Comment by wefarrell on HN on an article about FB/Twitter thinking about removing likes:

"Hiding the number of likes makes their algorithm less transparent. Removing transparency makes it harder to distinguish between paid content."

Never thought of it that way, but it makes sense 🤔

One of the reasons hashtags are generally underused (besides a subculture that feels like hashtags is brand-like and therefore bad) is that there is no way to see which ones exist and are used

Without a pointer from another user or external blog post, artists don't know that even exists

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Au revoir Charles Aznavour. On vous aime. Repose en paix.

Spent some useless time writing on the birdsite to no avail so I'll try here where, evidently, there is more taste for intelligent discourse…

I am wondering if there has been any research done on how "bug styles" endure in software development teams.

For example: let's assume that the Microsoft Internet Explorer development team had a penchant for bugs linked to the wrong use of certain functions within the Windows GDI. Most of this team moves to Edge: do they carry the "bug style" with them?

J'aime pas trop l'idée de ne pas pouvoir aller dehors là...
