NYC folks: if you'd like a free ticket to my day long workshop this Friday about, essentially, how to run a great Mastodon instance for your community, I have discount codes!

It's based on my guide but it uses the guide as a jumping off point and I get into some of the nitty gritty, including things like "how to stay on top of Mastodon releases and keep your community informed of new features if you don't know anything about programming"

ranting about single page applications 

I really need to start blogging or podcasting about Pixelfed development.

I could go on forever about the technical details of things and I'm sure someone would find that interesting.

For those who haven't seen, is live!

It's a forum to discuss ActivityPub implementation, hosting, community building, etc.

Facebook: I'm in a promising local band.

Twitter: I'm developing an idea for a startup.

Instagram: I'm building an audience to become an influencer.

Mastodon: I use Linux distros you've never even heard of.

Excited to support #ActivityPub mentions in #WriteFreely! (In progress here:

So far it works great with #Pleroma, but #Mastodon doesn't support mentions in the Articles we send out (only Notes). So we've opened an issue to fix this:

We are working on documenting Pixelfed ActivityPub Extensions as part of the v0.11 release.

We look forward to working with other projects to steward new features without sacrificing privacy, safety and security.
Not directly related to the but a post I’m often reminded of regarding owning your data

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

I find it interesting that the blog for @Mastodon and other services don’t support so there’s not a constant way to share/comment

Just to get a feeling, should e-mail notifications for mentions, followers etc be on by default?

The "off" default was a way to cut e-mail delivery costs early on and I haven't really re-evaluated that decision since. It seems favoured towards always-on power users...

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

Trying out mastodon recently and thinking about various apis and federation
