2021 was the #YearOfTheFedivere, 2022 will be

…the dawn of a new hashtag.

In the Fediverse and in https://fediverse.town we discussed hashtags for 2022 a bit. We made a poll and these are the top 5 candidates.

Now it’s your turn to pick out one.

  • FediVision2022
  • FediVolution2022
  • JustGoFedi
  • FederateNow
  • FediverseRising

None of these have change/challenge in them, what’s the plan/ideas to not get the fedi cooped when meaninglessly fluffy has no defence, you do need a balance, and you need a bridge, where is the balance.

Why we always need to build in change/challenge to our tech projects.

“it’s decentralised and then scooped up centralised again, a capture”

Dogmatic #fluffy are the assholes of progressive tech as are the dogmatic #spiky crew.

Build bridges, compost.

Yesterday I was inspired to a new hashtag, and bringing Agency into the mix. Agency is what we lose to corporations more and more, and agency is what we have the opportunity to regain on the Fediverse by working together on this social fabric of ours. And create a peopleverse, not some cold-hearted metaverse.

Fediverse is the social #WebOfAgency where people interact on the basis of humanity.


Agency (philosophy):

  • the capacity of an actor to act in a given environment.
  • an individual engaging with the social structure.

Agency (sociology):

  • the capacity of individuals to act independently and to make their own free choices.
  • one’s independent capability or ability to act on one’s will.

It has both fluffy and spiky in it. A call to action, and a realization that a Web of Agency is what fedizens hold in their hands.

The is a bridge needed here, you might find this interesting/useful http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/12/26/a-conversation-on-the-geekproblem/

On the subject of this, thried its interesting to observe how #hashtags embed ideologies.

Counter cultures/sub cultures can’t be ONLY #mainstreaming they have to talk to themselves more/as much as they outreach its a balancing thing.

Just for shits and giggles I quick-created 2 images with some of the above hashtags:
