I don't think I would ever want to do anything related 's. It may be a good idea but the execution currently is horrid.

There's even a whole TWO HOUR LONG video on why the entire thing is bad, and I recommend giving it a watch: m.youtube.com/watch?v=YQ_xWvX1

If you're concerned about where the world is heading, you might want to check out some of the activists on the Fediverse who are trying to do something about the world's problems:

...there are also campaign groups...

...and you may want to check out some privacy tools that can help people stay safe:

If you have any more accounts to suggest for these categories, please let me know.

I think it would be better if there was an option to open the sidebar from the bottombar @Tusky

Tusky app is pretty neat, however I kind of got stuck when hiding to the topbar because I couldn't access the sidebar because of Android's swipe from edge to go back gesture, lol.

@robdaemon Hopefully in the future you won't even need a GH account, after Gitea gets federation!

Most people don't care about underlying tech or protocols so don't overly promote Fediverse integration as a major selling point.

Wordpress doesn't shout from the rooftops that it outputs Atom feeds by default. Yet, thanks to this, over 400 million websites now push out Atom feeds for aggregators and feed readers to pick up.

GitHub and StackExchange don't make a big song and dance about their Atom integration either because most of their users won't care. It just happens.

Over 4 billion people use the Web. Fewer than 10 million people use the Fediverse.

If you're a developer and wish to make the Fediverse more popular, building Fedi tools for users already in the Fediverse will barely change that number. Building Web services that just happen to have Fediverse integration will make for a massive change.

@tchambers Hey I see that this page works fine on other instances but not here? Any reason why?

OwnCast is a sort of Fediverse alternative to Twitch. It lets people host their own video livestream with a chat window at the side, and OwnCast accounts can be followed from Mastodon etc.

You can find out more about @owncast at owncast.online, and they have a directory of streamers at directory.owncast.online

If you follow an OwnCast account from Mastodon, you will see a post from them in your timeline telling you when the account has gone live.

Also, if you follow an OwnCast account or boost its posts, this will appear in the livestream's chat window (see the attached picture).

Some OwnCast accounts you can try following right now include:

@live (soulful house music shows)

@hatnix (Linux gaming streams)

@Hamish - (retro gaming streams)

(Note that some OwnCast accounts do not have Fediverse switched on yet, so they won't be visible on Mastodon etc)

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

HTML still feels like the weird uncle living in the attic compared to the bling-bling-wearing celebrities that are modern CSS and ES2022+ JavaScript.

A renewed effort to modernize HTML and port more imperative JavaScript APIs to the world of declarative markup would go a long, long way in (a) placating the document web folks, and (b) encouraging the application web folks to bump HTML up in priority and prominence.


Currently trying to find more people to follow on here, if you have any recommendations please tell! Mostly interested in design and web development :D

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

It's so upsetting to see a wild field being mowed, for no reason at all. A field that I know supports frogs, dragonflies, bees, geese, and so much life if it is just left to grow until later in the summer. So senseless, so sad. The way humans just act without thinking about how they're impacting so much other life. We need more people to stop, think, notice, and care about all life.

From Twitter: Saying #Accessibility is an “enhancement” to web or mobile content is like saying flour is an enhancement for a cake or cookies. It’s part of the recipe to making web and mobile content that is fully usable and accessible for everyone #A11y #Webdev #Mobile
