May 15th marks two years since I left Facebook and found there was nowhere (viable) to go.
It’s the perfect day to celebrate what we now know as Friendica. It’s been two bloody hard years.
I’ve made more enemies than friends in that time, because I’ve been relentless in my message that nobody else is doing anything like this – and it is something that could and should fundamentally change the entire power structure of the internet.
Most of you have done heaps to promote the project – and have managed to acquire a few enemies of your own. It’s par for the course. Thank you for your support. We’re in a climate where everybody wants to be the successor to Facebook, because in this they see a path to riches.
We want to reduce Facebook to insignificance. Not for wealth, but because it is what we must do – for the future of the free world. As for Diaspora, we must let them find their own future. We can no longer align our project with theirs as it will link us to their continued failure.
Please help us – and do something extra special for Friendica Day (May 15th). Let’s tell the world that we’ve arrived in a big way. We aren’t doing this for fame, fortune or glory. We’re doing this to save ourselves and our friends from corporate slavery.
