  • openlibrary

    Project mention: NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month | | 2023-11-14

    Right now I'm in the middle of the chicken and the egg problem where we don't have enough authors cataloging their publications and b/c of that obviously readers are not interested in using the site.

    I've gone back and forth with taking Open Libray's [0] catalog as that would at least flesh out our collection of books but then I'd have to deal with verifying authors to accounts so they can access their books. Which sounds like a major headache and also just defeats the concept of building a community.

    Since this is really a weekend project, I'm just going to keep building the tools out to perfection and hope people will trickle in over time.

    Luckily for me I just want to write, so the tools I'm building are exactly what works for my writing goals and I think overtime others will find the same value.

  • bookwyrm

    Social reading and reviewing, decentralized with ActivityPub

    Project mention: Bookwyrm – the federated social network for reading books | | 2023-07-19

    It’s got a very ideologically-driven focus, including an anti-capital source license:

    I think the focus on federation is to encourage small, decentralized and communally operated sites that play well with the broader fediverse. I can see that working well for a lot of book communities!

    Also, spent a bit of time a few weeks ago and it already seemed to have the nicest UX of the open social book services, at least that I could see (would love recs - mostly interested in a personal tracker).
