Luckily the is still a relatively non-toxic place in comparison to twitter or facebook.

If it would ever become so, in this excellent blog post a Mea Culpa mechanism is explained to de-escalate social media conflicts, and we could model that in :

I'm thinking about #ActivityPub and how much possibility it has that we've not seen yet. You can write an ActivityPub server as a gateway to any API. You can write an ActivityPub server to scrape webpages and submit forms and have literally any website talk to any other website.

Let's help improve the software!

It's time to find some bugs! Will be spending time with Misskey and Pixelfed today.

Wanting #activitypub #relay to support a blocklist feature where admins can opt into reporting and voting on server bans.

Think about it, subscribe to a relay of like minded members, manage problem servers without everyone having to play word of mouth whack a mole, build up community consensus.

Why is this hard? Why is this still not a thing? 🤔😠

Considering to try participate in this #Hackaton to bring #nomadicidentity to fediverse, based on #DIDs and #ipfs

This issue was already , and nice video on this It's possible to apply as a team, so if any #activitypub developers are interested, let's try

open source e-reader in a world full of amazon-controlled e-readers seems like a good move

Is there any plan to build a federated Git platform, maybe with #ActivityPub under the hood?
I get really annoyed everytime I want to open an issue for a #FOSS project, that is not on Github. It's not that I like Github, I just don't like to register on a self-hosted Gitlab, Gitea or whatever, just to open an issue.
Having a #federation there would be awesome!


A new version on the #federated link aggregator: moderation is coming.

First in the form of blocking users, but with other improvements in #fedbox the generic #activitypub service.

This is the last big hurdle before starting work on server to server federation. So say we all!

Is there any activitypub server that is geared more towards blogging rather than microblogging?

Like the difference between and

With twitter I can post a very tiny amount of text without any markup or images in it. (But I can attach images to a post.)

With blogger I can type an several large books worth of text and I can insert images or diagrams or videos throughout it. Anywhere I want.

Is there one more like blogger?

Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit:


It's still in early beta and the federation isn't stable yet, but when it is finished it will make Lemmy part of the Fediverse through ActivityPub.

*Yay,* made a page for

#ActivityPub #Conference 2020

You could register and the Call for Proposals is open through July 8

Following a successful inaugural conference in 2019, we have expanded APConf 2020 to a four day event that will occur entirely on line via Big Blue Button!

Hm. I really need to write an #ActivityPub client/server to figure out how this thing works.

I guess #OAuth as well.

sigh...not able to get #ActivityPub implemented and not getting help :(

PeerTube is the Fediverse's own video network:


Because it's part of the Fediverse, you can watch, follow, share, like and comment on PeerTube from Mastodon if you prefer. You can also embed PeerTube videos on websites.

PeerTube's site explains more:

They are currently crowdfunding the latest version, which will support live streaming:

Personal philosophy on selfhosting 

There are a lot of things I would like to selfhost and play with but its clear that I just don't have the time to do all of it. With every extra server, service and layer complexity that's more and more time and difficulty setting up and troubleshooting and fixing if things go wrong. Maximum simplicity and utility gained in the least amount of time is where I get excited.
