@w3c advisory committee meeting now kicking off in Beijing with an open day.

@mala good to see the TAG's comments brought up in that call.

@sarnthil @cmos4040 nope. The webapp requests permission for sending the notifications but then the notifications aren't actually sent. @ada @poshaughnessy @luisbg maybe we can help?

Can someone reply to this? I want to check if push alerts are working correctly in #samsunginternet.

@ppk @robin i usually go with the introduction of electricity. Originally put in for domestic lighting, it pretty much enabled the rise of the mechanisation of most home and business tasks up to and including the information age. A good example of a (positive) unintended consequence.

Morning mastoverse... πŸ™„

@taziden @Gargron @yunohost sorry! My misunderstanding. I am overly sensitive apps apps these days! 😳

@taziden @Gargron @yunohost not that I don't applaud innovation, but because Mastodon itself is such a great webapp, why do we need an app? I've got the webapp installed on IOS and Android and it works both on great.

@eeejay yes that's part of the joy of the federated social web.

Like Twitter But Hate The Trolls? Try Mastodon – by Margaret Rhodes, Wired

When I eventually move to a federated node, it would be great to be able to set up a redirect from this account...

READ THIS 55-segment "toot-storm" from @dredmorbius - he's got some thoughts in there about Mastodon, social messaging, centralization and much, much more... mastodon.cloud/@dredmorbius/10

I can confirm the Mastodon progressive web app works very well on Samsung Internet, and presumably Chrome as well (and also installs as a full screen webapp on IOS Safari). No need for any apps.

Mastodon has earned its place as a pinned tab for me along with Inbox, Tweetdeck and Whatsapp web.

@Edent haters gonna hate.

@Gargron any hope of Mastodon eventually migrating to ActivityPub?

@Edent I would say "yes," however mastodon is built on top of the old protocols. The w3c social web working group has a whole new improved set of specs - ActivityPub: w3.org/TR/activitypub/ (which is an evolution of the stack that Mastodon is built on).
