What is silo quits
#
Loqi
silo quits are public statements by individuals announcing they have publicly quit posting on or using (at all) various silos, either with intended permanence, or temporarily (sometimes referred to as taking a "social media break") https://indieweb.org/silo-quits

I think threaded messages are flattened. So people on IRC lose context. At least that is how I remember it.

I was thinking about plurality this morning in relation to Conway's Law... are we collectively creating something slightly non-plural, just at a higher level, given our mutual collaboration and inter-operation?
#
[eddie]
What is Conway’s Law?
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "Conway’s Law" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "Conway’s Law is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
[eddie]
That was to chrisaldrich, not you, Loqi
#
[eddie]
Ohhh thanks :)
#
chrisaldrich
Though in some sense, the widely distributed nature of the way we interact via chat and the wiki somewhat mirrors the way in which the web exists.... so perhaps we're organizing in a way that creates what we're aiming for?
#
chrisaldrich
In some sense I'm wondering what things will look like decades hence based on decisions we make today....
KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
[eddie]
I think we are creating something singular-ish at a higher level. But I think our willingness to inter-operate with other technology like rss and jsonfeeds for our readers helps the plurality angle
#
chrisaldrich
It'll take some thinking to come up with examples of this, but certainly an idea worth considering.

#
[kevinmarks]
I had some of tat discussion again on twitter yesterday
#
@kevinmarks
@amyjokim @stevesi That's the point I made in http://j.mp/twittertheory - the Web and blogs scaled because they were comfortable with multiple parallel semi overlapping publics. Engagement chasing creates too much positive feedback and it's like a runaway amplifier - all howlround.

“the Twitter system doesn’t recognize that it’s encouraging people to follow additional extremist accounts, and Facebook’s Groups engine doesn’t understand why directing conspiracy theorists to new conspiracy communities is possibly a bad idea.” https://www.wired.com/story/creating-ethical-recommendation-engines/ #Indieweb

what is a recommendation engine
#
Loqi
A recommendation engine is software or a service that recommends things to people based on their behavior or people that have behaved like them in the past, like the features of sites that say things like people that bought this also bought that, or liked, or followed, etc https://indieweb.org/recommendation_engine

So aaronpk and cleverdevil, your reader demos recently were awesome. Want myself! Tolerant of duct tape :-) What do I need to do to replicate this for a new site?
#
aaronpk
if you can manage to get Aperture and Watchtower running (dgold has some good instructions!), then you can sign in to Together and Monocle!
#
aaronpk
this is not for the faint of heart right now though
#
aaronpk
though at this point Aperture is relatively stable, I'm using it every day, and I'm also not planning on doing another major development sprint on it for a month or two
#
aaronpk
so maybe i should polish up the installation process a bit in advance of the godaddy post going out
