Thinking of a couple of hours of #factorio tonight.
I'll be at #FOSDEM. I'm interested in go-fed (AP in #golang) and getting folks writing #ActivityPub extensions into decentralized but federating spec-owning authorities. Who wants to meet up at FOSDEM? I would like to make sure to block out specific times to meet with folks to have these sorts of discussions.
Doesn't have to be 1:1 discussions either.
Hey fediverse admins, have you made sure your instance is being counted by https://the-federation.info/ ? I love being able to respond with that stats site URL when people say "nobody uses federated social networks" elsewhere on the web :) It now counts nodes running any one of 36 server apps, across 9 federation protocols, including #OStatus, and #ActivityPub, reporting about 2 1/2 million users.
Let it be known that today I finally got the go-fed-tool to not just generate #ActivityStreams, but any extension that builds on ActivityStreams, and recursively on top of extensions.
Last major things to do before I work on the "pub" side of go-fed/activity:
- Resolver, PredicateResolver
- Managing `context` strings
- Migrate unit tests to new code generated stuff
Arnold Schwartzenegger themed death #metal. With songs like:
- I Need Your Clothes Your Boots Your Motorcycle (Terminator)
- Who Told You You Could Eat My Cookies? (Jingle All The Way)
- Come on, Do it, Do it, Come on, Come on, Kill me, Do it Now (Predator)
I just read The Daily Dot article and it is clear the author has only looked at:
- Specific Public Blog posts
- Signed up for cybre.space's instance
- A brief and editorialized interview
What else I am missing? It is clear the research was not very thorough. No mention of the elephant in the room: #ActivityPub. Comes across as a hit piece against Gargron. As an outsider to the queer community, I can only say my impression is that it's meant to dissuade the queer community from joining Mastodon.
LOL In Flames's "(This Is Our) House" has a 0% overall rating. Deservedly. It's really cringey.
https://forum.enough.community/c/events/prepare-fosdem-2019 is now public for #ActivityPub round table preparation.
I hope this will motivate people to get a bit more involved. It's only 2 weeks left to #FOSDEM2019, so I start worrying about the community's capacity to act collectively and bring something interesting at FOSDEM.
I am taking my "decentralized authorities, centralized knowledge" idea at the end of my recent blog post, and am exploring it: having #ActivityPub and #ActivityStreams extensions live on the Fediverse itself, to allow self-forming communities to get together to develop their own AP extension *without* the overhead of requiring a "blessing" from a centralized authority. All while still being centrally discoverable by other ActivityPub developers.
This is the kind of internet comment that I find, frankly, one of the lowest forms of behavior. It is a lazy toxicity-primed mindset masquerading as intellectualism.
I don't put up with it and call it out.
@papey Hey Morty. Nice avatar *buuuurrrrpppp* Morty.
Today is a relaxing day. I'll either be working on getting go-fed to v1, or playing #factorio.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
