Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.
A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."
People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.
Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
The first live performance at the Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house in Barcelona, newly reopened after coronavirus lockdowns. A string quartet gave a performance of Puccini’s Crisantemi to an audience of 2292 plants. As you can see from the pictures, it was a full house, because plants have excellent taste, obviously. The plants were later adopted by healthcare workers.
I'm running a short research survey on Mastodon usage for a graduation paper on alternative social networks. Your input will hopefully help me introduce new concepts to media studies in Poland.
Please fill this survey and share with your friends, especially if you know some scholars involved in this topic!
Thank you all for your inputs. In the meantime, I have defined my goals for my note-taking process, which are:
- Build a knowledge base for my future
- Share my knowledge and points of view with other people
- Improve my English skills
That said, my native language (French) will continue to be used to reinforce complex ideas if necessary.
It's time to Zettelkasten everything :-)
I've started a zettelkasten a bit more than one month ago. It's life-changing. I wish I had heard about this note-taking method 20 years ago. I could have written down and organized so many ideas in meaningful and useful ways...
I'm already seeing so many connections and possibilities that my mind is bursting with activity. It's a fantastic introspective tool. If you're wondering what the hell it's about, here's best the article I've found on the topic: https://writingcooperative.com/zettelkasten-how-one-german-scholar-was-so-freakishly-productive-997e4e0ca125

My redesigned personal website is now online. Very minimal content at this point - I mainly wanted to get at least one item in each section before launching.
Lots more tweaks to be made but I'm stoked about how it has come together. Now I feel like I have a solid foundation for further sharing.
We're leaving Japan in the morning, to sail across the North Pacific ocean to Vancouver Island. We will be at sea for the next 7 weeks. You can track our position here:
