FTR. I fully support the right of any pregnant person to make their own choice. Taking bodily autonomy away is the opposite of support and care that is often claimed by opponents of abortion. Returning to a past we had thought we had overcome is unacceptable to me.

@mastodonusercount We have returned to our normal user influx pattern.

Are there any other accounts tooting out user graphs like this?

Good news: Learning way too much about operating Mastodon at scale.

Bad news: I am now developing opinions. We have a lot of work to do. I am excited to contribute to the project.

@chadmccullough I took an intro to python course at community college over the winter, which was beneficial due to the way it was structured. I'd echo @lopta's advice, really good material I discovered he (Dr. Chuck) also teaches through Free Code Camp and elsewhere.

@pixelfed watching closely! thanks for the amazing resources

so some time ago I was trying to rebrand into something dumb like and it never took off. The term is still cumbersome and comes across like technobabble. Not sure what would work in its place.

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been...

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

Do you have a blog that's powered by WordPress software?

Did you know you can connect it to the Fediverse so that people on Mastodon and other platforms can interact with it?

You just need to add the ActivityPub WordPress plugin:

You should be able to find this from your blog's plugins menu.

(By the way, this doesn't work on free accounts that are hosted by

I do not know who needs to hear this, but PSA: if you have a WordPress blog, you can install this extension to add ActivityPub support to your blog. It makes it possible to have people follow your blog via ActivityPub services such as Mastodon, receive new posts and interact with it.

OK who can help take Matt Mullenweg up on his offer to bring #Tumblr up to full #indieweb standards? cc: @humanetech

Not a joke: this is a very real opportunity... #openweb

and I just noticed I overlooked the assets:precompile stage of my last Mastodon upgrade, oops!

This /OUTAGES writeup is lovely! Many good things to note and learn from for the wider community

Does anyone else find it outrageous that U.N. agencies keep removing RSS feeds for their updates while prominently featuring Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube accounts on their websites? Our taxes fund these entities. We deserve open access to the content they produce.
