#Fediverse, while we shaped a great place to be, we are sitting ducks for disruption by corporates where Metaverses are now the talk of the day.
We need broad vision to move forward, to ensure our relevance into the future, to inspire and become more united in our quest.
We do a lot of talking and we could do with more walking. Coordinated action.
I might be dreamy or crazy, but am afraid we squander the huge potential we have.
Let's build worlds, my fellow fedizens.
I know it is a bit vague as to "what should we do with this initiative?". But I see it as opportunity to think radically out-of-the-box. First just in storytelling / imagining, but followed with concrete tech support for better worlds, brighter futures.
I agree. I mentioned my view on that in another branch on this thread. I think fedi should find their own path independently and not be 'distracted' by Big Tech at all. And grow from own strength.
One big step forwards would be if we considered the fedi as a whole to be the alternative to Big Tech, and not individual apps (we have too much app focus now, imho). This is where #Bonfire is going towards.
I wrote something along similar lines in https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/from-silo-first-to-task-oriented-federated-app-design/1457
Ha ha ha, I just reacted to your great #Lemmy follow-up and quoting you in this thread, without realizing that it was you who wrote lemmy post in the first place 😂
Wonderful response 💚
#SocialCoding here we come:
I must say, this kind of hints as something, that I've been missing in the fedi:
This'd of course require some under the hood coordination, to proof that a given #activitypub object is created by the user it says it is.
(Something that currently, I think, is verified by the instance).
And there would have to be agreement as to where an #activitypub object should be stored:
On the serivce's instance or on the account instance?
(If I create a post on Lemmy, should that post be stored on Lemmy or on norden.social, my #mastodon instance?)
