Now that I see that it doesn't already exist, I am actively exploring setting up a new instance just focused on how the , () and related 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?

We forgot to take a group shot at the IndieWeb Meetup in Austin last week, but just noticed as I was flipping through photos that I had this one of my iced coffee and stickers. Next meetup is Nov 6th.

We just want to extend a huge THANK YOU to @Gargron for all of the tireless work to keep Mastodon.Social up and running through the challenges.

The is filled with people that care for each other's needs. It's no small task to keep a product going.

Just want you to know how much you are appreciated~

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

Have you already tried #FediPlan? It's an open source project for scheduling messages from the web (Mastodon and Pleroma) with nothing stored in db.

More work on the generic #activitypub parts of #fedbox for today: I fixed the processing of Like/Dislike activities when checking if one exists.

ie. Can't effect any of them if one of them already exists for current actor/object pair - I think this is not exactly up to spec (where they allow Like and Dislike at the same time), but it seems more sensible, and simpler to implement, to me.

I should probably explain that hashtag, #foak. Back in the Usenet days (I know, I’m old), we used “FOAK” in subject lines to designate a fact-based question we were looking for an answer to. The idea was that Usenet contained so many knowledgeable people that we were collectively the Font Of All Knowledge.

I’d love it if that caught on as a hashtag here; I’d really enjoy following the tag and seeing if I could answer any of the questions.
