And just to plug this: I have written about this a while back http://blog.mikiobraun.de/2012/10/pheed-social-network-decentralization-tent-tio.html
I mean who even remembers pheed, right? But I think there was an opportunity to create an open protocol like email for social media, and maybe mastodon is it, or maybe Twitter will create it, but I am not so sure.
Speaking of "like email", I think that's something that needs to be revisited as well. More than half my emails are notifications anyway.
Wow, I didn't know that this story continues to today. Pheed was apparently sold to an Isreali startup called mobile who has just last year been sued by its investors https://www.timesofisrael.com/beitar-jerusalem-owner-sued-over-hugely-hyped-now-defunct-photo-sharing-startup/ Complete with pictures of Leonardo Di Caprio!
@moellus es war wahrscheinlich nicht sehr nachhaltig.
@mikiobraun alles kleine Wassertropfen vs. the Silos stones u know
@moellus das auf jeden Fall... :(
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
