I will post a few conclusions from my recent experiment about using the fediverse as an organizing medium. Each conclusion will be a separate toot, posted as I figure them out.

This might take a day or three. And then that will be the end of my planned experiment.

If anybody else has followed along and has some conclusions to offer, and you are following the @organizingInFedi group, just use the hashtag (don't need to mention the group).

How about a social.coop happy hour session on the subject of groups and social.coop? We could look at your experiments as well as , which is also in the fediverse...

@Matt_Noyes @organizingInFedi
I'd be good with that but would like another couple of days to wrap up this experiment. Had some distractions yesterday and a few more today and tomorrow. I'll commit to wrapping up by Thursday latest.

Take your time! Just hoping to learn from your work. I know @mike_hales has been thinking about this. Also @nicksellen's work with Karrot seems relevant, thought I don't know if Karrot is in the fediverse?

@Matt_Noyes
I could be ready with a day's notice.

I am basically with my experiment, just want a bit of time to prepare a short version of what I learned.

Thanks! Is there a use case you can describe in which this type of functionality would be applicable?

1. I want to try to use the fediverse to do some organizing where we live.

2. @liaizon and @humanetech and @danielhglus wanted to organize "a community hackathon day, improve all the wikipedia pages about the fediverse in as many languages as possible."

That example continues in the next toot...

3. My partner Lynn does not like to spend much time in Fedi because the firehose of irrelevance interferes with her trying to get something done. Much of what she wants to do is related to Fedi.

@Matt_Noyes
Wasn't there some rumors /news about Discourse connecting to the fediverse? That could make a difference (to me, anyway).

I'm shooting for integrated information. I can tell sad stories when it ain't. And happy stories when it is.
