just said something in a comment to a different post
that i have been thinking about since i came here, to the #federation
Being new to Hubzilla feels much like diaspora was 8 years ago and G+ when it first started. Nice atmosphere, everyone feeling like they were making a difference, contributing to the development regardless of their level of expertise. Sometimes seeing things from an end-user perspective can give you new insight.
i get this feeling a little less on #diaspora
, even though #hubzilla
is the older one. but on D* there are many more users and things have settled a bit more into habit and roles. that's not a bad thing at all, but this feeling of being in a new environment that's still finding it's way and place in the world is something special.
another reason, apart from the lower member count, is that hubzilla isn't just one thing
but a whole suit or framework that can do much more than just iddle chatter: websites, wiki pages, different channels or identities for different audiences, and all using the same distributed permissions scheme. i don't see how this will get boring before i get too old to do this stuff.
i fervently hope that the dev's of all federation and fediverse projects will come to understand that it's vitally important that all these different apps can talk to each other
