Said yes to hold a 5 minute lightning talk. Obvious first step: spend weekend creating web based slide deck powered by web components, gamepad API, and webassembly.

I miss being able to use third-party clients for messaging apps 😞

I'm not sure it's a good way to choose a mail service provider, but the way that the CEO of Fastmail is to be seen participating in every email-related hacker news story gives me confidence. These guys are _passionate_ about email.

Oh, hey, .app domain names are becoming available. From the product description it kinda looks like they are more meant for downloadable apps, but I'd reckon that they'd be perfect for PWAs.

In my journey to rekindle my love for RSS I discovered feedbin.com. Killer feature: ability to subscribe to email newsletters and twitter feeds.

I have a hope that those two could make it hit my personal sweet spot between a firehose and a (semi-) humanly curated stream of things to read.

I've finnished transcribing one of Cory Doctorow's most important talks: How to break the Internet, destroy democracy and enslave the human race (or not).

Do you care about a free and just society? Then you need to watch/read this! Software rules the world corydoctorow.miraheze.org/wiki

PS: I'd love your help on the wiki! Read how here: corydoctorow.miraheze.org/wiki

PPS: Do you appreciate my work? I'd appreciate your support on my new @Liberapay, if you can! :) liberapay.com/forteller/

Just saw masto.host

Nice idea and good concept. #Federation allows everyone to get an own instance. Thanks to the concept of #managed servers.

This really enables everyone to run a #mastodon instance who has 5€ per month left over.

Nice project, I like it to #democratize social media!

BRB, enjoying amazing Cape Town.

What is Mastodon? An animated video: youtu.be/IPSbNdBmWKE 🐘

It has the word "Web" in it, I guess.

Strong urge to buy the new Raspberry Pi 3+ and put WebOS on it. For what reason I don't know just yet.
