@[email protected], to be honest your linked post is misleading.

Jason might be super-left but this is no takeover - everyone is free to make their own version of node directory or something like that and list nodes on any criteria they want. At least this one clearly lists theirs.
Man you people are like the "archaics" that every possible good gets f**king censored or "murdered" before it has any chance of contributing to genuine positive change.

I use "SocialHome" and in terms of posting, privacy, deleting content.... diaspora has to step up to the mark.... "Old women and old men and old ideas" direct evolution into "STAGNATION"

Then there is also "WISDOM" in some ancient ideas - though - the wisdom is more in discovering what is beneficial now, in this situation, circumstance, future because nothing is totally "right or wrong" - just more beneficial or less beneficial according to time, place, circumstances, politics, future etc

I salute Jason of course there are things about socialhomeHQ I would also like to see improve/evolve - volunteers vs private/corporate funding has not been an advantage for the federation

This doco feels totally relevant to this thread and the process of evolution... they mastered teamwork and stepping out into developing your own unique gifts/talents to benefit something bigger than each and all of them :D Cheers

I know nothing about coding though I do salute genius and evolution for things that matter and hopefully master the rapids to EVOLVE into AMAZING & EXCELLENT "people EMPOWERED" alternative networks, tools, apps etc

How can letting go of our egos contribute to this thread of evolution?

The “If you don’t like it build your own” MEME is a fase narrative.

They say the exact same thing about Facebook.

A Platform was created for people.

Along the way – it was grabbed by the left.

The LEFT says, if you don’t like it – build your own.

If you DO build your own; the left then BLOCKS ALL OTHERS from seeing you.

JUST.LIKE.MASTODON->GAB.

If all of the developers of diaspora, the core platform, now profess #marxist, #SJW positions; how well will they interoperate with a free forked platform? Why must the free side even have to do this at all?

The Idea of the federation is to, um, federate entities together -- not to have some faction decide to chop off and isolate half.

I smell something deeper here; with a divide and conquer mentality.

And Jason Robinson is part of it.
@prep I suspect this comes from your own unowned subconscious fears.... There is no such thing as progress without mistakes and something I'm getting better at making ok for this "self" is that "mistakes" are how we learn, how progress happens for good or not - base line "Jason" is not the "evil" you need to fear - the "evil you need to fear" resides within your own heart and mind and that is the most difficult to WEED to extract and it is also the most AMAZING TRANSFORMER! (should you choose to discover and transform it?)

Of course there was the CLASH OF EGOS in their evolution... (Genesis that is)

I already acknowledge that you and many may not understand anything of what I speak and that too is ok... because there are those who do and they are the ones I write this for.
Along the way – it was grabbed by the left.
How exactly is it grabbed by the left? I see that the platform remains pretty much neutral. Everyone can bring up a node and there is no central authority. It is not like the platform can disable any nodes or formally forbids their creation.

Services like https://the-federation.info are not critical and they are not even necessary. I wonder if most users even know about them.

Main problem with Diaspora is that the servers tend to get too large so the model turns less federative and more like semi-centristic with all related problems.

Comparison with Facebook is false however. Facebook on the other hand doesn't have neutral platform. You can't put up your own service and they can and do police even third-party products. They own and control their protocol. Diaspora doesn't.
