miss the days when the federation actually resembled a social network of some kind.
still trying to wrap head around what exactly it is now.

I was going to post this with 'It was ten years ago today...' but I see I've already missed that anniversary:

Eben Moglen – ''

This is the talk at New York University on 5 February 2010 that inspired four students to spend their summer creating a distributed, privacy-focused social network. The Kickstarter campaign was created on 23 April, and the first diaspora\* pod was launched on 23 November. And now, ten years later, here we are.

Openbook


Quote from FAQ
Will Openbook be decentralised?
We want to get there eventually. We’re looking into Solid MIT approach (The one from Tim Berners Lee) and we’re very pleased with it so far.Our first versions will however be centralised.
We do this because it’s then easier to focus on innovating in the product features and overall user experience. These things will determine whether we’ll reach the user base necessary to take on existing social networks.
If we succeed at this, sky’s the limit into what we can do in regards to decentralisation!

Why is Openbook not a non-profit?

Making Openbook a for-profit was a hard choice to make.
We check all the non-profits boxes and we love non-profits. We love Wikipedia, the Ghost Foundation, Founders Pledge, Mozilla and many more.
However we see the same struggle repeated over and over again. These companies struggle to grow to the size and resources needed to compete with for-profit businesses.
When we need to grow, we need to be able to to raise the money needed to do so.
Therefore we are officially a for-profit company.
But do note that when we do this, we will make sure the people investing in the company will be people with real interest on the platform, its core values of privacy, security, freedom, openness and its humanitarian nature.
I have to say, these statements don't convince me....

...or

Google launches entreprise-based Social Network «Google Currents»

Google Currents is, uh, currently launching as a beta service that G Suite admins can request access to. The enterprise focus means it's for paying G Suite customers only. Google's blog post says Currents "enables people to have meaningful discussions and interactions across your organization, helping keep everyone in the know and giving leaders the opportunity to connect with their employees." Currents looks exactly like Google+, but with a new logo and maybe a slightly whiter color scheme.

Currents marks the end of the tragic story of Google+. One day, Google imagined a future where everything was social and began viewing Facebook as an existential threat. Google+ was cooked up as the answer in 2011, and then-CEO Larry Page tied every Google employee's yearly bonus to the company's success in social, basically mandating Google+ integration for every made product.

After eight years of mostly negative press, it's no wonder Google decided to change the name of Google+. This is actually the second Google app named "Google Currents." The first Google Currents was introduced in 2011 as a news magazine app, along the lines of Apple News. The first Currents was killed off in favor of Google Play Newsstand in 2014, which itself was killed off and merged with Google News in 2018. Let's see how long this version of "Google Currents" will last.

Interessanter Ansatz, das Theater als Analogie zu den sozialen Medien im Internet anzusehen.

Nach dieser Theater-Analogie nehmen wir im gesellschaftlichen sozialen Umgang Rollen ein: Kollege, Spielpartner, Arbeitnehmer, Vereinsmitglied usw. Der Autor überträgt diese Analogie auf das Netz und beklagt einen Verlust der Backstage, in dem der Umgang privateren, lockereren Regeln folgt und der offener für Regelverstöße und Tabubrüche ist.

Erster Gedanke: huch, Myspace gibt es noch?
Zweiter Gedanke: wenn ich bedenke, wie viele Künstler ticken, die ich bisher kennen gelernt habe, glaube ich, dass damit auch echt viel Musik für immer verloren ist.

Betroffen dürften Millionen Titel sein.
 
Das wird aber ziemlich aufwendig: Das Internet Archive will Google+ retten und hat damit begonnen alle öffentlichen Beträge herunterzuladen.

Internet Archive to store Google+ to assure its availability after April 2nd, 2019


It's not completely surprising that efforts would be underway to preserve Google+, but it's an unusual situation. You don't see archivists preserving a major social network (albeit one that struggled to compete) very often. The question is whether or not it will be a comprehensive record -- there isn't much time left to safeguard every last ounce of public content.

Sehr richtige Erklärung, warum ein dezentrales Social-Media Netzwerk wichtig ist. Dabei sind alle im Text aufgezählten Punkte bereits vom #Fediverse abgedeckt. Allerdings ist das dem Autor nicht bewusst zu sein, er kennt das wohl gar nicht.
