Think of the fedivers as a flowerbed in a big (#openweb) garden surrounded by concreate. We are interested in the garden and bracking up the concreat (#dotcons) to make room for more flower beds and wild forest.
The fedivers is lovely healthy’ish flower bed, a small part of the #openweb garden that we are caring/nourishing in our work. When we are down and dirty working in tech it is important to remember this. In the end the garden is human community’s living as part of a wider natural ecosystem.
The current prioraty is to get the flow working in a small and sustainable way – thus the hyperlocal test rollout and #epicyon.
This is why i use “mess” “shit” “compost” and “spades” as communication metaphors. The stinking mess we are in is a fertile time for change. For the last 10 years the #encryptionists agenders and the #dotcons have been a sterile time, in this shit is a good thing, to live in stinking times 🙂
We have to keep focus on nurturing the seedlings with nutrition rich flows otherwise they wither and die. “Prioraty is to get the flow working in a small and sustainable way – thus the hyperlocal test rollout and epicyon.”
Looking at wordpress (WP) as a option, would like to try this out on my blog (http://hamishcampbell.com) thus the desire to get it working better. We have already mastodon and peertube. With out a bigger crew we should concentrate on creating a flow with epicyon as this is work anufe. If we can join WP to this flow a bonus.
Rember we are ONLY planting the seeds in the cracks and nurturing them. The roots of the plants (community) bracks the concreat. If we spend time trying to brake the concreat we will soon be exorsted and achieve little.
So our mission is to find cracks and plant seeds. Of courses gathering the seeds (crews/code) is a first step – thus outreach and the messiness this brings – we do live in stinky times.
Then think of #searx (http://openworlds.info) as the map to the garden and as a way for people to find out of the concreat paths to the fresh #openweb grass fealds. It can all grow up slowly if we keep a nourishing flow going. If we forget, it drys up and dies as it has done meany times in the last 20 years.
You would be surprised how fast nature reclaims concreat given a chance 🙂
