Good PST morning #fediverse!
Last night, I pushed out http://koype.net/ - a splash page to garner interest from those who've been following @jalcine's progress on the project thus far. The goal is to make a hub to make it simple for people to start using Koype; as simple as signing up for a silo (http://indieweb.org/silo) but with one caveat - from day ONE; you own ALL of your data (http://indieweb.org/ownyourdata).
Sign up for release info at https://koype.net/!
Fwiw, subscribing to the announcement email list was slow and confusing: had to enter my email address twice, opt in to email but not direct mail, unblock Google trackers in my browser, complete a long captcha, wait for a confirmation email. Email seems so straightforward, it's too bad that these mail services make it so hard to sign up.
I wish there were good drop-in services that handled those sign ups in a friendlier way. I know anti-spam is a constant concern for any service doing email distribution like MailChimp, and that sending a ton of email on your own infrastructure has its own complications, but it feels like there's room for alternatives.
@blackaf this sounds cool! Thanks for your hard work 👍👍👍
