A proposed convention for engaging with write.as posts on the fediverse:

slackz.co/write-as-engagement

@slackz This is a brilliant idea. I had heard about remark.as but this is genius.

I've been using Medium less and less ever since they gated content behind a paywall. It even put me off writing there for a while. So I've been looking at Write.as as a new platform but was a bit worried over lack of engagement. Thanks for the tip!

@digitalgyoza write.as is an awesome tool and community. Matt, the author/maintainer already has direct federation support, but I've found the convention mentuoned in this most usable since it is linked to an account I am active on and can reply to comments / moderate, etc (since it's hosted as opposed to just broadcasting to AP subscribers)

Thanks for motivation to finally make another post on there. Has been busy but def wanna update it :)

@digitalgyoza meant to cc @matt but Lie-Fi had the username autocomplete lagging.

Thanks again for all your work on the project Matt :)

@slackz @matt

Quick question, hope you don't mind. How for the life of me do I get images I'm hosting elsewhere to centre on blog posts? I've tried just about any html and markdown approach I can find and nothing works. All stay aligned left.

@slackz @matt

Never mind! Think i cracked it. Needed to use div and add width = 100%..

@digitalgyoza @slackz Ah, cool. We should definitely make that easier.. Might be able to build in a CSS class you could use that would do all of this for you.

@slackz Took me a little while to get the links right, but think I managed to implement this too?!

OrgSpace

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.

Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.

Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
