SocialHub and Spiral Island: A Fediverse Foundation Analogy
Spiral Island was created by Richart Sowa from stuff other people considered trash. An inspiring symbol of sustainability and hope, it was nonetheless destroyed by a hurricane. Richart’s work in a way mirrors how we build our beloved Fediverse… but we must prepare to be hurricane-proof… See also Wikipedia: Spiral Island The people that are passionately advocating and building the Fediverse… They are a friendly bunch from all around the world having very diverse backgrounds and leading inte...

You 💖 love Fediverse, right? It’s vibrant unique culture and the lovely people you meet. You want to protect it, increase its beauty, see more applications interoperate seamlessly. You know that you are part of a ‘reimagining of social networking’ that is much needed, as traditional social media are destroying the fabric of society.

What you may not know is that:

  • The Fediverse is still incredibly weak. That it has a tiny community of technologists that evolve it, and that this process is stalling as people are absorbed in their own projects. (“The Tragedy of the Grassroots Movement?”)

  • That what Fediverse currently offers is just the tiny tip of the iceberg. That humongous potential still lies dormant, waiting to be explored. That we can go way beyond microblogging features that dominate the fedi now.

  • That YOU are instrumental in tapping this potential, and that you don’t have to be a techie to help with that.

At SocialHub community we come together to improve the Fediverse, evolve its standards and the ecosystem. And regardless of your skills and expertise we need all the help we can get to move forwards, to progress this thing we love.

Throw off your individualism and become a fedi builder. It’s a win-win for all. We are ‘United in Diversity’ and should build together. Join SocialHub as member and interact. And also join Fediverse Futures on Lemmy to brainstorm on exciting ideas.

We are Spiral Island still, and can become a sprawling archipelago.

Social Media Reimagined

This is a companion to Fediverse Futures on SocialHub to elaborate the Fediverse from high-level, non-technical perspectives, brainstorming our visions and dreams.

We need a more holistic approach to fedi development and evolution. We need product designers, graphics artists, UX / UI / Interaction designers, futurists and visionaries to join the dev folks. Everyone is encouraged to join here and enrich our views on what Fediverse can be with diverse and different viewpoints, and to stimulate brainstorming, creativity, thinking out-of-the-box and crazy, wild ideas.

Some guidelines

  • Choose a descriptive title that speaks for itself.
  • Be substantive in your comments and stay on-topic.
  • Treat others as you want to be treated, respectful.
  • Don’t be overly critical, we are just brainstorming.
