"What is ActivityPub and how will it change the Internet?". Nice post by @jdormit!
(The only thing I'd challenge is the bit about needing lots more users to compete with Facebook and Twitter - I think most active users here would say that the fediverse is doing well already & it doesn't have to become a wholesale Facebook/Twitter-slayer for it to be good and useful! I think in general we - I'm guilty of it too - spend too much time focusing on & comparing with them!)
Questions for y'all:
1. What's been the best thing about using WordPress? Feature/plugin/anything
2. What's the worst thing about using WordPress?
Just published a short guide for finding stuff on #PeerTube, along with how you actually subscribe to channels.
I have a number of channel recommendations for anyone that's wondering "Where the heck do I watch stuff?"
(eternal apologies to everyone that might gripe, I'm still working on a Medium replacement)

I just realised peer tube is an offshoot of mastodon (or at very least, compatible). I can add peer tube accounts to mastodon and they appear in my time line..that's pretty cool
My experience upgrading to Elm 0.19
The #EU Parliament votes on the Copyright Directive, including Articles 11 & 13, are due this Wednesday. If the EU were to vote for 11 & 13 in their original forms, it would have a chilling effect on political discourse, curtail freedom of speech & endanger the #Fediverse .
If you live in the EU (that still includes the UK) get in touch with your MEPs and say to them you oppose 11 & 13. Include your name & address to prove you are a constituent.

There's an interesting community project on here called #Trunk:
It's a list of people to follow on the #Fediverse, organised by category. You can follow people individually, or follow entire category lists.
You can add yourself to the list by sending a message to one of the site admins. Remember to include which category/categories you want to be listed in.
(via @eloisa )
Just found out about Trunk, a tool that helps you find Masto users with specific interests: https://communitywiki.org/trunk
You can add yourself there (other people cannot add you).
It's also cool because it seems to be by the creator(s)? of Oddmuse, a wiki engine. I started making a website in it a good year ago. Very slow progress on that one, though...
Proposed new look for Rabbit Escape - what do you think? https://github.com/andybalaam/rabbit-escape/pull/569

If you use Wunderlist and want to be able to bulk-add tasks from a text file, first install and set up wunderline.

I had an 11-year old, verified account with over 30,000 followers, I’ve been to the Twitter offices twice, once when they were a 30-people company for a meeting with Ev Williams.
I pulled the plug.
Writing a new Flarum extension on Ubuntu
In a previous post I described how to install Flarum locally on Ubuntu. Here is how I set up my development environment on top of that setup so I was able to write a new Flarum extension and test it on my local machine. Recap: I installed Apache and PHP and enabled mod_rewrite, installed MariaDB…[...]
