This is my somewhat regular toot inquiring as to whether anyone I know from the mastoverse uses Twister or secure scuttlebutt / patchwork.

@dajbelshaw

Thanks for pointing this out. I currently use KeePass, by the way. When I went and researched LessPass, several people pointed out that if your LessPass master password is compromised, a would be attacker would be able to use that with your site username to gain access.

Glancing at my mastodon feed while reading Walkaway by @doctorow and pondering the parallels.

"All of these companies have the same weakness: apps are not that hard to build. A determined group of #Uber drivers, once organized, could band together and easily program an app (or hire someone to) that would resemble Uber or #Lyft outwardly, but inwardly send the fruits of their labors back to themselves — no middlemen taking a cut or #BottomlessInvestorMaws to feed."

@ummjackson Except now I trashed the web interface when I tried to do the 1.2 update . The learning curve continues.

@ummjackson It's working for the moment. Afraid I have pulled from master. Not sure how to tell if I pulled from master or tagged. Just ran git pull as the update instructions for the mastodon repo indicated. Seems to be working at the moment.

commit fc122e9d78131efbe882b664b0186df21b179be0 (HEAD -> master, origin/master, origin/HEAD)

Oops.

So is the thing to do checkout the next stable release into a new branch, then merge?

@katebowles

Someone pointed out the awkwardness of entering into a space with an established culture. People often choose to cluster demographically. That tendency is especially pronounced in virtual environments.

I also suspect the public timelines will become less important as people build their own follow lists.

@mikecaulfield @bonstewart
I'm not sure you do. Citizenship happens because we have to share real space with our neighbors. I realized about ten years ago when I hung out in a Second Life community and governance experiment that virtual spaces aren't like that. It's almost trivially easy to take one's toys to another server or another platform/network. Your only incentive to be a good citizen is liking the people in your virtual social circle.

@dajbelshaw Remember that some follower data is instance specific.

@dajbelshaw When I am logged in to my instance and look at your profile I see only your follower count from my instance. Compare the two pictures.

Haven't seen a toot for weeks. Is my instance broken?
