Are there any #fediverse people around the Greater Phoenix area?

Right now the only Los Angeles-area journalist I know is @passthejoe, there's gotta be more out there.

Twitter's launching a campaign to mark .

Local journalists are exactly the type of persona who should be adopting the open web / ActivityPub social cloud.

Ever wonder why your local county or municipality didn't use a .gov domain? They used to cost $400 per year to keep registered. Now they're free:

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

Twitter is a website. Fediverse is an ecosystem

The joinpeertube.org 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 joinpeertube.org ? 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 hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2

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.
