New blog post: "Introducing Pinafore for Mastodon" https://nolanlawson.com/2018/04/09/introducing-pinafore-for-mastodon/
Thread on Twitter on the sketchy "get rich quick" conference feat. Pitbull and Sylvester Stallone in #toronto, worth a read: https://twitter.com/sdbcraig/status/982705997071507456
Really pleased to see that "Who are your favourite people to follow on Mastodon?" thread on HN. It's a shift in tone from talking about the legitimicy of Mastodon as a platform
Made a quick blog post on #Firefox's Container Tabs extension and how to use it: https://www.andryou.com/2018/04/02/firefox-container-tabs/ #privacy
A must-have browser extension which lets you group sites into "containers". Site cookies are separated by container to prevent sites from tracking you across the web: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/ (e.g. I've created a Banking container)
I've been here a little while but never wrote a formal introduction, so here goes!
I've also created a number of bots to mirror content from Twitter to the Fediverse (full list is on my timeline), some are @bbcworld, @cp24, @ttcnotices (the last two will make Mastodon feel like home for fellow Toronto citizens)
#tip Individuals can block entire instances. Just pick an individual from the instance in question, go to their profile, and open up the menu you would use to mute, block, or report them. Under these options is another one: hide all posts from <instance>. You'll be asked to confirm, just in case. Once you pull the trigger, refresh your feed. You won't see material from the instance you just blocked.
