In one month (the 27th of August to be exact), the project will be run by the community for one year. I think it could be great to use this date to relaunch communication. At the moment, most articles in the web say bad news about diaspora: project dead, nothing new for years, abandoned by founders… Vice did a big and really complete article one year ago, it would be cool to re-contact them to update it to have a happier end.
If we could have the diasporafoundation.org website finished and polished, and a big new feature like “diaspora federation is available as a ruby gem, talk with diaspora directly with your application” by the end of August, it would be awesome.
We could make an announcement on the blog with a nice image, I’m sure this will be token by the whole media.
So, we need to:
- Polish and complete the diasporafoundation website
- Finish, package and test the federation gem (it doesn’t need to be integrated to diaspora at the moment)
- Prepare an announcement
- Make nice images to do the buzz
- Make a list of media we should contact
I think we should involved the diaspora* community: there is a lot of artists and web dev on diaspora we can contact to help us, at least with the images and maybe with the website.
We could post a message with diasporaHQ: “In one month, it’s the first anniversary of the community run diaspora, we want to do the buzz, so every artist here, express yourself about it, make images, gifs, movies, everything you want, and prepare yourself to spread the word the 27th of August! We especially need a “banner” like
What do you think guys, are you ready to make this happens before the 27th of August?
