I had a StatusNet account until Evan killed identi.ca years ago; a shit-ton of great people I talk with here every day have accounts on Pleroma or GNU Social. Some are their developers.
#Mastodon benefited handsomely from there being a large community of dedicated people in Fediverse before Mastodon was a thing. Let's acknowledge that and stop being so condescending.
#Introduction time! I'm a hacktivist, free software advocate, strong supporter of free and open internet. Used to be a policy hacker. Co-founded the Warsaw Hackerspace.
Currently trying to make sure journalists at @OCCRP have the tools and training to safely expose corruption and organized crime.
Also, I bake bread, sail, and dance Lindy Hop. So, there's that.

#WeAreNameless is a monthly community project on the Fediverse where Hackers and their friends watch old sci-fi movies.
Got suggestions? Doubts?
Do I have a ticket where I am tracking this, you ask?
Why yes, yes I do:
@plsburydoughboy No: Twitter people should use the Fediverse, not abuse it. Boosting their stuff is abusing the Fediverse, as it does not give the agency to respond.
TFW you need to refactor your code to use a completely new (to you) technique of dealing with some particular problem, using technology you don't really feel that comfortable with...
...and 2h later stuff actually works:
I am very okay with this.
Also, #Samizdat can now chain multiple delivery plugins. Which means I should now be able to implement caching using Caching API.
For those new to the #Samizdat thing:
1. if you want to test it, load it, and then reload it -- or even close the tab and open a new one to load it again; this way the ServiceWorker will kick in and stuff will start happening;
2. it will not work without JS (sorry...), and it will not work in incognito/private mode.
To those who had already looked at it: I would be super interested if your service worker kicked in! You might not get the full functionality until the service worker reloads.
#Samizdat is moving forward nicely. We now have some basic explanation on the landing page, a nicer display of methods used to fetch content, and (just implemented, hot from the CI/CD pipeline!) info on which resources were fetched using which method.
Check it out:
Pretty sweet, if I may be so bold to say so!
This is still Proof-of-Concept quality, and so many things can be done so much better. But it works already, in a way.
