For our other instance on #OpenWeb and #Indieweb, here is this question. Curious how folks would answer it: https://indieweb.social/@jeannie/102730386030230321
So with a few friends, just launched this new instance:
We seek to promote innovation and shared evolution and promotion of such technologies as well as to offer this instance itself as a platform to experiment with integration and early implementations...
From the creator of Ruby on Rails, and the CTO of Basecamp. “May RSS rise again. Stronger because we are wiser.” Hope so. #indieweb
#Mastodev types: may be some good ideas in the Tumblr Labs features. Am relooking at Tumblr post-Automattic purchase, and am setting up an account there again... but only to syndicate to from my #indieweb main account.
"Owning your content isn’t about portable software. It’s about portable URLs and data. It’s about domain names...If you can’t use your own domain name, you can’t own it. Your content will be forever stuck at those silo URLs, beholden to the whims of the algorithmic timeline and shifting priorities of the executive team."
The main issue is I might want to customize things to make the instance the most #indieweb friendly possible.... Haven't even explored if that would require forking code, or can be done on a hosted environment.
"I wonder if Micro.blog and Automattic are on parallel tracks...finding our own path to a shared vision of the future that embraces content ownership, supports healthy communities, and deemphasizes massive social networks."
Now that I see that it doesn't already exist, I am actively exploring setting up a new #Mastodon instance just focused on how the #Indieweb, #Fediverse #Mastodon #selfsovereign #identity (#SSI) and related #openweb efforts all mix. Or how they should but don't yet. The instance software itself could also be a place to experiment on how to do this better.This would be akin to how other instances are purely focused on Privacytools, or other subsets of tech.
Anyone interested in co-admin-ing?
Interesting that like #Madtodon, the #Indieweb platform #Microblog limited search to more basic things purposefully to avoid harassment and spam. Seems wise but needs good UI explanation, as Twitter and FB have trained us we have a divine right to search every single public thing. @Gargron @manton @humanetech

That will make my #indieweb project of migrating last posts from Medium.com to the open web via Micro.blog a lot easier: https://www.manton.org/2019/03/11/medium-import-for.html
