welcome friends!

First, you should read our about page: riverside.camp/about/more. This is a work in progress: if something about it bothers you, let's talk about it!

I'd love to schedule a short phone call with each of you. I can tell you about:
- mastodon (if you're not familiar with federation)
- the extra features our server has access to,
- what my goals are in creating this place

I can also walk through the list of everyone on the server and introduce you to folks you don't recognize!

!! Today is hike day! It’s gonna be a bit wet, but I’m really looking forward to it 🏞

truly did not anticipate the sheer power of nonsense bits that would result from having both of my girlfriends in the same place

! It’s been a struggle to be able to feel like myself and to have self-confidence recently, and I haven’t really been able to figure out how to break out of that cycle. It’s making it harder to be creative or flirty or adventurous.

I’m hoping it’ll start getting better when I get away from my terrible roommate in the spring and instead live with the girlfriends

hey if you are stressed at how dirty it is and you are thinking about sweeping are you....broominating

It’s interesting because there’s three classes of stakeholder here: the maintainers/workers, the content-producers, and the subscribers. You’d need to be very thought about how you divide power, and particularly how the maintainers and producers stay accountable to each other

Thinking in full serious what it would take to build a cooperative alternative to patreon.

The software infrastructure isn’t too advanced so it’s really just a matter of organizational models and legal stuff

imagine an internet that was ran like a utility. one where it was the norm to run a little box server at your home that you run your services on (email, mastodon, file storage, etc), and there was a whole industry of unionized repair people who would come to your house and fix up your custom home server to make sure it stays safe and is working to your needs
