@cwebber Hi, we're still working out the technical details. More information will be published this weekend!
We have some exciting news!
Our next experiment involves improving federated privacy and security in Pixelfed.
We will be testing ActivityPub + OCAP for the Stories feature which will be released later this month.
This will only effect Pixelfed instances, we plan to support other ActivityPub implementations in the future.
@sato1108ss I note that the author is the CEO of an online language learning company. That’s a strong indication that the article might be biased.
But worse, the whole “study” is based on data gathered through a “viral Facebook quiz” in which people provided self-assessments of their own skills and learning process, which is notoriously unreliable, bordering on farcical.
It's certainly true that adults are capable of learning languages to a high standard, but this is not convincing evidence.
"It’s highly possible that this learning difference by age is not due to some magic change in brain plasticity, but simply that adults don’t have as much time to be exposed as children and often hit a point where it stops being helpful to improve after a while. "
As you may have noticed from recent boosts, @pixelfed now has "remote follows".
In case you're wondering what it is, #Pixelfed is a free open alternative to Instagram, designed for privacy-friendly photo sharing.
You can now follow Mastodon accounts from Pixelfed, and Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon.
Remote follows mean wherever you sign up, you can follow people from other servers 👍

'There is a form of #privacy being violated— activist Maciej Cegłowski calls it #ambientprivacy: “the understanding that there is value in having our everyday interactions with one another remain outside the reach of #monitoring, and that the small details of our daily lives should pass by unremembered. What we do at home, work, church, school or in our leisure time does not belong in a #permanentrecord.
