@resynth1943 I'd say as long as it's regular people with modest followings it can scale without problems; but once there are influencers with millions of followers we need instances that can handle high loads for individual accounts.
@resynth1943 Yes and no. It's less complex to operate smaller instances than a large system. But some features like global trends or a user search covering the entire network are not easily possible with distributed systems so Mastodon doesn't have them.
@resynth1943 Twitter operates at a much larger scale than any Fediverse instance or even the whole Fediverse itself. Being able to support users with millions of followers takes some effort in terms of DevOps.
@markosaric I think it makes sense for domains to google.*, amazon.* to be a first-party set. But with static lists or signed assertions from browser vendors this is again something that benefits only larger multi-brand publishers - who could use this for ad (re)targeting within their network and thus shifts more power to them and away from smaller sites.
Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!
When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!
Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them!
@jeremiahlee That website looks impressive and I like the idea. Also made me find out about hCaptcha, so another Google service for which there's an alternative.
My personal blog / domain is hosted by micro.blog and you can follow it directly from the Fediverse via @lukas.
Still, I wanted to have a separate Mastodon account but not on the official instance (where I was earlier) because it's a #Fediverse after all.
One thing I miss in the social media landscape is a rate-limited network, only allowing enough posts so it takes, say, one hour per week to catch up with 500 followed accounts.
That way I could actually stay up to date with all of my friends I made around the world, the quiet and the active ones.
In my opinion, their cryptographic setup is sound and there are no privacy or security risks even with new owners.
I can agree on not wanting to invest much in Keybase when you're unsure about their future, but I see no reason to #DeleteKeybase now unless you want to point a middle finger to them and Zoom for the acquisition.
Come to think of it, I want #mastodon to be better than #twitter. And therefore, so should the apps. What if @Tusky and @fedilab had anti-addictive behavior features like optional pagination: people could turn it on, decide to read one or two pages and then go to sleep for example. Endless scrolling makes this difficult and fuels addiction.
INDIEWEB.SOCIAL is an instance focused on the #Openeb, #Indieweb, #Fediverse, #Mastodon #Selfsovereign #identity (#SSI), #Humanetech and #Calm technologies evolution.
