Neterarti - it's like twitter but for art.

Join us on

Neterarti is a social network for net art play and activity, based on 
the Free Software GNU social tool.

It is inspired by conversations at Furtherfield's Netbehaviour list 
about email discussion lists and the lack of alternative platforms to 
Facebook and Twitter.

We hope you will sign up and experiment with us to find out more 
about its suitability as a platform for exploring arts technology and 
social change.

We will host it until January 2017 and then we'll all see what happens.

If you register for an account, you can post small (1000 chars or 
less) text notices about yourself, where you are, what you're doing, 
or practically anything you want.

You can also subscribe to the notices of your friends, or other 
people you're interested in, and follow them on the Web or in an RSS 
feed. Since GNU social is a federated social network, you can follow 
(and be followed by) anyone on any other GNU social server.

What can you post?

Whatever you want as long as you're not mean to your fellow 
neterartists. Art, activism, techie-stuff, poetry, performance, 
criticism, discussions of things here or elsewhere.

Neterarti is what we make of it so let's make something wonderful.

Who should you follow? Whoever you like.

You can get together in groups, chat in direct messages (if you 
follow each other), and post surveys to find out more about the 
people you are talking to.

You can connect to neterarti via this web interface or via any 
computer or mobile device software that supports GNU social (or its 
predecessor, StatusNet).
