When a new user joins a social network, their connection must be to their peers, their existing social relationships. A new user can only be onboarded in the context of relationships already on the network.
Okay, just deployed a new version of Lwa . It comes with a lot of new little features but only direct replies work, lol. I'm refactoring how reactions work so you can properly syndicate them when desired. That'll personally help me syndicate a link to the Fediverse or Twitter when needed. I'm also going to add some general UX cleanup and begin working on the subscription components so Lwa can allow you to subscribe to content you see in your reader. Soon Aaron Parecki , you'll have one less user on Aperture! When my Microsub implementation works, the only thing I think I'll be leaning on you for is perhaps Watchtower and that's only until I finish Bondye (yet another project)! Viva la IndieWeb! Lol
I look at it as:
- The goal for 3.0 was to increase the speed an order of magnitude, and set the stage for future increases
- The goal for 3.1 was to create a single port to accommodate the need for devices like mobile phones and tablets to work without product-specific adapters
1/ There are so many people I enjoy following and talking with on here. And so many people I don’t think I would have come across otherwise. But hanging out and @indiewebcamp made me remember how exciting small, intimate, and mission-oriented groups are.
@indiewebcamp San Francisco had a really good first day. Got a chance to talk about design, #Vouch https://indieweb.org/Vouch and more processes around helping people connect to one another with safety in mind.
