UI/UX will win with users EVERY DAMN TIME. The only way free protocols can get any mainstream traction is if the UI/UX is *as good if not better* than proprietary alternatives.
People will use Twitter, IG, Facebook, etc. for the rest of time…if the UX is way better. Period. End of discussion.
That's why Twitter's foray into open protocols is SO IMPORTANT. If they can bring their UX knowhow into the discussion, that's a GOOD THING. This can't just be libre-geek-hacker world forevermore.
Trying to think of which social networks (still) provide for open content discovery, e.g., via open standards like RSS.
Gutted the "Feeds" section of https://bahai.fyi/ and replaced it with "Discover". Ideally I'd like to group a bunch of other things under here, including image and video listings... two more things that used to exist on BahaIQ.
* Love from an atheist.
* My Personal Perspective on Teaching the Faith
* Happy 3,333 subscribers, r/bahai... and congrats on the rest of the family of subreddits for reaching their own milestones! 🎉

The website's meant to show off stuff that might be interesting for people who are learning about the #Bahai Faith. For instance, the "Study Hall" section gathers up a bunch of reference sites and study resources. The "Feeds" section on the website is similar to the "News" and "Community" sections of BahaIQ, if you remember that website from back in the day. Ideally there'll be even more stuff like that in the future.
One thing did land in my lap, though, and that's the website for #Bahai.FYI, which I've been contributing to for the past little while. It's been slowly coming together around the cozy little community that's grown up around the Discord server.
Soooo awhile back I was toying with the idea of working on a #Fediverse-enabled project. Turns out that life took a turn and I became much busier working on other stuff. I'm not sad about that, as the new stuff I'm doing is stuff that I love! I do regret not being able to do more #webdev work in my spare time, though.
