Oh hell yeah, there’s an android app for Scuttlebutt now, time to dive back into this. Here are some bits of the Scuttlebutt Principles that really resonate with me:
Multimodal welcoming is how we on-board people via diverse connectivity modes (technological acts of inclusion) as well as with greetings (words of inclusion).
No one “signs up” but everyone is invited.
Our community is a web of friendships: relationships defined not by a follow button, but by the flexibility of subjectivity.
The edges of the social graph must extend to include all people and their diverse values, interactions, and customs.
Removing ourselves as arbiters of other communities, we must design platforms that are easy to re-design.
