Now that I see that it doesn't already exist, I am actively exploring setting up a new #Mastodon instance just focused on how the #Indieweb, #Fediverse #Mastodon #selfsovereign #identity (#SSI) and related #openweb efforts all mix. Or how they should but don't yet. The instance software itself could also be a place to experiment on how to do this better.This would be akin to how other instances are purely focused on Privacytools, or other subsets of tech.
Anyone interested in co-admin-ing?
It takes about 3 weeks for us to forget about #massshootings. This is how far we have fallen if something doesn’t directly impact us. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/08/21/it-takes-about-three-weeks-americans-stop-paying-attention-after-mass-shooting/
Why Governments Use Mass Surveillance—And What To Do About It
Big update today on #fedbox, the generic #activitypub service. Finally having proper processing for an Activity's local audience members: if they're local then save the activity's reference to their inboxes.
Sometime in the near future I need to add the logic for disseminating the Activity to the non local recipients using S2S. (Most of the required pieces are already there, I just need to add a bit of glue between them).
It's missing a play button, but is there something to this approach..? #mastodev

- Full support for rendering incoming `Article` posts from federated blogs like Write.As
- "Exclusive" lists that let you follow someone without clogging up your home timeline

I was interviewed for Marketplace today about running your own social network site! You can catch me on NPR stations today or just listen/read here:
"Owning your content isn’t about portable software. It’s about portable URLs and data. It’s about domain names...If you can’t use your own domain name, you can’t own it. Your content will be forever stuck at those silo URLs, beholden to the whims of the algorithmic timeline and shifting priorities of the executive team."
