I need a new social network. I’m tired of Twitter and Reddit. I’ve been off Facebook for years. For a few years I was really happy on Tent, but the small community there has shrunk to the point where sometimes days go by with nothing posted at all.
I want a social network where the motivations of the creators align with the users. I want my data to be in an open format that I own, not a silo that someone else owns. I want a community that is open to sharing an interacting with ideas, even ones they don’t agree with.

Now I just need to figure out how to pick one. For now I will try to set up cross-posting from this blog to as many of them as possible, and use each a little bit to see which I like best.
