Hello! https://inventaire.io is a #libre social network to do the inventory of yours books, and share them with your friends and communities! It is developed by @maxlath and @jums and with the help of many contributors! Since last week, our authors pages link to #mastodon! (ex: https://inventaire.io/entity/wd:Q24939418 ) #Libre projects should support each others, right? :)
@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire give us a minute will you, we needed to create the account before linking to it :p
it's updated in the wiki https://wiki.inventaire.io/wiki/Communication-channels it will be updated on the homepage soon
@jums @inventaire @maxlath
will you write somewhere a bit what made you change your desicion?
I'd be interested to read, as I'm anytime I engage with ppl building/hosting plattforms, I try to encourage them to rethink their perspectice about comercial networks, with buisiness model of, collect, analyse, marketize private data...etc and choose plattforms that are aline with their own values.
@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire it's not a change of mind, simply a progressive deployment: I was precedently giving updates on #mastodon about #inventaireio from my personal account, and now it seems worth it to open a distinct account for inventaire, especially because we start a series of tweet on #CalendrierAventDomainePublic (an initiative by the French collective #savoircom1 to promote public domain authors)
@jums @inventaire @maxlath
you've been one of many (as I remember) I tried to encorage, but failed.
But you are also the only one developing a plattform who now changed their decision between the time I spoke the first time about it, and now.
So I'm wondering what it was, and maybe it's something I can use for my future 'marketing activities' when tryn to drag ppl into libre plattforms.
@paulfree14 @jums @inventaire for me it wasn't worth the effort to open and start to manage several accounts before knowing if #mastodon was here to stay: I'm happy to see that, despite it not being the big overnight revolution ;), it's now a well established social network that allows us to the very same people who might be interested by contributing to #inventaireio. But, I'm afraid, we are far from being able to close our fb/twitter accounts
If it's mainly for that I can't see the argument why it would be difficult to stop that, and choose other channels that are as user friendly as tw or fb.
@maxlath @paulfree14 @inventaire Proprietary platforms should be used for what they are : a helper to reach other humans. Necessary to not interact only with your own kind. Then and only then you have fun coding free software. Because you know you reach, you can confront. Especially not with your best friend. They try, give feedback, and inventaire evolves by staying strong on promoting open knowledge, libre software & the rights to personal data and privacy.
if one stops using propiertary software to promote a libre project which could be a new way of connecting them to an alternative to the existing software how will you ever reach the people that are stuck with using propiertary software? Someone needs to take the sacrifice and be the messenger between the 2 worlds. Like buddha, he could have gone to nirvana immedietly, but wanted to spread his knowledge and wisdom before he left.
most usage of fb is harmefull even if intentions are good
But I disagree how most are using it, and would go so far in even sayn it's counter productive.
On my perspective non of your given arguments to your statement make sense to me.
I've wrote some of my
