Great news ..

initiative, started at SocialHub now has a space on Lemmy 😃

With that a path has been created to go from our wildest dreams to - via brainstorming and further elaboration - materializing them. Expand the technology base.

Together we'll go towards !!

@activitypub and its related standards are ready to be taken to the next level. Will you help with that?

Join us on and 🤗

Social Cooling: The long-term negative side effects of living in a reputation economy.

Share this insightful resource!

Just like film on Netflix it serves to make people directly aware of how social media might impact their personal life.

Watch and cry... then roll up you sleeves and help turn this around! A must-see for any would-be Humane Tech Activist.

who created many more similarly beautiful but highly disturbing works of art.

or ?

As we're onboarding our first team member, it's a good time to look at how we dealt with customer support for 4k subscribers, 1k monthly trials and a growing open source community before looking for help

so you can just
- drop a bare git repo on a static webserver
- run 'git update-server-info' whenever you push to it

then you and anyone else can clone it right through the website

but if you want to browse the files in the repo github-style, you need to run a service

🤔 i wonder if i could i fully render out pages for a browser representation of a bare git repo, suitable for static hosting

would have to re-render on every push, but that's just like `git update-server-info`

Ok, this C4 fork of #Mastodon is all sync'd up. Nice thing about this is it doesn't take much to keep it moving forward.

@sean @emacsen Especially for Friendica C2S could be an "interesting" task, since our system is a multiprotocol system. Means that people can communicate with AP systems, with Diaspora systems, with syetem speaking only OStatus, older Friendica systems that only speak DFRN or (when activated) communicating with Twitter contacts.

This means that we had to generate some artificial AP payload for everything that hadn't arrived via AP at the system.
Micropub has existing client implementations.

The perfect server would have AP S2S, applicable IndieWeb protocols, AP C2S and MicroPub.

@dansup I would love if the machine readable Schema were compatible with go-fed's ASTool so that:
1) it could be natively shared itself via ActivityPub, and
2) our projects could read / write the same input files


@humanetech I agree. I plan on adding federation documentation.

My long term goal is to adopt a machine readable ActivityPub implementation schema for FediDB with crowdsourced data for each project so one can build and test against real world objects.

Implementing new ActivityPub object types unused by other projects is fun!

I don't have to worry about compatibility, and I get to define my own object schema 👍

Trying out #diaspora and I'm wondering what the people in the #ActivityPub corner of the #fediverse currently think of it.

Personally I'm struggling to see what niche it would fill for me. The current features don't seem all that different from #mastodon and if I wanted something less birdsite-like wouldn't #friendica be the obvious choice since it federates with both? What am I missing?

Maybe I'll move my git projects to Codeberg and shutter my GitHub account. :thaenkin:

ran across this image looking for something totally different and sort of like it as a branding idea for the #fediverse

I'm happy to announce that the administration team of - @dustin, @evilchili, @rgggn, and me - have decided to upgrade the club by migrating to the Hometown fork of Mastodon, which is a community-oriented fork maintained by @darius that adds a number of features that should enhance the vibe of the club nicely.


Synthetic Stars is a 3D online hack'n'slash FPS that my team and I are developing.

I invite you all to follow the development!

I am excited to be part of this beautiful project.
Stay tuned for the next updates!

Average users per instance according to :

Mastodon - 675
Pixelfed - 222
Pleroma - 35
PeerTube - 159
Lemmy - 648

Mastodon, Pixelfed, Pleroma, PeerTube and Lemmy are the only projects that have at least one instance with over 10k users.

Only Mastodon has more than one instance with more than 10k users, according to FediDB.

No surprise that Mastodon has the most new instances in the past month according to

@Gargron could Mastodon be more rigorous in creating RDF definitions of the arbitrary assortment of properties and types it's pioneered?

For example, for practical reasons I merged this:

But it's not accurate to say "manuallyApprovesFollowers is an ActivityStreams property".

It is why we generally only support a partial vocabulary of the "Mastodon types":

I think i mentioned this to @nightpool before too.

Some fediverse platforms don't show you who's actually following you, and it's the most annoying design decision ever. It's kind of a privacy concern, actually.

#PeerTube and #Funkwhale, I'm looking at you.
