I'm happy that I'll be part of two meetings this month in front of the EU Commission talking about decentralized social networks and the work we've done https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/ec-ngi0-liaison-webinars-and-workshop-april-2021/1539
I believe this conversation is an important one to have, and I'd like to expand on why below.
I think for the most part, legislators aren't even aware there's another option.
But recently, @email@example.com did mention an alternative option in front of a congressional hearing, that we can build protocols as an alternative to centralization: https://twitter.com/jack/status/1375126820383645697
Whether you're optimistic about an organization like Twitter launching an alternative or not, it's important to start getting that message out there. This is a good first step to counter an immune response misfire.
You can see what was actually said here: https://youtu.be/u7ijNBTDUcM?t=169
Yes, there's huge potential in what we are building here together. In addition to the inspiring toots of @cwebber a call to action. I'd like to point you to #SocialHub, the community of technologists that is dedicated to evolving the #fediverse and build further on the great foundations we already have.
Your participation and our concerted efforts are vital to go next-level: Towards #SocialMediaReimagined all across the board.
