@maxlath @jums @inventaire
huray, finaly :)

...but on the frontpage you're still promoting fb and twitter over opensource federated networks

@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire give us a minute will you, we needed to create the account before linking to it :p
it's updated in the wiki it will be updated on the homepage soon

@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire btw, the next place to lobby is at to ask for a #Mastodon logo: we can use a svg in the meantime (ex: ) but that makes things more difficult (giving a custom color especially)

@jums @inventaire @maxlath
will you write somewhere a bit what made you change your desicion?
I'd be interested to read, as I'm anytime I engage with ppl building/hosting plattforms, I try to encourage them to rethink their perspectice about comercial networks, with buisiness model of, collect, analyse, marketize private data...etc and choose plattforms that are aline with their own values.

@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire it's not a change of mind, simply a progressive deployment: I was precedently giving updates on #mastodon about #inventaireio from my personal account, and now it seems worth it to open a distinct account for inventaire, especially because we start a series of tweet on #CalendrierAventDomainePublic (an initiative by the French collective #savoircom1 to promote public domain authors)

@jums @inventaire @maxlath
you've been one of many (as I remember) I tried to encorage, but failed.
But you are also the only one developing a plattform who now changed their decision between the time I spoke the first time about it, and now.

So I'm wondering what it was, and maybe it's something I can use for my future 'marketing activities' when tryn to drag ppl into libre plattforms.

@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire for me it wasn't worth the effort to open and start to manage several accounts before knowing if #mastodon was here to stay: I'm happy to see that, despite it not being the big overnight revolution ;), it's now a well established social network that allows us to the very same people who might be interested by contributing to #inventaireio. But, I'm afraid, we are far from being able to close our fb/twitter accounts

@jums @inventaire @maxlath
from what I can judge the way you use twitter and fb it's not promoting inventaire much. It seem to be more a support channel, right?

If it's mainly for that I can't see the argument why it would be difficult to stop that, and choose other channels that are as user friendly as tw or fb.

@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire being present there for support and news is a form of promotion

@maxlath @paulfree14 @inventaire Proprietary platforms should be used for what they are : a helper to reach other humans. Necessary to not interact only with your own kind. Then and only then you have fun coding free software. Because you know you reach, you can confront. Especially not with your best friend. They try, give feedback, and inventaire evolves by staying strong on promoting open knowledge, libre software & the rights to personal data and privacy.

@inventaire this looks like something I was looking for a while ago! Will check it out.

@joop cool! if anything is missing, feel welcome to ask here or to add a card to the ideas list

@inventaire Will do! I'll need to look into it; there's a semi-community library nearby that was looking for something like this a bit ago, but there's quite a few (obscure) books, somewhere in the 100's of books. I'll make sure to add things to the roadmap as I run into issues!
