient community practices. Last year I organized a series of meetings in Utrecht, The Netherlands. First they were about Free living and money, later they were about freedom and transforming trauma's through awareness as I felt a desire to treat a more direct approach about individual transformation. I call these meetings "Circles of openness". 

Follow the worldwide movement of refugees with this visual

This article explains, wiht a animated graphic, the worldwide movement of refugees.  I also posted it on Facebook mainly as a way to show my amiercan friends that the USA is not where most refugees go.  I know a few people, and many of my friends do to, who in fact think the USA is filling up with refugees.  Not true at all, and really just one more way that people over here assume the whole world revolves around us.  It doesn't and it shouldn't, espcially with who runs the US government these days.

"Over here this interesting report was published today. It compares the economic impact of the big harbour of Rotterdam, the airport Schiphol, and the fiber and exchange infrastructure around the AMS-IX.

Surprise: the growth is much higher of the Internet "harbour" Economy, soon to overtake the others in absolute size."


SWARMWISE - leadership book by Rick Falkvinge

Freelab's picture

"The book doesn’t go into theoretical detail, psychology, or deep research papers. Rather, it is very hands-on leadership advice from pure experience – it covers everything from how you give instructions to new activists about handing out flyers in the street, up to and including how you communicate with TV stations and organize hundreds of thousands of people in a coherent swarm.

Incubators/accelerators for (social) businesses on the edge

Alberto's picture

As our beautiful stunted mutant of a company seems to be taking roots, I am looking around for possible incubators/acceleration programmes. This is quite tricky, because they tend to cater to for-profit businesses. This wiki contains links and one-line description of programmes that might be a good match for companies as "far out" as Edgeryders LBG. Needs an Edgeryders account to be edited.
