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.

Hey Fedifriends! :tealheart:

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 :-)

If English isn't your first language:

In which language do you write your notes? In English to be able to share them easily or in your native language to enjoy a more sophisticated vocabulary?

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:

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.

Hi Saulo,

My name is Antoine, I'm from Brussels but I live in Barcelona, and I'm following the Fab Academy at Fab Lab BCN.

I saw your presentation of @hackingecology in Valldaura and I really like your project and the way you're developing it.

I'm glad to see you on the fediverse :)

the current internet is like borges's library of babel: we have all the world's knowledge, art, and culture at our fingertips, but it's impossible to find anything of value

I guess the Maya calendar was only off by eight years. Pretty respectable if you ask me.

Any advice regarding a Linux application against procrastination? 

I used to use a macOS application called SelfControl to prevent me from visiting certain websites in order to avoid procrastination. Do you know a good alternative on Linux?
