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?
Gargron is working on "announcements" - giving admins the ability to push a notice out to all server members. It's not yet clear what it'll look like.
This is great news! Folks have been suggesting some variation of this for probably a year or two now, I'd guess.

@bitwarden is probably the best password management solution I’ve settled on. I’ve been testing a few solutions over the last few weeks and I’ve settled with this one. Not _only_ is it completely open (there’s a hosted version), it has support for a lot of security features (2FA via YubiKey, TOTP, Duo, etc), holds other forms of PII.

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 #fediverse 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 🤔
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 🙂
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.
Heads up! We just released 1.0.0beta7 of Hyperspace. This release includes some design overhauls, keyboard screenshots (and better menu), a special theme for Mac users, server blocking, and even multi-account support!

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.
