I can't go to the platform coop conference, but are there folks who are trying to build a prototype? I was specifically thinking about how to blend federation with ease of use across tools. To me, a single account for many services feels ideal and convenient. Are there ways to do this on #federated systems?
Creating a culture of "creating for the fediverse" instead of single plattform orientation. Show more
One little idea how to move forward:
- creating a #fediverseSymbol
So, I've pushed out my post about what a modern #distributed, #federated alternative to #Facebook would/should look like. It's only in outline form now, and could be fleshed out, but I wanted to publish it so people could comment here.
#p2p internet will hopefully be developed alongside in parallel as the new framework to carry this content
It's time to make it easy (and low on resources) to install Mastodon so that this kind of shit doesn't happen any longer. https://mamot.fr/users/fabre_gregori/updates/219073 #federated
1) What is the context? (I.e. Who am I seeing? Why?)
2) How do I filter out languages I can't read? (E.g. Why so much 'Japanese'?)
3) How to stop it? (Timeline moves too fast.)
Resulting impression? Federated timeline is useless.
So Mastodon is not #distributed. It is #federated. Is it what we need right now?
"Decentralized protocols — true distributed social platforms — are very possible... If we’re going to allow ourselves to be driven off Twitter, let’s not be lazy about it. Let’s work together and build something no corporation can control, and no one accident — or calculated act of malice — can wipe out."
