Since most people had to go through multiple steps to signup for this instance, I'm wondering how many here also support The Liturgist Patreon.

@zach I'm on patreon and slack. This still confuses me to no end. It's like I'm communicating with the void instead of people...

@Findsilence @zach Sorry it hasn't been a great experience so far! Is there any questions you had in particular? It takes a while to get used to the platform but it's pretty excellent once you get going.

@sandrockcstm @Findsilence @zach speaking for myself: it’s unnerving for me because it has the initial appearance of being a “closed” (or perhaps “unlisted”) community since you sign up at a particular instance, but somehow everything you write is not only accessible outside that community but indeed highly visible or discoverable. It feels like a slack or message board but is actually like Twitter.

@sandrockcstm @Findsilence @zach and as a software professional, I have a decent idea of how decentralized distributed systems work! I can’t imagine what it’s like for everyone so used to centralized services that they’ve never once even thought of them in terms of being centralized, because what would the conceivable alternative be?

I'm a patron, but the unofficial Slack community (in addition to the gathering I went to) seems to be the only way I have been actually able to really connect deeply with people. I've meet several IRL and it's been great.

This platform bothers me. I don't like its lack of privacy. Is Twitter public also? or can you set it to be friends only like Facebook?

Friends or followers only would be okay... maybe... but do I really want to do that again?

Follow

@amal @brettdh @sandrockcstm @Findsilence Twitter is open to all users unless you set your account to private then it's only the people who you allow to follow you.
