Mastodon NL#federation

The internet has changed again.

I was explaining Mastodon to a friend, who asked about arcane terms of service.

Best way I could phrase it: TOS are simple and mostly about privacy; this is just a network of sites run by random people, not a collection of mega-corps and lawyer swarms.

It used to be that a large company running a site became a sign of stability and maturity, not something to be wary of.

@KitRedgrave that's true, and i think that the social is a net positive. i *don't* think that anything that we are doing here is very novel tho but that's par for the course in free software land i suppose

@cwebber

I like your effort of creating the vibe of collaboration! :)

...but, still here comes critic:
You're pushing the focus in this toot to 2 protocols while there are more.
is solving issues from . this makes ppl more believe that in future it will be all around ActivityPub.

That's not very engaging for those working on 'other sides' for federated networks

so the local timeline is comprised of toots from users on _this_ server (and its rules,) while the federated timeline is toots from all followed users on other servers (and their respective server rules) or am i misunderstanding?

.@MissMacSee i think i follow--so are federated rules always the same as home rules? or could mastodon.social federate with a server with expanded/different rules?

@gargron
always remember you're part of something (even) bigger then .
it's the and among many plattforms and among many ppl developing them.

As better we work together as better the fesiverse will be :)

Since this is way over my head, I figured I can share it at least to help facilitate some discussion:

" with
There has been only a small amount of talk about this previously, but I wanted to bring up discussion of Federation with IndieWeb. This includes all the installs of Known, Micro.blog, and a number of other smaller sites (some 2300)."

if i could interject for a moment, what you are referring to as "invention" is actually "improvement", you see #mastodon is actually an implementation of the #ostatus protocol that has also been implemented by gnu/social, hubzilla, and others. these make up a wider social network known as the #federation.

Oh, shit, #Uber's board looks to be maneuvering out their founder!

After chatting with folks from #UnionCab #coop in #Madison, I've been getting to thinking at a #Federation of #workercoop cab companies with a shared #platformcoop app might just be the way to take on the "ridesharing" behemoths once the #VC $ starts to run dry... #deleteuber
