Mastodon#identica

Really interesting and wise thoughts from Evan Prodromou : The Power of Wikis, the Problem with Social Networks, and the Promise of A.I. changelog.com/podcast/257

I had lots of interactions in #identica
They all got wiped when Evan moved to #pumpio
Remember: everything on the Net is temporary

@Gargron playing with for a week and I love it. Much better look than Twitter :)

What I miss from the good old days in is groups (statusnet, laconica). Is there going to be support for groups like for Mastodon in the future?

@sri do you mean like Groups in ? For example:
quitter.se/group/privacy

I miss that from the old good days in . When it was implemented with

@ariom some few GS users have moved to Mastodon, but mostly the Mastodon population are new users, many of them former #identica users
@deadsuperhero @takeshitakenji @archaeme Somehow, I suspect that there was a time when #Twitter itself considered adding federation. It would have been between the time #Identi.ca launched and shortly after #GPlus cloned #Diaspora's UI and aspects functionality.
mhm, only port 22 is open?! is #identica dead?? Error: 500 - http://identi.ca/
@notnavigium @strypey I have two possible sources for the name: @mk or @jpope. It could have been around the #bifurcation (when #Identica switched to #pump.io, splitting one network into two) or even earlier, around the time of the StatusNet 1.0/1.0.1 upgrade, when identica was offline for multiple days and many of us launched our first self-hosted instances.

@lxoliva I became more closely involved (shares etc.) in #mastodon #joindiaspora and #identica (which seems near-dead now)

@nds The other side of this is that removing ads from #Identi.ca and other SN sites helped lead to the #bifurcation of one federated network into two incompatible federated networks.

One of the main drivers was the cost of operating Identi.ca with no corresponding revenue.

#identica has now been totally down for 1.5 days. Weird. Whenever it happens I wonder if they will come back at all (ever).

#identica still down tonight. It has been down for nearly a whole day now. I remember when it used to be a giant.

@csaurus I'm guessing there's a sweet spot between everyone on one overloaded instance (eg the old #Identi.ca)...

@dick_turpin @thelovebug

the difference with identi.ca/ is that the flagship instance mastodon.social/ was closed in time to permit other instances of Mastodon to florish as well ...

plus that the GNUsocial fediverse was already in place and that mastodon.social/ could talk to another node in the bigger fediverse ...

toot ! 🐘
