Wanted to offer this news of a new Mastodon social network instance that has a humane design and open web focus. It is brand new, and so far “vanilla” Mastadon set up. But I’d offer it as a place to build out principles and technologies of Humane Design, just as we are also integrating and building in other open web and defederated tech. And as it is Mastodon, no algorythims pushing additive content, no ad tech monitoring or pushing.
Anyone on Mastodon is welcome to follow; anyone not on Mastodon but who wants to join in, is welcome to join this instance.
We are also amplifying the Humane Tech Mastadon account as one key one to follow.
Here is the announcement of the launch:
INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is a #Mastodon-based Fediverse instance that is a home for those who build, study, promote - or are just fascinated by - a wide variety of #openweb, #indieweb, #federated and #humanetech practices and technologies.
We seek to promote innovation and shared evolution and promotion of such technologies as well as to offer this instance itself as a platform to experiment with integration and early implementations of these.
We will build out here what we hope to see elsewhere: offerings to federate, interoperate, and build bridges to transition in parallel. And to encourage an open, cross platform discussion of how to support and build this together across many diverse projects and technologies.
You can join here if you do not already have an account on another Mastodon instance:
