the is (sort of) in a Forbes article posted yesterday about @rabble and :

forbes.com/sites/michaeldelcas

its featuring a photo of @cwebber at camp and includes mentions of @staltz, @manyver_se, Dominic Tarr, , , , , Paul Frazee, and a bunch of other buzzwords that are bizarrely smashed together into an article. Still quite interesting to see this stuff in a mainstream publication.

its also posted on HN:

@humanetech this might be nice to deconstruct in a lemmy post. It makes a lot of strange assumptions about the fediverse and it might be useful to break those down to better understand how we present ourselves to the outside world. The author seemed to get confused about the federation aspect and mentioned how there were "40 mastodon social networks"

The second we talk about choosing instances we confuse the hell out of a huge portion of the population. How can we solve this social issue?

@liaizon "I cover enterprise adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency" 😬🤞

@˗ˏˋ wakest ˎˊ˗

"the #fediverse is (sort of)"



hmm... the word "fediverse" can´t be found in this article... and all the long history of free federated Networks is not mentioned :-( ...

“The software we're building, when we're building decentralized social media, when we're building new social media platforms, they need to be about people and human connection, not structuring our world through algorithms,” he says. “It's not about machine learning, or AI, generating the perfect viral media, it's about groups of people getting together and finding meaning with each other.”



from whom he has taken this ideas ?

@rockyiii nope its not mentioned directly cause the person who wrote it didnt seem to do much research about many of the topics they were talking about. They refer to 'ActivityStream' a few times and also mention "the Mastodon network" both if which are the fediverse

@liaizon

I gave a kinda nice definition not so long ago, but it is lost in my timeline :(

This earlier one goes in the direction, but not so well.. nice thread though.

@liaizon yeah this article tried to cover a lot of ground, and explain some details in the differences between all this stuff but its extremely confusingly written / the author seems confused?

@liaizon @rabble @cwebber @staltz @manyver_se My impression is that the corpo-media visionaries are looking for the holy grail, i.e. a social media model in which everything can still be monetised to the max but which neither users nor regulators will pick on for all the bad things that are happening today.

@liaizon
So funny the backwards lens that coming from cryptocurrency has given this author / article.
Apparently crowd funding for donations is "like a DAO" :/
