After a few days and only looking into code and integration tests it's very rewarding seeing that connecting a bunch of streams, SourceRefs in a cluster and akka-http finally delivers a downloadable file to the browser. And worked at first try. Today I'm happy.

The blogging platform #Plume aims to be a federated open source alternative to #Medium, and is under active development.

It's still at a pre-Alpha stage, but you can get regular updates from the lead developer at @BaptisteGelez (the account is on a Plume instance but it federates through #ActivityPub, so you can follow it on Mastodon etc).

There's a demo Plume instance at:

#facebook has been "apologising" for over a decade
It doesn't change its behaviour
It gets worse
It's like #microsoft with its serial corruption and crimes
Sometime you just need to say "enough" and blacklist people/corporations

Internet Nostalgia/Trivia Time! The Bozo Filter or Killfile was basically what today we'd call a mute or block. Add someone to your newreaders bozo filter and blissfully go on reading without seeing their messages (although you might still see replies). That's right, there's no reason for social media services to see this as some weird new idea, it goes back more than thirty years.

More usenet memories. Kibo! Kibo was the usename used by a person who because (in)famous for showing up any time they were mentioned. Eventually revealing they were simply running grep on the news feed to let the computer point them to any post with "kibo" showing up anywhere. Even resulting in a verb form, kiboizing, for the practice of searching for your own name/nickname/username.

So, what do you call a Startup that didn't work out?

I want to vote for calling it an Endup.

Thanks, over and out.
