Automation on iOS - An Introduction http://www.andynicolaides.com/2018/09/08/automation-on-ios.html
Hi! I'm making Tusk, a rather nice Mastodon client for iOS. If you want to test, sign up at https://tusk-boarding.herokuapp.com 😁
One of the symptoms of depression is not being able to tell the big problems from the little problems.
Wanna do some good? Form a brigade and go after Alex Jones or Mike Cernovich or Richard Spencer. Punch a nazi. They're not hard to find.
Wilw didn't deserve this. No matter how you feel about him, this was unfair. And we should learn from it because it will happen again.
We have to be able to tell the big problems from the little problems.
I still like it here, but I even feel like my affinity for the platform is waning. I'm still checking in a couple times a day and I still like the people I talk to here, but stories like Wil's puts the "Mastodon magic" in sharp clarity for me: people will be terrible on any platform. When the solution to Wheaton's "I'm being harassed constantly" problem was to suspend his account...I just don't know 😐
Wil Wheaton's experience on Mastodon is brutal. Isn't Mastodon supposed to be a "good place"? Aren't the community rules supposed to make it so people with good intentions can have a good time?
If it's taken just weeks for someone with a large following to have the exact same experience as they did on Twitter, maybe Mastodon isn't the silver bullet for online abuse some hoped it would be.
Take a fucking bow, folks.
I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.
Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈
Just catching up on this Wil Wheaton stuff. I think this proves Mastodon isn't this 'nice' and peaceful haven that was promised and that trolls exist everywhere. This also highlights that the moderation / administration in the hands of a small minority is also not ideal and potentially as bad (worse?) than Twitters approach. Not sure I'm interested in putting in any more time here.
I still love this ... https://mastodon.social/media/oDr-EpyNyyIJrpFNsqI
The latest episode of my podcast, Upload, is now available in all good (and some of the bad) podcast players. You can find it here I'd you're interested: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/upload/id1418119858?mt=2#episodeGuid=uploadpodcast.podbean.com%2F8-for-those-wallets-about-to-die-we-salute-you-6c2212097fa62baf9e6db2e49f76a054. I discuss the upcoming Apple releases and how they'll cripple me financially ...
Pixelfed is pretty cool (though the site looks like a complete clone of Instagrams, so not hugely original). It’s in desperate need of an iOS app before it can take off, however.
