Wondering (more expansively) over here (rather than Twitter) whether @somethingnew has the "specific regulations" (searching for that is the easiest way to find it) for privacy and data in its manifesto? And apologies, @Floppy, for not submitting a pull request to add it (although I'll try to find time later to do so) http://idlewords.com/talks/notes_from_an_emergency.htm
I'm talking about DoES Liverpool (and making in general I expect) over at Chester Devs next Weds. https://www.meetup.com/NorthWalesTech/events/238387320/ @rossjones fancy a trip to Chester? :-)
Mastodon, Twitter and publics
Long ago, I wrote about the theory of social sites, with the then-young Twitter as the exemplar. As Mastodon, GnuSocial and other federated sites have caught some attention recently, I thought I'd revisit these theories.
Ooh, @galooph, I like the add-on (/other) services as adjuncts idea. Definitely feels like a good idea for there to be instances (companies? collectives? /things/?) with various other things bundled in. As a way round the minimum-payment-worth-setting-up problem at least, but also in the cross-promotion or enough to then sustain the maintainer...
