@qwert You can turn that off in System Settings.
We are working with other projects to take ActivityPub to the next level with new features like Ephemeral Stories and Live Streaming.
It will be a great year! #activityPub

Electron is not crossplatform Show more
any more than software that runs in a VMWare virtual appliance is crossplatform. It's not even significantly lighter weight than doing that.
Taking your platform with you doesn't make your software crossplatform.
Did you notice that #xkcd figures have big heads and thin bodies, the opposite of current reality?
Very subversive guy
Let's get some facts down:
- No single person created the #Fediverse
- No single authority controls #ActivityPub
- #ActivityStreams allow federating data
- AS can be readily extended to have new kinds of data
- Instances are the authorities on their own data
We should work towards having decentralized (instances) "AS/AP Authorities" who can extend the protocol and own the extensions, while federating these extensions so other devs can discover them in a centralized manner.
There's no end in sight to Facebook's atrocities.
Facebook paid kids to install its VPN which granted "near limitless access" to their phone activity. https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/29/facebook-project-atlas
climate crisis / deforestation / solarpunk Show more
We're actually capable, if we choose to, to increase the amount of biomass Earth is capable of growing. We just need to change how we organise our cities. Stop covering everything in concrete and allow trees to grow.
This is the #solarpunk I signed up for. In the end, if we don't actually help the planet, everything else is irrelevant.
it's time for my favourite game, Windows or Capitalism, where we try to guess whether a statement applies to windows or capitalism
- it's obnoxiously expensive for no reason
- corporate monopolies allow the big companies to stamp out alternatives and present themselves as the only option, driving up prices to ridiculous levels
- you are constantly pressured to spend money. in fact, if you don't have money, you can't participate at all
- advertisements are a fundamental element of the system
- most people who have souls despise it, but remain complacent because "what are the alternatives? this is the way things are"
- the mere mention of the names of alternatives disgusts many people
- the people in charge don't give a shit about you
trick question!! all of these statements apply to windows AND capitalism!!!!!
Trans Internet Security Risk Show more
Big scary security side eye at the new Trans Browser Extension "Shinigami Eyes" which encourages trans people to tag pages as "trans friendly" and "anti trans".
Have already seen trans friends on social media have their pages on like facebook etc tagged. This can be done by anyone. It turns text links green or red respectively. So basically we're outting each other? Surely a huge dataset of trans people is incredibly stupid and dangerous?
Looks like I can cross Ring products off of my list of things ever to buy
@cj i just tested on another phone. It works! Maybe some caching thing on my iPhone.
@cj There still are no borders at least on my phone. https://mastodon.technology/media/_yPKcHZsiID8kT_SM_Q
@odyssey98 I’m pretty sure it’ll come eventually as they haven’t increased the battery while still increasing clock speeds.
