@firstname.lastname@example.org -- this got me thinking; in life, it seems one must speak to be heard. In the modern world, is that a problem to solve technologically or just an opportunity for personal growth?

@thegibson @email@example.com and other hackers.town folk: any recommendations for podcasts? infosec and maker/DIY in particular.
How do we handle multi-device? Could we support identity delegation to trusted servers, allowing for light weight web/mobile clients?
Could we make better guarantees about #privacy? Does private messaging use PFS? Could we somehow implement guaranteed deletion? Could we support explicit approval for new followers?
ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.
Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)
I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)
Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.
Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.
*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*
1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
If firstname.lastname@example.org sends a direct message to email@example.com, does the server-to-server protocol allow ghi.pub to read the contents, or does the web of trust only extend to abc.pub and def.pub?
Similar question for locked accounts with followers-only post. Would the user be trusting only the instances containing users which they've allowed to follow them?

If that's of any interest to you, maybe you want to add to that bounty. Or maybe you want to implement the missing bits.
