I'm running a day long workshop at Radical Networks in NYC Oct 18 -- it's about how to run a small social network site for a small community. We're going to be making a (probably temporary) fediverse server for the "community" of our classroom and navigating all the social issues that arise when people with only surface things in common (like "we got tickets for this workshop") try to make an online space for themselves. https://radicalnetworks.org/participants/darius-kazemi/

whenever I actually watch lobbyists speak at hearings I am reminded to work even harder on encouraging "oh do I really know enough to speak?" experts I know to call up the legislative staffers and ask for an invitation to give oral testimony at these things. #nysprivacy

Lots of people weren't around for when the fediverse was at its first peak at around 2010-2011. Google Plus swept in and plenty of people quit the fediverse saying "Google will do a better job keeping this running than independent sites can." For this and some other reasons, for some time the fediverse was a ghost town.
Let's not forget that next time.
Hey folks (signal boost appreciated): I'm working on a series of urban fantasy novels that will prominently feature solidarity economics (first one due to the publisher in September). Does anyone know of any co-ops open to giving access to their day to day operations for the sake of accurate storytelling? I really want to get the democratic practices and the mundane everyday stuff absolutely right. I think it is very important.
