Fascinating sprawling discussion on counter anti-disintermediation, decentralized social media, decentralized infrastructure, politics of coops, mesh networking.
Two thoughts spring to mind:
- Mastodon isn’t great for reading a threaded discussion
- Seems a shame all this great discourse is destined to just eventually slide off a timeline, what's to be done about that?
@neil A curated, searchable list of memorable threads started by social.coop members? It seems like there should be enough information in the posts to reformat the conversation into a tree like threaded view, if that was desirable. Of course, I don't know of an easy way to do that. It would be interesting if it could be an extension to Mastodon.
@neil @cstanhope the thread can be extracted from the API: https://social.coop/api/v1/statuses/99324980275573606/context so it shouldn't be too hard to create a threaded UI around that
