I'm running a day long workshop at Radical Networks in NYC Oct 18 -- it's about how to run a small social network site for a small community. We're going to be making a (probably temporary) fediverse server for the "community" of our classroom and navigating all the social issues that arise when people with only surface things in common (like "we got tickets for this workshop") try to make an online space for themselves. https://radicalnetworks.org/participants/darius-kazemi/
@darius I'm so sad I'm going to miss this! I love Radical Networks, and I've started setting up an instance after reading your article, but I recently moved away from NYC. I'd love to join the workshop's instance if you open it up to remotes.
@intherain oh I'm sad you can't make it!! But also I'm really happy you read my article and started setting something up!
