Welcome to the Library of Knowledge for ~Camp!
This is a wiki where all the happy campers of ~camp can document different ideas, compile their collective research, and share information with each other, away from the noise and chaos of the mainstream internet.
To learn more about the wiki software itself, and the syntax it uses, see ~wiki:about
Camp is like a new kind of "social media". Socializing happens by wandering around and interacting through various different methods, but you generally don't know who you're talking to or anything. It's about the message, not the messenger.
- ~wiki - you're in it.
- ~chat - simple chatroom with no identities.
- ~talk - chatroom with guest access.
- Openbook - an anonymous "social media" platform.
- holodeck - a simple command-line game that anyone can play and everyone can contribute to.
- asciiwith.us - a game of drawing things using letters, and creating a world together with others.
- ~anon - ask about this one in-person to the anon who runs the server, if you know them irl.
The Library of Knowledge
The ~wiki is the Library of ~Camp. It is the gathering and collecting of knowledge. It is the coalescing of a deeper understanding, and a way to leave breadcrumb trails to help each other find our way.
Below you'll find some fun little sections of the Library that help us wrap our heads around all this knowledge.
The Knowledge Banks are just categories, collecting information according to the form and function of that Knowledge Bank. These methods of how to decipher and categorize information into the appropriate Knowledge Banks is usually a process further expounded upon within the Knowledge Bank's main page.
Fantasy Worlds is a place to get away, and a catalogue of alternative realities. This includes videogames, books, tabletop games, card games, pen and paper games, role-playing in chat rooms, and even writing collective stories together in the pages of this very wiki!
Lost Futures is a place to wrap our heads around the apocalypse we live in, how to cope, and how to survive.
Schizoid Realizations is a place to share different realizations you might have had, that you cannot reveal, because they would give up your secrets or illusions of security and normalcy in everyday life. These are the things that you want to say, but feel that you "can't".
Hacker Paradise is a place where we can share our coding adventures, tips and tricks, and categorize our knowledge of how to do cool coder stuff.
Human Resistance is where we discuss the perfect storm of technologies hijacking our psychology to plunge us into an emotionally toxic feedback loop that leaves everyone feeling vacant and lonely. We discuss the issues at hand, the limits of artificial intelligence, and how to mitigate these effects and create tools that help. But also to discuss more big-picture strategies and actions we can take.
