On point 5, I read that article that the comment links to! It’s focused more on local papers and news and does point out a majority of papers that folded were weeklies and hobby magazines, not so much daily news tho those in rural areas did fold too.

I’d think we’d need to find the nonprofit news digital papers already and try to team up and support, or offer something not already seen. Personally I still haven’t found the international news I would like to see, and if anything that could be cool…users write articles in their own language and other translate it to their language. So someone in India for example writing about the farmers protests can get it translated for an international audience.

the local events thing and talking about news makes me think of Facebook’s attempt to make local news feeds for users. It failed since there really are news deserts out there, as in there are no sources of news, political or otherwise.

Your comment also made me think of Mobilizon I think it’s called. The federated meet up site? Deliver local news via events from there; host event then someone writes up an article based on it.

But you’re right, news isn’t just politics! At the news station I work at we report on lots of nonpolitical and noncriminal things like cool art projects, events, and 100 year old birthdays!

It really does need updates, but yeah it is an events website, but covering events can be an extention of it so you search for events before they happen, then after they happen, there is a feed covering what happened locally.

Adore these ideas, @Gwynne. Your take on the Fediverse here, is a much needed perspective. The potential of fedi is enormous, and much or even most of it remains untapped. While with 4 million fedizens (500k active) we have achieved much, there is still a fragility and weakness to fedi that I am concerned about. The decentralization that is our friend, is also inhibiting evolution, as much activity is very fragmented.

At SocialHub I have started a #FediverseFutures initiative to look at the broader view of what we can possibly create together, and to attract more people to the community other than ActivityPub devs.

I thought of making another community for fediverse projects is a good idea since some user said /c/fediverse was a catch-all-bin for fediverse content.

I have just created !fediversefutures@lemmy.ml and would love to invite you to be a part of it, for exactly these kinds of discussions. I see this as a space where we muse, fantasize, brainstorm and explore the wildest ideas that might be in our decentralized online future. “Social Media Reimagined” is the slogan I’ve chosen for this. The FediverseFutures on Lemmy will be a staging ground for things that can be further elaborated on SocialHub in the Fediverse Futures category.

Goal is to have an ideation space Where Good Ideas Come From


  • On 2: Fedi advocacy. So important. Would love to evaluate how we can make this a concerted effort. Do stuff together :)
  • On 3: This is Fediverse Futures on SocialHub right now --> explore different app domains, go way beyond Microblogging
  • On 4: Hugely interested. I have ideas along these lines myself. You can reach me at @humanetech@mastodon.social
  • On 5: This is the idea transfer from Lemmy to SocialHub I imagine, finally collected in sort of a Pattern Library.

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.

Getting started on Fediverse;
