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."

Many articles about the Australia-Facebook dispute noted that a large number of people rely on Facebook as their primary news and information portal. Because I think that relying on a big tech entity that treats users as products for advertisers as a primary news source is unwise - I suggest RSS as an alternative in my post.

(5/6) Pixelfed cannot be a better and ethical alternative if it ignores the gamification and FOMO dark patterns found on popular platforms.

(4/6) I've observed that most trending posts on pixelfed.social belong to a small group of accounts with many followers, making it harder for other users to appear on trending.

(3/6) When I designed the Trending feature, I did not consider the implications of ranking content by like counts.

(2/6) They find themselves constantly checking like counts and trying to get on the discover trending page by engaging in like-for-like behaviour that is prevalent on other platforms like Instagram.

(1/6) Was recently contacted by someone who mentioned the trending feature has changed the way they use Pixelfed.

Built a linktree like service for the fediverse.

The beta will be rolling out later this week for pixelfed users, will open up for everyone in a few weeks.

Also been working on the mobile app, new Pixelfed.org, FediDB, forum, instance picker, translation platform and linktree clone.

The Pixelfed ecosystem is about to get a whole lot bigger!

I started the installer and UIKit back in 2019 and just now are they almost ready 😅
