There's some takes about the open social Web that I'm realizing are results of the trenches of centralization in how people think people should interact. Globalism (or at least forcing everyone to be subject to a set of approved communication standards) wasn't the way. It erased dozens of cultures and forces us to reintroduce them through a colonial lens. If anything, we should focus on building region-specific networks, overlayed with topic-centric ones and simplify the ability of us to form (and disband) groups. From there, it's golden, IMO.

Engagement is powered by Webmentions — a premier standard of the Web to let other sites know you've mentioned them. Learn how to reply from your own site. or from a supported silo Aaron has an interactive post about this. If you've mentioned this URL via another one, use the form below to submit it.

I currently aim to own my comments and plan to eventually show those I've received once I finish Lighthouse.
