IndieWebCamp, SF 2019
Session: Discoverability, Aggregation, & Heterogeneity
When: 2019-12-07 11:40



Anchor Points on Social Media:

  • People - we know how to do that: follow, not follow, ban
  • Topics -- we don't know how to do that (well)
  • Economy -- how many "likes" can somebody issue

Different types of Likes

Thesis: "If we had the ability to locally innovate in algortihms (e.g. on your own IndieWeb site) we'd not see a lot of the problems that (centralized) social media has today"

  • If people had a variety of tools for implenting algorithms on their own site, they'd likely have a number of options and could change the freely at will so that they could find what suits them at the time.
    • I'm in line at the grocery store and want to catch up on some quick photos
    • I've got an hour or two to sit and actively read longer pieces
    • I want to spend 30 minutes scanning bookmarks to find something to read later in the day.
    • What has my family been up to this week
    • What is happening with regard to my hobbies x,y,z
