Also, I unloaded a *ton* of ideas on the conference attendees for future of the fediverse; I'm sure it was overwhelming. Throughout the progression of the day at the unconference it was interesting to see a shift, especially from the Pleroma dev team, who (@lain especially taking the lead) expressed healthy skepticism initially on many of them but towards the end seemed to think that many (Datashards and stamps in particular) were quite implementable and would be good for the fediverse.
- Introducing ideas is important, but I need to try to introduce them in a bite sized way (I *am* trying to do that, and @librelounge has been walking through many of them, but I can do better)
- I need to give people more space to question the ideas, and patiently develop responses
- I think that @lain is completely right in that a) we need to be careful to introduce these ideas incrementally and make them easy but b) that should be possible for most of them.
