    @vivaria spoke my mind and I was tempted to reply to your questions directly but now I wonder, what's the point? If you don't feel pressure/influence/power from something you voluntarily read, how could you empathise/understand any explanation I give?

    So I conclude your questions aren't genuinely seeking to understand but please let me know if I've assumed too much.

    Yes. This is exactly the difference I'm getting at. Some submissions are user-centric - the poster often sticks around to answer questions and the subject is secondary to their views on it. Other submissions are subject-centric where the poster is largely irrelevant. I think all social media gets these two types of submissions regardless of what they're designed for. The ~blog idea is great. I was thinking of some way to differentiate the two submission types, partially automatic, partially by user tags, and present them differently. How? I still don't know. :)

    It could be that simple. I'm curious nonetheless. I tried tineye but that doesn't really work since they're not just photoshopped versions of each other.

    I've been struggling with the Homotopy Type Theory book too. I found it helped to step back and learn some more type theory and category theory first. The book's beautifully written but maybe lacking in examples for a beginner. Same could be said about many mathematics texts.

    My example does seem contrived and yet I swear it was a very natural chain of thought to me. I don't think sites like tildes or reddit are designed for these loosely related networks of posts by a single user. That's more twitter and medium's domain. However, I think being able to host that sort of single-user conversation format across multiple topics would strengthen the tilde communities. Most of what I'm thinking of now could be done with custom user tags and tag filtering.

    You're right, next step would be to get some visual demo. Maybe I'm trying to solve something that's not a problem. Wouldn't be the first time. I'll think about it. Thanks for such a considerate reply.

    This may seem like I'm rambling but, please bare with me, I think I have some point(s) to make.

    • I've been trying to locate a common ancestor image to the album cover of Gnarls Barkley's single Crazy and the banner of an interesting talk titled Imagination and it's resistance to chance. I think the resemblance is sufficient to suggest one an ancestor exists and it's not just a crazy coincidence. Can anyone help identify it?

    • The same academic conference linked above hosts a fascinating introduction to Intensionality, Invariance, and Univalence. It captures some of the most exciting mathematics going on at the moment. Presumably I should be posting this in ~science tagged as mathematics. Is there some limit at which particular tags become popular enough to warrant their own subtilde? Are there queries users can run to determine tag counts? These questions were prompted by the slight irritating thought of classifying mathematics under science.

    • People could respond to many different parts of this thread since I've written so much. However, the points are slightly related, at least in how I present them. If I were to split them up into separate posts, not only would it add to the noise, each point would lose whatever relation they had. So, I wonder if, much like r/IAMA, could there be a better format for conversations where many users are speaking to a particular individual? An expert or celebrity perhaps. Trying to track all the replies of the main user was always a hassle in those IAMA threads.

    If there's interest in such an extension to tildes, I'd like to offer my help in implementing it. That's my main point really and why I posted here.

    IANAL but the Victorian Defamation Act of 2005 seems relevant here. Apparently there's no 'libel' legally-speaking. Both libel and slander fall under 'defamation'.
