"The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment."

I particularly miss the option to add/remove/correct/edit the #HASHTAGS in existing toots. Perhaps at least as #metadata (?). That would help organising and reusing content, taking this platform to the next level.

🎥 I was interviewed (among a long list of creators) for "Leaving the frame", a movie/documentary project about artists who work with free and open license. I met the @lentcine team when I was in Paris and spent an afternoon with them. I enjoyed sharing time with them as we share a common passion for Free Libre and Open Source content creation.
To finish the movie, the team collects right now a budget. Here is a link to contribute and help this project to be a reality: http://lentcine.tuxfamily.org/sortir-du-cadre-leaving-the-frame/

Probably the most useful tool I've ever learned to tackle a structural group problem is to brainstorm all the things that could be done and then organize them in 'low effort / high effort', 'low impact / high impact'.
Then do the 'high impact / low effort' things first, followed by 'low impact / low effort'.
Use the energy and momentum from those small successes for the 'high impact / high effort' things and just skip the 'low impact high effort' pitfalls.

We donate 1$/week for every Social Coop user who has made a post to WeCo that week.
20 users who post there at least once a week would mean over 1000$ extra funds for Social Coop a year. This can provide better pay for developers.
It can be about anything - sharing a link to a funny video, good song, interesting article.

We are not part of the Fediverse unfortunately. If there is someone who would/could make us part of it I'm sure it would be worth considering. Not sure if that's possible, as we are not decentralised.
