One time I beat a landlord in open combat (city council) and got my city council to pass a rental inspection ordinance which would protect tenants against predatory landlords. It was a small Texas town, and to this day it's my proudest achievement.

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.

I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:

getting ready to take a bath, which i am now proposing be renamed to "ActivityTub"

heads up if you ever use gimp for redacting screenshots and the like 

capitalist economic theory: no one gives anything away without asking for something in return, and anything offered for free will be exploited by selfish people trying to profit from it

the anarchist free store in my town: please, come take more of our free stuff, we have too much. we're running out of space from all of these donations and don't know what to do

The way we usually describe it is "like a thrift store, except we don't charge for the stuff." People bring donations, volunteers sort them, people pick them up. Rent is covered through patreon and venmo donations

There's also a community edible garden being built in the back, plus community events and concerts. It's a really awesome little setup

Another genderless insult you can use at a carnival 

It should be a thing in the videogames industry to not just let copyright expire, but to have an end-of-copyright plan similar to end-of-life plans, but where the project files are released to the public

I guess I need to start working on an ActivityPub compatible server with a frontend similar to Vine, I wouldn't want to disappoint @dansup after all.

To make it even more cursed, it'll probably be in node.js, as that's all I can really use without my head becoming a pile of goop.

I'll make a git repo for it tomorrow either on github or on my gitea instance.
