On the bright side, development news are piling up! So expect a packed show.
On the sadder side, websites are so bloated these days. Webdevs, compress and minify your assets, every KB counts! #b3d

Great post on #federated social networks for people who don't understand the difference to centralised networks like #Facebook and #Twitter. - https://tinysubversions.com/notes/decentralized-social-networks/
there is actually some very good critique of mastodon culture in here but they all have this particular bit, where they complain about how ~inaccessible~ the fediverse is. “it needs to be easier for kardashian fangirls and frat bros to get into!” they whine. “this’ll never take off, i can’t follow oprah here”
and of course in doing so they demonstrate exactly why the fediverse is not for normies.
you have all of the rest of the internet. facebook, twitter, instagram, tinder, okcupid, all the rest exists purely to cater to your dull consumer impulses. there is nothing for you here. these spaces exist for the people who actually want meaningful human connection. the people who don’t want to play farmville or fill out quizzes about which disney princess they are or send star wars-themed stickers to their “friends.” the fediverse is for talking to people.
and normies have completely forgotten how to do that.
It's... another #FollowFriday 🍸
