An academic paper about social networks misspelled Mastodon, Pleroma and Pixelfed lol
@dansup looks like they got Mastadon right to me
@dansup tttttripple kill
@dansup Note for folks with screen readers: Mastodon is spelled Mastadon, Pleroma is spelled Plemora, and Pixelfed is spelled PixelFred. Pixel Fred. I can't get over it.
@dansup source please
@dansup It's good that papers usually have mails to their authors bundled.
@dansup Will keep you posted if I get a response.
@dansup Got a response.
@dansup I cannot believe Fred from pixelfred would misspell the name of his own network and then try to say that it's other people that are saying it wrong
@dansup actually, I think “PixelFred” was a bit of missed oppertunity for you
@dansup Pixel Fred is this generation's Myspace Tom
Oh man! Rename it to PixelFred @dansup!
@xxyxxyart PixelFred is the name of our mascot! https://github.com/pixelfed/brand-assets/blob/master/README.md#mascot
Ah that's awesome! I didn't know that @dansup
@dansup guess their papers aren't scored on literacy, just word count
@dansup Maybe it's correct, and "Mastodon" didn't even make the top ten list.
We're the ones who are missing out.
You'd think them academics would at least be able to spell...?
@dansup Give them a break 😹 Probably were on a tight deadline. Sadly another reason might be that they never used these federated networks and just were taking things theoretically. A glance at the paper says that they had totally different topic and this list was just a reference they wanted to throw in.
@dansup nice pixels, Fred
I believe that "Write Freely" should also be written as WriteFreely, though I must say that while I primarily saw WriteFreely on @writefreely's site, I also saw several occurrences of "write freely" (and their Fediverse account seems to be named "Write Freely"), so perhaps #WriteFreely has no preferred spelling. :)
@dansup "Hi, I'm Pixel Fred. Nice to meetcha!"
@dansup can we plz change the name to PixelFred
@jajaperson nope, PixelFred is the name of our mascot.
@lain it be like that sometime
@dansup image can have a little description. As a treat.
@dansup PixelFred! Join the Frediverse, teh frederated soical newtork!
Right said PixelFred
@dansup PixelFred could be a Saturday morning kids cartoon.
@dansup wow only 1000 fold fewer users than fb. With 10x growth, mastodon will have remarkable network effect.
@dansup Pixel Fred and his best friend, Mister Don
@heluecht No idea, the numbers for Pixelfed are off by 10k as well.
@dansup I don't know what "Juick" is but calling a social network with one node "federated" seems a bit generous.
@heluecht Still weird.
@heluecht The confusion between social networks and the software to enable them is probably the bigger issue, I guess.
