Still on FB because of activist groups and a few particular friends who refuse to move - like my brother from another mother Randy Fullerton. Recently, FB's algorithm's have been recommending books and films in Spanish that are all right up my alley. I'm guessing they are based on the profiles of my Spanish-speaking friends and respective likes/comments. Seems like my English language FB contacts are harder for the algorithms to read.

@Matt_Noyes @irmalila funny, I just posted today that I reopened an FB account to participate in activist groups

@CodingItWrong @irmalila

It really sucks. If we could agree on some local activist toolstacks we wouldn't have to do this.

What if we used Mobilizon instead of FB groups/events, Matrix/Element for chat, and - this is looking ahead a bit - Murmurations for resource sharing and mapping? (Not to mention Mastodon for microblogging.)

There are lots of possible tools.

@mike_hales and @disco_coop are the toolstackers I look to.

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @mike_hales @disco_coop
Short term toolstack could be an "extended trinity" like 1) sync: Element.io + meet.coop 2) Discourse/Loomio/, 3) Nextcloud+wiki 4) Social.coop + Mobilison + PeerTube and then specials stack like Odoo, Mailtrain, ...

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @mike_hales @disco_coop
These tools aren proven and mature. However not all are following a decentralised or distributed architecture. We will need to continue exploring and investing in the ideal toolstack, that allows individuals to contribute seamlessly to different collectives without the need to multiply tools / UIs.

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @mike_hales @disco_coop
Agree totally with @bobhaugen and @lynn that it's about protocols, open standard protocols for distributed architectures

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @mike_hales @disco_coop @bobhaugen @lynn
My greatest hope here lies with where promising projects like might build distributed hApps for collaborative and social net features

@Wtebbens
Your comment raised 2 questions.

One is the current states of those projects. I'm familiar with Hylo and doubt that they will ever migrate from their current architecture to Holochain. Not very familiar with Kizuna and Junto.

But my main question is will those projects ever be able to interoperate as is somewhat built into Activitypub/Fediverse projects.

(We're involved in both paths, Holo and AP.)

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @mike_hales @disco_coop @bobhaugen @lynn

@Wtebbens
Followup question: why isn't the Fediverse the base for the toolset you and @mike_hales want?

(I'm not arguing that it is, just wondering why not.)

@Matt_Noyes @CodingItWrong @irmalila @disco_coop @bobhaugen @lynn

Follow

For the activity types mapped in the fediverse apps I think it's the way forward.

As @mike_hales points out, AP only covers one part of the needed stack of course.
