@andstatus Hello! I never really got much further than planning it in the end, life and work and health interfered. One day!

@nico Do you have any kind of an overview of what you are planning / dreaming of?

@andstatus the idea was to strip out all the identifying bits for every account on your timeline and instead assign each a colour randomly (i.e. a square of that colour instead of an avatar and maybe the hex code instead of the @ name) so you could still do all the usual functions but all identity was obscured from the user within that app

@andstatus the idea is to free the user from preconceptions about people from their timeline, maybe interact with people they normally don't, to highlight any subconscious prejudice in terms of the attributes you know about the people you follow

@nico Actually, this "Anonymize other users" feature may be an option in the mainstream #AndStatus.
...Although mentioning other users in notes' body should be real (not anonymized usernames) for the interactions to work correctly.
Anyway, I could add a simple implementation of this feature just for starting playing with it?!
