We launched that at work the other day: https://factourism.com — a ongoing collection of random facts with illustrations! Everyone in the studio is putting their hands to it, it’s kind of fun to work on, so I thought I might share it here :)
Also I made a mirror of our Twitter feed on Mastodon so that it is followable from the Fediverse!
Here it is: https://mastodon.xyz/@factourism
There should be around 3 facts a week until we run out of ideas (hopefully never!).
@crossposter Hi! Question about the cross-poster, does it support alternative text on images? If something is posted on Twitter with an image description, is the description also available on the image in the Mastodon feed?
And eventually #Firefox itself might be based off that. Or maybe something like GeckoView but for all platforms including desktop.
Maybe something that can also be used as an Electron alternative, but it is another story.
I’m just afraid to get to a point where “web standards” becomes “what works in Blink” which would be extremely worrying and we’re not far.
With Edge abandoning Trident for Blink, we’re getting to a critically low “biodiversity” of rendering engines, that can’t be good for the future of the #web. Plus it gives a lot of power to Google. I hope they’ll free the source so that we don’t loose an important piece of software like it happened with Presto.
By the way, I think its name and copy should be Christmas-free so it can be used for other festivities and other situations when you have to randomly match people secretly (yet to invent).
And with optional options it could do the matches:
— 🔀 Not crossing: each participant gets another participant that can’t be the one that got them.
— 🔃 Mutually: the pairs created go both way, creating duos.
— 🆓 Freely: sometimes people gets someone who don’t have them, sometimes people who have them.
Mastodon/Fediverse #bot idea: secret Santa. 🎁
— Send it a message, public or direct, with a list of @-handles.
— The bot takes care in secret of making santas→recipients pairs from the mentioned participants.
— It sends to each participant a direct message with the name of their secret recipient.
Someone interesting in building this before December? I’m afraid I can only contribute with that concept and a profile picture 🎅

I’m quite busy these days with other projects, but I’ll try to open a repository soon enough to have a space for initial sketches, mock-ups, and issues tracking.
And eventually I might be able to work on some concept, ui, html/css, and branding, but no serious js or back-end work.
Technically, I guess the best is to have Mastodon’s back-end and offer an alternative front-end?
