I'm not gonna act like I've made bank on Masto as I definitely can't make a living here, but I've gotten more commissions from people who weren't friends than I ever have with Twitter.

It's great when an algorithm isn't actively working against you.

Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"

The stance by some of the #Diaspora core devs over #ActivityPub is quite honestly disappointing, and kind of perpetuates everything that depresses me over that project.

https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora/issues/7422

There are many valid criticisms to be had, but Diaspora in general has done fuck-all to support federation with other platforms, forcing those systems to conform to its own protocol instead.

The do-nothing attitude of their devs is particularly infuriating because their pushback arguments fall flat when compared against other projects. Friendica put the effort in, as did Hubzilla and Osada. None of them have "perfect" implementations by any means, but people within those projects have nevertheless made some kind of effort.

"Ability to cross-post from Twitter works against Mastodon adoption"

My thesis on this is simple. People choose the easiest path. If the destination is "try Mastodon", one path is "log on and use Mastodon" and the other is "set an automated cross-poster, keep using Twitter". So, people who might have otherwise committed to using Mastodon, for there not being another option to "get on it", now have the option not to.

I have observed this trend before and after the cross-poster became available.

I feel like the profile directory is still missing something, but I can't quite put my finger on it yet.
