As you can see, it's already off to a great start!

Like yeah I could have worded that better, but people have said intentional, vicious, misleading BS about the project and I've never seen @Gargron drag them in front of all his followers.

Community expectations flow from the top. This is a bad omen.

It's also apparently launching as an iPhone app. That's...not really inclusive. Apple may have a budget phone now, but it's barely been out a year. Most people are still on outdated Androids and desktops.

Mastodon was great because it launched on the web with a suitable mobile experience, and people built their own mobile apps as needed.

There is someone working on and promoting a new social media silo to replace Twitter and Facebook. The project has solid marketing, but I can't exactly wish him good luck. I think the effort is conceptually flawed, especially in the context of what we've already built with Mastodon and networks compatible with the same protocols on the fediverse.

The time of social media silos is coming to an end. Mastodon proved distributed networks and inclusive development are the future.

it's absolutely astonishing how much more effective writing code is when you sit and properly think, instead of trying a bunch of things one after the other in hopes that something will stick

okay but what if i got smilodon working *before* thinking about rolling my own email server

"wow, why does my wrist hurt so much, i've only been coding all day"

there's a special place in hell for people who use absolute urls for on-site assets

are magic signatures imperative for federation with masto?

if yes, can anybody point me toward some good documentation? i've been unable to find any python libraries, and i have basically no experience with crypto...

@cwebber in webfinger/activitypub, how does masto make the leap from webfinger's response to finding the user's feed? i figure i must be missing something, because @roo doesn't show up any posts, when i think it should?

i watched bojack s4ep2-5 and i have regrets
