I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Fancy joining?
Lets'run this instance democratically?
How?
for example:
Have an idea that might affect us all?
Lets' talk about it on a matrix channel and then, if needed, put it for a vote on something like https://www.loomio.org/


How many have joined?
There are a fair few people and much more seemingly bots on this instance.
(*117 users at the time of writing)
Only one person, a human presumably, is active - however, since the instance is open, the idea of doing it democratically and linked with FeDI seems appropriate.

Indeed, perhaps when considering democracy with bots on instances -
should they not get to be part of the process?
