@Gargron @dansup @jdormit @cwebber @puckipedia works now 😍 it was a caching problem, because I changed my RSA-keys... I think I will have a working WordPress plugin by the beginning of the next week!

One foot in front of the other, people. If you see someone stumble, help them up. We'll get there together.

Here’s an idea: form a voluntary “Fediverse Code” that limits the size of instances to a small number. Say 100 or, at most 1,000. Any instances larger than that size are blocked.

The mega-instances we have today, like .social, voluntarily agree to cull their numbers over a period of time; aiding the migration to other instances.

The fediverse is already hugely centralised and unless we do something about it, it will be ruled by a handful of feudal lords/Mini-Jacks.

In a few hours I'll be recording my next podcast episode. It's a special all about—you guessed it— #Mastodon ! Send me questions (technical, philosophical, etc.) you'd like me to answer, and I'll do the research and answer as best I can.

Please boost if you'd like others to chime in as well. cc @Gargron

One of my favourite photos I've ever taken, it won National Geographic's photo of the day :D We don't often get good storms in this part of South Africa, so if they hit in the night-time and it's dry, I rush down to the beach with my camera (Nikon D7000) for some long exposures. ^.^

Technology should exist to serve, and not to rule.

It should elevate the many, not just the few.

In all things ask, who is processing and what is processed.
