Twitter has publicly launched their #Bluesky discord and theres ton of people joining it right now cause it was just boosted by Jack. I got them to set up a #fediverse channel and many folks are there discussing the fediverse in relation to the future of twitter. I think its important to make our voices heard there, whatever they may be. Right now there are way too many crypto people trying to push that direction. Come along for a ride!


And yes I know, there's a lot of fediverse skepticism for BlueSky, and yes, I have my own skepticism, but skepticism does not mean that good things won't happen, just that it will be a hard fight to make good things happen. I like Jay a lot and think she is very thoughtful (she's the one that did the overview report, and that was definitely a very good document), so I am cautiously hopeful. But this is something best demonstrated by doing so we will see.

It seems the bluesky people over at Twitter have finally picked a lead to start work on their (totally not vaporware) initiative for open and decentralized social media standards. *yawn*

What would #ActivityPub be like in 2021 if #Mastodon never achieved its mainstream status?

No wrong answers.

@Gargron I joined the patreon again to get the app on testflight - and it's superb! This is going to be big.

@wjmaggos @furgar Masnick at Techdirt is perennially on this - a company like Twitter has hit a certain scale where they can not moderate without the dumb algos.

This isn't going to get better at any point either.

@wjmaggos geez Twitter's been suspending everybody lately.

On this day, twelve years ago, Mr. Evan Prodromou published the first fediverse post. We are very happy to see how far the fediverse has come since then, and are looking forward to join it officially once our federation is working.

Happy Birthday, Fedi!
