It’s been a year since the music links on Myspace stopped working; at first the company insisted that they were working on it, but now they’ve admitted that all those files are lost …Yeah, apparently they don't have a backup.Someday, this will happen to Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Don't trust the platforms to archive your data....

ModerationOffline communities rely on support workers, first responders, safety enforcement and so on. As online communities grow, we need to think of ways to structure an equivalent human support system that functions transparently, and outside corporate monopoly.But this isn’t easy to do. If you moderate a global social network, you have to take into account different voices, different contexts, different needs. Once the network is big enough, bad things will show up and you have to deal with them.Current self-hosted implementations like Diaspora, Hubzilla or Mastodon rely on the volunteer admins of each instance to do the right thing. This is ok as long as the instances are small enough, and the overall network doesn’t get too big.In addition to the obvious moderation tasks, we will also consider the need to address various harmful practices that range from hate speech to bullying or even human trafficking.We will implement an API that allows admins to outsource moderation to us. Our moderation guidelines and principles will be informed by social research and accepted best-practices. We will work transparently, with open and documented guidelines, under a trusted advisory board to make sure that everyone has a safe place in this new online civic space.

... As I take these events around the country, I am meeting audiences who are asking thoughtful, fearless and challenging questions, many of which have resonated deeply with me.

I felt that social media was by its nature undermining both nuance and connectivity. I thought that, for my fans at least, The Red Hand Files could go some way to remedy that. The number and breadth of questions I have received over the last three months has been staggering, indeed, many are not questions at all, but people using the Files to tell their own stories. It is a privilege to read these pieces of writing and it is both a pleasure and an honour to stand on stage before you all. ...
