@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!

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.

Some #Friendica screenshots to give an idea of what it's like to use.

It features a familiar #Facebook-style timeline in the middle, an FB-style events system, and there's also groups (sort of).

If people want to switch from Facebook, this could be a really nice alternative for them once #ActivityPub is added.

It also works as a feed reader, you can "friend" RSS addresses and they then appear in your timeline as if they were users.

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. ^.^
