Scary

I was just thinking about how the bluebird social network was rebranded, and how it now feels legitimate to give it a place in the museum of dead social networks...

The people of the future, on the decentralized, anticommercial web, will have to study about the brief phase where there were only centralized and monetized platforms which will be a concept so foreign and ridiculous to them

@ErikUden Tbh, that's how I feel about the idea of AOL Desktop v.s. just using a web browser ๐Ÿ˜ณ

So this scenario could very well be the case, if Mastodon pulls through and becomes ever-more popular ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

@ErikUden I think decentralized social networks should get government funding. That is some good use of taxpayer money. I think it's comparable to building roads, it's infrastructure.

So you predict that X will die. I think Musk by making weird changes and rebranding will just kill off Twitter. It may end up as it was with Google+ (whose functionality I liked), or it will remain just a medium for militant politicians, which also means the end.

#mastodon #twitter #x

link David Revoy Author, - Reply
davidrevoy

@darekpages My illustration is not about the end of X but the murder of Twitter by X and so, the end of Twitter.

I left Twitter in April and when I announced it you could still see some warm feelings , especially in my illustration of the moment ( davidrevoy.com/article964/good , ) .

But now with the rebranding, I really feel the place I knew between 2010 to 2023 with all I learned on it is definitely changed and so, Tw belong to the museum of G+, Orkut, Freenode and Myspace (I was on the four).

I see. The most, worst thing is that different social media actually fight each other, different communication protocols make the user exclusive. The lack of this universality of communication precludes exchange between them. I heard there's a new medium in the making: Blue something, similar to Mastodon. Lovely illustration! But disturbing, sad.

davidrevoy

@darekpages You probably refer to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluesky_ ; but there is nothing similar to Mastodon in it. As far as I can see, it's proprietary, with investors, so expect it will get monetized aggressively by adv, data mining, or anything like that after a free period that will serve only to bring in the Bluesky boat the new adopters and an audience.

@potatoxel It's a partial proprietary code dump; and mostly a bash script that downloads from a distant server an environment or executable run as sudo. ๐Ÿคข The repo also has no License mentioned ๐Ÿคข , so certainly not something Free/Libre.

Conclusion: mmm ... Yes. I had a doubt at first, but this is the smell of corporate ๐Ÿ’ฉ

But I'm an artist, not an expert. I'm surprised that just a Github repository is enough nowadays to ethic-FLOSS-bleach any project.

@Whidou regarding the images in the back (freenode โ€ฆ): did you notice that the Founder of Freenet recently decided to use the name Freenet for his new non-privacy-related crypto-contract system?

We had to rename to #HyphaNet due to that.

@ArneBab @Whidou I'm still annoyed about name takeover, primarily because some of the primitives provided by Locutus and Hyphanet are very different (CRDT-likes vs SSKs) and taking over the name is bound to cause confusion, especially with old documentation floating around.

I'm just now noticing the photos in the backgroundโ€ฆ Google+ and freenode hit close to home (the former because I followed a lot of Android engineers there, the latter because I'm involved in some open source projects who had migrate from freenode to Libera Chat/etc).

Overall, well done! And, sadly, I suspect this museum will continue to grow.

@digitalfox Thanks. Yes, I was also very affected by G+ closing, it was at that time my account with the most connections to contributors and audience of my webcomic (Pepper&Carrot was pretty new at that time). I remember I followed also many pages and accounts I never saw anywhere else after.

Same for Freenode to Libera; but in this case, the migration happened so quickly and Libera team really supported 1:1 features that nothing was lost in the process for me and all went almost smooth.

digitalfox@yip.vulpine.engineer

Ah, I didn't realize you had a strong audience on G+ - that is rather unfortunate.

Agreed on Freenode to Libera. I hope how relatively smoothly that went is a positive sign of how we'll move on should a major fediverse instance become hostile.

Regardless, I'm glad you seem to be finding a new audience, one that is - hopefully - harder to have taken away from you.

(Aside, I realized I still have your MyPaint brushes saved, some from V3, and I've used a tweak of V6 "soft-dip-pen" for most of my drawings to this day. I don't think I ever said this, so, thank you!)
