Transmutable News Weekly issue 17 is fresh off of the presses (if presses were web sites) and in this issue I cover:
📰 The Base Mesh
📰 A #Glitch switch
📰 #Weron trustnets
Get in while the getting is good! 👇

Bloggers should put a link to their feed in an accessible place for people to see. We should promote Atom/RSS more.

Do I have friends on here that formally do web accessibility consulting services? I would love to have a contact on hand to point people who would be willing and able to pay for such services in the future.

pro tip: use hard dates when they make sense (lean roadmap)

- motivates the team to move on to the next step
- helps setting and clarifying priorities
- helps to avoid too many meetings with stakeholders

(don't stick to your roadmap, change it and over-communicate!) 🤓

A change in software over the last decade that I've noticed is the inability for the user to say "No". I maybe first noticed this with iOS updates where the options were to "Install Now" and "Later". Maybe it's just me imagining it but I feel like I experience this more and more where the choices a user has are 1. Do what we want now and 2. Do it later. Even worse is when they use the 'voice' of the user, as if the request comes from your preference like "Remind Me Later"

Hi #Fediverse and especially tech-oriented folks among you 👋

Conveying the message just received from @how that the #SocialHub server is up and running again. Problems with it going down likely solved and caused by Hetzner rollout of changes to their IPv6 handling.

You are all welcome to SocialHub community where we discuss and evolve the open standards of the fedi, #ActivityPub and #ActivityStreams and others, and where federated project developers exchange knowledge

*💰-centered design:

because + cannot agree on the FEES, the Amazon iOS app does NOT allow you to buy e-books

If you just came here and don't know how to "fill your timeline", remember that besides following people with the same interests (there's plenty in #introduction / #introductions), you can enable the advanced web interface in your preferences.

Create your own "content columns" for every topic you're interested in!

Just pin the hashtags you want, even multiple in one column if you wish (like #cats & #dogs), or exlude some you don't want to see (like I did in the #art column in this screenshot).

If you're coming from Twitter, you might not recognize the "post privacy" option.

Basically, each post you send on Mastodon can have 1 of 4 privacy settings: Public, Unlisted, Followers-only, or Direct.

Basically, Public goes far and wide, Followers-only is nice for more personal stuff (and can't be boosted -- retweeted), and Direct means it's like a Direct Message to any and all users you mention (tag) in your post.

Bet they don't have *this* emoji on twitter :catjam:

every product + every feature needs to be open for iteration and therefore changes in their timeline (time horizons). yes, I'm just ditching my timeline roadmap!
