beyond this, you'll see ways to interact with your favorite blogs, depending on their capabilities
this should help you keep track of your friends and yet-to-be-friends, wherever they may live on the web
so I did finish it but then I had to go. check out your home page — you'll find something new 😊
one day I will stream a coding session like this and achieve maximum engagement. today is not one of those days
the open web will be remarked upon
we'll probably never reach that dream of a user-programmable social space. but it is a constant inspiration
that is, until this is all built and then included in @writefreely, so anyone can create and run their own hangout spot, with its own norms, governance, etc.
it's all working toward independence for creators, plus small, self-governing communities.
the idea is:
creators keep their choice of tool, ownership of their data, and independence (including using their own domain name), and
hanging out happens in one convenient hangout spot.
the big question to answer is what makes sense to centralize vs. decentralize.
people "don't want" to visit websites these days; they want a single convenient platform. cool, so that's what this service offers.
but the underlying sources of content and information -- the tools and platforms you use to *create* content can be anything you want.
