A great resource for where things and things overlap and build on each other.


Would be interesting to see if any alliance between hosting or Indieweb hosting and IFPS and

"The vast majority of the internet's data is stored by 3 companies. Filecoin is attempting to build a decentralized internet so we don't have to rely on these companies."


A case for the - which I think largely makes the same case for self-hosted instances:

"There is an alternative to corporate bubbles online — it’s called the IndieWeb. Build your own personal websites, control your online presence, and learn on your own terms."


Yes. "The needs more developers."

"I ran through the 42 repos of every site in the Social Media category, adding the notably absent Diaspora, and I get a grand total of 76 active developers. Looking at the commit logs and pretty graphs I’d estimate that putting it in terms of full-time developers, we’re in the single digits."

Someone really needs to build a web based wizard-like tool helping those who want to and Instagram migrate as much as can be salvaged from their social friends and content over to and .

Into The , podcast interview with Sean Tilley, the former community manager at and editor of WeDistribute.... on the history of Diaspora, and the state of the Fediverse today...

Folks: are there good places on web, other accounts, or key bloggers to announce this instance? Looking for it to be seen by technologists and activists who care about , and related tech... Let me know...

"Even in the shadow of Big Tech monopolies, WordPress and other mature open source ecosystems still represent their antithesis, like a vast network of old-growth forests connected to small stands of young saplings.....

The wild, biodiverse forest image is a good one for us ...it is an image of social, interdependent, and very different individuals....we are doing our part to keep the web wild and healthy."
