"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."

- Noam Chomsky

Instagram allows you to delete comments from other people on your own posts. Not sure if I will implement it, it would not federate and give the impression you can delete remote comments.

A general ActivityPub implementation would be awesome if it ships with a UI that supports every ActivityStreams verb!

First it was federated emoji, now it's rich text and next LaTex.

There is a reason Pixelfed doesn't support federated emoji 😂

I still can't believe thats Uzi in the chorus

Are We Still Friends?

You can't please everyone. Give an inch and they take a mile. Quick to tear you down, slow to show praise.

I guess screenwriting and open source have that in common.

Whew! A LOT more documentation done on #Spritely Crystal! gitlab.com/spritely/crystal/bl

Now with a "How does it work?" section.

Feedback is most welcome! I know it's a lot to take in but I hope this is fairly understandable so far.
