shockingly, Twitter of all organizations is putting more of an effort into trying out the Fedi. There's an "unofficial" mastodon instance paid for/run by Twitter Bluesky:

You can't call yourself a leader in the decentralized web if you do not at the very least try to participate in the ActivityPub space. Looking at you, Mozilla and Internet Archive.

made a few edits on the converting redlinks (articles that don't exist yet) into interwiki links to Wikipedia.

I'm not the greatest at writing original content but my initial impression is there should be more focus on showing creators/organizations how they can adopt the ActivityPub ecosystem on their existing web presence. is the real .

Mozilla's now backpedaling on the crypto statement they made a few days ago. Good time to remind the org they can decentralize and stay true to

I also note that the Linux Foundation doesn't appear to have a presence in the Fediverse or on any open platforms, instead choosing only to use the centralised proprietary technologies of their board members' employers.

Happy 2022. It looks like the SoCal Linux Expo (SCALE) is still happening this year (hopefully!):


The #WebOfAgency

That's the name I'll use for #Fediverse to distinguish from the old web where we lose agency, and from Web3 and Dweb that coopted #decentralization

A web that empowers and people are in control of their life their freedom and their destiny. A place where society can flourish online. Where humans not only interact, but act and do together.

Fedi is #SocialFabric that weaves a #Peopleverse and you are part of it. We buld this thing together. All of us.


Why don't we use #SocialFabric to distinguish our fork in the #decentralization movement from the non-inspirational #Web3?



Why do we even need the analogy of a spider's Web where typically flies are caught. Captured, wrapped in, then sucked from their juices, their life flowing out from them.

Let's move beyond #Web. We are about doing #Social right, do you agree?

#Fediverse #FediverseFutures #SocialNetworkingReimagined #UnitedInDiversity

Is this now the self-organized, interoperable, self-certifying social fabric (cloud)?

#JoinFediverseWiki is almost ready for it's official launch in 8 days.


Right now I'm gathering feedback from people who are not deep into the Fediverse yet.
What you can do to help:
* #boost this post.
* show the wiki to your non-fedizen friends and forward me their feedback.
* of course you can give me feedback yourself even if you're a Fediverse veteran.
* help edit the wiki. For now I wrote almost everything myself.

Happy holidays everybody. 🎉

@[email protected] @[email protected] Worst thing we did. I wasn’t running company at the time. Company has worked hard and will continue to open back up completely.

If you are a fan of free open source projects (or any other kind of project for that matter), try asking them if they have a Fediverse account. Even if they don't, this will let them know there's demand for being on the Fedi.

If they DO have an account, please let me know so I can promote them on @FediFollows 👍

"Earlest known mention of the Fediverse was in 2013 by Mikael Nordfeldth in a W3C mailing list for the Federated Social Web Community Group" according to its wiktionary entry:

no offense to the people who coined the original term but I think it's poor branding.

Can we collectively come up with a better name than "Fediverse"? How does Open Web, with interoperable social extensions sound?
