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.

thinking about how this works with the open web, I imagine your profile could plug into other blogging and photo-sharing backends, like @pixelfed or any photo-sharing silos that offer enough open data access

in the fediverse, I'm not sure if this means creating a simple frontend, or if implements the client-to-server protocol, and acts as the client 🤔

profiles are still early; I'd like them to showcase both your @write_as posts and @snap_as photos in one place. then of course everyone can comment on photos, too boosted

Maybe you'll be able to comment on @write_as and @snap_as posts here. Would that be cool? boosted boosted boosted

Comments and conversations are coming to @write_as soon! Today, we just rolled out our new landing page:

Getting a bit closer to making some moves here. We plan to start by allowing email responses to your @write_as newsletters.

Low-tech at first, your responses would go straight to the author via email. But then we can potentially allow you to receive those responses through the web app. boosted

Are there any blog commenting systems made for different kinds of conversations? E.g. "I enjoyed this." vs. "Could you clarify?" vs. "Here's an essay on why you're wrong..."

I feel like all systems are just a variation on: "here's a text box, and here's everything anyone has entered into it in relation to this post." (Decentralized version only adds: "here's what people said elsewhere.") boosted
