I spent a decade thinking about how Twitter and Facebook could fix themselves instead of thinking about how we should express ourselves and build relationships online. We all did. Imagine what we could have built instead.

@fraying There have always been groups and individuals that did not. Think of Diaspora*, Identica, GNU social, Pump and many other alternatives.

@fraying Or think about what you will build in the next ten years. :)
