Start Collaborating on Write.as https://video.writeas.org/videos/watch/b06b3bac-44ee-41a1-b445-333541183575
We've got all the basics there, but there's still plenty of design questions to answer as far as team structures, how granular permissions need to be, and how to make this work across all of our composable projects.
We're keeping everything on Write.as for now so we can iterate faster and worry less about wrong assumptions. But when it's ready, we'll bring it into #WriteFreely to give everyone the same ability to create collaborative blogs.
After several months of work, I'm excited to launch collaborative publishing on @write_as!
#introduction hi everybody, just arrived on the fediverse, no idea how to be here yet but somehow feels nice
i'm also bad introducing myself, let's say i write, even though i don't like considering myself a writer, even worse an author, although technically i guess i do both things
i write in italian as it is my mother tongue, here i will have fun with both eng and ita
Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”
-> a small rant about how the profit lens distorts our understanding of success vs. failure:
Hey all, good to be here. I'm a career programmer, but I've been writing on the side for a couple years.
Lately I've been working on a post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi comedy, which is a thinly-veiled way to tell some of the bizarre stories I've experienced as a contractor, in a meaningful and hopefully non-litigable way.
In my spare time I enjoy reading and metalworking.
Ask me anything! I probably won't answer in a satisfying way, but you're welcome to try!
Hello, strangers. I'm Ana Rosa, a brazilian young writer, who buy more books than can read - as any normal person does. Training my english, sorry for any mistakes. :)
I work as copywriter freelancer, and I'm currently studying archetypes, storytelling and tarot (?), for some side projects. Oh, and writing a fiction about angels, humans and all the things between.
I also have another "me" on mastodon, for general things. Thank you for accepting me here. Ahoy.
Social media has shown the need for different kinds of interactions around content online. But "likes" are cheap and poisonous, chat isn't connected to content, and all platforms still stop at: "here's all the replies" 🤷
Are there any blog commenting systems made for different kinds of conversations? E.g. "I enjoyed this." vs. "Could you clarify?" vs. "Here's an essay on why you're wrong..."
I feel like all systems are just a variation on: "here's a text box, and here's everything anyone has entered into it in relation to this post." (Decentralized version only adds: "here's what people said elsewhere.")
The other part is trying to normalize the @firstname.lastname@example.org syntax with everyday users. Everyone knows how to mention "@handle". This could be a gentle way to introduce them to the idea that a "@handle" can exist on different sites.
