It has come to my attention that Mastodon, and/or OSocial, and/or the Fediverse, are no longer what they once were. They're being flooded by Normals. Or People who Don't Speak my Language. または私のアルファベットを使用しない人。

It's becoming like ... birdland.

Or worse: Facebook.

So, here's a thought for you: Facebook was once literally Harvard.

And whatever you think of FB or Harvard, it most certainly isn't any more. Which is a thought you might want to keep in mind. Because change.

Galbraith describes three types of power:

* Compensatory: Buying followers.
* Condign: Obedience through threat.
* Conditioned: Influence through persuasion.

It's a good start for discussion, including discussion about whether the classification is accurate or sufficient. I'll assume it is and consider it in the context of social discussion.
