Yes, I like this topic. I do a lot of fedi-related dreaming and have a lot of project ideas that I drop around everywhere to people, hoping they’ll be inspired to think of what federation support could bring to plans they have themselves.
As for some plans I have myself… I won’t disclose them as yet as they require a fedi that doesn’t exist at this moment in time. I want these plans to unfold with the values and culture we hold dear, and stuff to remain free and open and non-commercial. But they’ll only be possible if fedi manages to tap deeper into its full potential, and my advocacy is dedicated to unleashing that.
As for the shorter term I’d like us fedizens to dream about what Social means, and forget about the traditional social media when doing so. It totally limits creativity and we’ll only create derivatives of what already exists. In other words “Social Networking Reimagined” … this goes far beyond Microblogging. Think of all that is social IRL.
As for games, here are opportunities. Low-hanging fruits. A simple game can be played with just pen and paper, or online with toots and boosts. I am hoping that @houkime will pick up the FediJams again. They were also planning to build a federated alternative to itch.io
With games we can all come closer together. Just look at Wordle, a simple game. Make some of these that are tailored for federation.
Also I’d like to see all the fragmented initiatives to become more aware of each other and more cross-pollination to occur. There’s tons of people doing tons of stuff and tons of other people who do not know about that. Some time ago I mentioned 🌏 Sci-Fi Labs Federated Worldbuilding here, and this is something we may tailor for the fedi too. I also think of Alternate Reality Games where we weave fediverse into real-world activity in exciting ways.
