Who’s birthday is around now? We can declare it international fedivangelism day.

Doesn’t mean done successfully, just that you tried.

I’ll go first:

Ive asked like 140 ppl irl if they have a mastodon acct, which usually gets them to say “mastodon?” Then I strike. So like 75 ppl more know the basics of mastodon, but 0 sign ups yet.

Like 20 of them are random guys approaching me and I cock block by telling them to add me to mastodon. You’d hope theyd actually be interested enough to sign up. This is also a lpt lol.

@humanetech@lemmy.ml I fully intend to write this down in my calendar once we have a date picked

Ha, nice idea. You can add the Fedivangelism Day to Fediverse Wiki by @PaulaToThePeople@climatejustice.social … dunno if a page exists, but there’s other Fedi Celebration Days, like the Fedi Birthday where @lightone@mastodon.xyz always creates a great surprise around (this year it was the Fedi Quiz done together with @minoru@functional.cafe).

For me this was a year of promoting Fediverse in all kinds of ways. I am most interested in seeing fedi reach its full potential as a “social fabric”, and my vision is the Peopleverse: An online social space that is a natural extension to our physical world and daily lives. I call what I do Weaving in Public in hopes to inspire and bring people closer together.

Haven’t created pages myself yet. You might ping Paula, or post to Fediverse Town which is related to the wiki.

I dig it. Zuck has said something similar too. What’s your take on his interpretation?

My take is that we shouldn’t care a rat’s ass what Zuck says and doesn’t say ;p

The Fediverse stands on its own. Other than both words end on “verse” there’s no relationship. Metaverse sounds cold and heartless to me, dehumanized. The vision is dystopic too, a future where we’ll bump into each other with stupid VR goggles on, while walking aimlessly in virtual hellscapes where Zuck is our overlord :D

Haha sounds good!

This is a good kind of a cockblock because the person isn’t even getting exploited by getting a mastodon account, they’re rather getting “freed”

Fedivangelism is a portmanteau of “fediverse” and “evangelism”.

The purpose of this community is to provide a space where those interested in seeing federated platforms succeed can collaborate to help grow the ecosystem.
