Pinned toot

just a semi-regular reminder that I maintain a list of AP implementations and it sees infrequent update from time to time:

Better lists are available elsewhere such as the Awesome-Fediverse list or the Feneas/Fediverse.Party watchlist for activitypub apps:



Thread 🧵 of 501(c)(3) public charities you can support instead of the FSF, if you care about its mission:

Twitter is a website. Fediverse is an ecosystem

The Soyuz rocket from @Roscosmos rolled out to its launch pad today in Kazakhstan. It will lift off Friday taking three Exp 65 crew members to the space station. More pix...

The lists white supremacist #PeerTube instances. One instance actively describe themselves as "white nationalist". It's not subtle.

What the fuck? Were you aware of this, @Framasoft ? Do you run ? If so, why are you linking to and endorsing a site that is actively promoting Nazis?

Has anyone else seen this think-tank "meta-proposal" for Twitter, Inc's reinvention of the Fediverse?

What is going on here and why can't these groups recognize the existing open social cloud ecosystem?

You may see some people on the Fediverse use Twitter-style verification symbols such as :verified: next to their names.

These are NOT verfied users, it's just a custom emoji which anyone can add. Because the Fediverse is decentralised, there is no direct verification system and these symbols carry no meaning.

However, if you are on Mastodon and you own a website, you CAN verify yourself as the site's owner using this tip:

Bluesky thinking of a "governance" body of the fedivers - If it does not have elephants running around throwing paper planes it's likely the wrong structure #bluesky thinking

Another fantastic @[email protected] piece. While I'm completely sympathetic to folks finding a place to write & get paid, he must know another corporate Silicon Valley silo isn't the real solution. I wish he'd talk about what's really needed too. #fediverse

anyone read that Guardian / alt-right Fediverse article yet? It's *wild* how off-base this is.

Literally the only real reason anyone cares about anything blockchain-related is because they think if they speculate, it'll make them rich. There's literally no other reason. And they're willing to risk the future of this world to become rich off of pure speculation. Ugh.

ugh. just disabling trending hashtags on mastodon because, well, yeah. enough.

Thanks for bringing in our 6th year with us this month! 🎂

my hot take on what Twitter is doing lately: 

"Those who do not understand the Fediverse are condemned to reinvent it, poorly."

Rethinking #Humanity and the Role of the #Fediverse

Yes that's a grand title, dear fedizens :)

With #FediverseFutures on #SocialHub I encourage all of you to think about bigger pictures and roles fedi can play in them.

With the enormous rise in popularity of #decentralization we should think to what extent fediverse is applicable. Are we mostly Microblogging++ or can our tech be a true backbone to society?

Think out-of-the-box, join forum discussion. Boosts welcome..
