This is the Pump visit that clicked for me. I now better understand why people are here. When the system was so new I'm not going to lie, I hated it. There are a lot more people on here now, some kinks have been worked out, & the Firehose feed has life to it. Carry on. ;)

I suggest also joining us in the fediverse/Quitter. It's just like the old days.

Reducing the number of networks will be easier once developers of federated networks actually start inter-federating with other applications.

You can't create a system that inter-operates with another hundred different systems. What's needed is a common protocol/spec.


If you have any idea on how to make everyone agree on something, go ahead and propose it =)

As you know, there is no shortage of proposals (most of which boil down to "conform to the protocol used by <application>"). What is missing is the will to make it happen.

I agree, pump.io has a lot of potential, but still needs a bit of work until it is really useful for a majority of people.

I also like StatusNet/GNU Social and especially the community there. But it isn't a zero-sum game, you can join both... and perhaps both will be joined in the future :-)
