I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.

I am proud to come out as a gay man.

I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.

I love you guys ❤️

In case it wasn't clear:

I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, and believe black lives matter. If you have a problem with that, smash that unfollow button.

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

Still not used to seeing text-only posts in my :pixelfed: timeline 😅

Never would have anticipated that composing a new post would become the most complex part of pixelfed.

Federating :pixelfed: licenses would be neat, don't think any other implementation does this yet.

Set a default license, sync your default license across existing posts and self-enforce alt-text media descriptions to improve accessibility.

Shipping Soon! 🚀

Just finished a 13 hour work day 😅

Now to switch gears to and finish implementing some license improvements!

Good Morning! :blobcatcoffee:

My AirTags finally arrived, I didn't know they can play a sound to help locate them. That is so cool!

Text-only posts are now opt-in!

You can enable them by going to Settings -> Timeline and checking "Show text-only posts".

Photos and videos are way easier to handle than text lol

Hello text-only posts!

You can now see text-only posts in your home timeline from accounts you follow.

Bigger and Better.

The new desktop timeline will be rolling out soon!

I have to say though, I'm really impressed that Mastodon didn't adopt Fleets/Stories.

They could have, but clearly saw something that even Twitter didn't. I'm not quite sure what that was, but I think all mastodon users owe Gargron a thank you for sticking to his vision and not just adopting the latest "hip" feature!

And even then, you can look at the proliferation of TikTok videos on Instagram Reels as another issue.

You can have everything right, but first-mover advantage isn't something you can always buy.

I don't think we'll see a federated Clubhouse or TikTok anytime soon.

The correlation between ease of content creation and the success of federated projects is clear, low-effort mediums like text or photos are much easier to participate in than others.

Wow, just noticed how many users joined in the last 30 days.

It's not listed on the instance picker, I wonder where they heard about it.

Ordered a computer desk for my office!

Been working at the kitchen table for months and we have a few spare rooms so I figured its time.

I'm really excited to have my own space, my partner is an interior designer and will not let me hang up my Frank Ocean posters in the living room so this is a good compromise 😅
