I currently believe in the need of developing and maintaining siphons. Siphons are mechanisms that let users reclaim their data that is currently trapped in walled gardens (including their valuable social graphs) and relocate it to freer platforms:
Is there a better word for this?
I'm a new person with opinions :)
I think Mastodon should get boost with comments (equivalent to "quote retweets"):
I don't think I've ever told you that in Flancia there is an Agora:
Flancia is a place in my mind. You are welcome to take a peek anytime you want: https://flancia.org.
You are free to join me. For that, you just have to wish to be there.
Flancia is always optional: you can leave anytime for any reason, or no reason at all.
I'd love to cross-post this thread to Mastodon, but I don't know how yet. Please let me know if you know of tools that make this possible; I'll research them soon enough otherwise :)
I'm a Flancian. A Flancian is just someone that follows an explicit public social contract which includes open values and goals. Mine could be summed up as follows:
1. I dedicate a fraction of my free time and resources to help others.
2. I try to assemble with those like minded to collaborate towards our common goals in an Agora.
I would describe myself in two words as a "utopian cooperativist" :)
You can refer to https://flancia.org/me for more details.
