I truly believe that #ActivityPub (the protocol behind #Mastodon) has the potential to redefine the way we create and connect on the internet. But to get there, we need to spread the word - a network is only as valuable as the people in it.
I want to get that ball rolling - I wrote a blog post about how ActivityPub is going to change the internet. Check it out here: https://jeremydormitzer.com/blog/what-is-activitypub-and-how-will-it-change-the-internet/. And please boost/share to your other networks so we can keep making the Fediverse bigger!
@dayglochainsaw haha I hope so! I don't think it's reached critical mass yet - at some point enough people are in the network that it reaches an inflection point and starts growing exponentially. We need more users on existing apps and new apps that implement ActivityPub for that to happen.
@jdormit understandable. You mentioned paying for it being a problem, how does wikipedia do it? They don't run ads and they've been around for years. Why not just take whatever they're doing and replicate it?
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!
