Building on pain points and problems that we're trying to solve that were mentioned in the session:
"Your thoughts. Your words. Your photos. Your voice - It's your content, keep it." (I didn't catch who said that last phrase)
I almost see it like a owning a digital lending library. You decide who gets to check out, or borrow, your content (silo) but it's still available for everyone to read.
Things IndieWeb can help with
I feel we should call out and address hurdles that Gen2 and above face and can get frustrated with:
- Silo algorithm changes (what they show you in their "reader" / "stream" / "news feed")
- Obstruction of sharing between "silos" from within
- Can be, or become, "unfindable" by Google & Bing
- Will still be available if you leave, or are forced to leave
- Will still be available if they close
- Will still be around if they change business model (Medium)
Also, some things that we should start avoiding as we offer a helping hand outside our community:
- Do not call them silos. Name them. People don't think of Facebook and Twitter as a "silo"
- Do not hide that Instagram won't let you publish from "outside"
- Do not use the term "dogfooding" - People outside tech don't get it. Sounds gross ;-)
- Does this help with security?
- Does it cost (money)? An allure is the "free-ness" of silo's
- Does it cost (time)?
- It does not just work (at the moment)
- Will it make sense when syndicated? Looks like a Facebook post/Tweet.
