Pinned toot

Hi, all! I finally got round to setting up my social.coop profile. Looking forward to toot (?) with you all!

I'm most online on evenings CEST and weekends.

This is what I think we should do with today's internet.

RFC :)

I drafted some ideas for a better migration experience, in semi-fictional format, here:

flancia.org/mine/flanbook

Are there any existing efforts along these lines?

Is there a group/hashtag in here for people that think that the best case scenario is that in which most Twitter users move to Mastodon eventually?

I believe we should prioritize getting the migration experience right, and for that we need to think of data and social graph migrations.

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:

flancia.org/mine/flanbook

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"):

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I don't think I've ever told you that in Flancia there is an Agora:

flancia.org/agora

Flancia is a place in my mind. You are welcome to take a peek anytime you want: 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.

Go links for my social.coop presence:

flancia.org/go/social-coop
flancia.org/go/mastodon

Meta: is the fediverse into go links? I sort of think they could become part of the ecosystem beautifully.

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'll be tweeting about my experience as I ramp up as a member of social.coop:

flancia.org/go/twitter-social-coop

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, concerns.

Thank you!

Newbie question (if you think this is lazy, please let me know!): is there an easy way to cross-post to both Twitter and Mastodon?

This might be obvious/naive (both describe me quite well), but I would think this is needed.

Hi, everyone!

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 flancia.org/me for more details.
