Hello text-only posts!

You can now see text-only posts in your home timeline from accounts you follow. #pixelfed #activityPub

Hey, not a bad start. Maybe as we start getting more creators and new types of videos on, we can start breaking things out into categories and really start playing with the layout.

Here's a demo of the sign-up process in the Mastodon for iOS app, recorded by @DavidBlue :thinkhappy:

I think I'm over the "change fast, break often" phase of my career as a programmer. Next job's gotta be "things are good, we're just making them better".

Hey #Fediverse! There is a new #project: #OpenHospitalityNetwork (#OHN). It helps to connect travellers with those who want to host them. Like AirBnB but better, focusing on the core idea of it.

Website: openhospitalitynetwork.github.

Today's 📅 meeting 6pm CEST:

I think it behooves us to try to understand *why* they’re anti-covid vaccine. I think a lot of it is tribalism… or to say it another way… I think they’re anti-vaxx for the same reason I feel guilty for not wearing a mask in public. Just calling them stupid is lazy. IMO.

Esteemed Fediverse,

there is a policy group meeting in 9 days.
We invite anyone who is interested or not.
It is about the Digital Services Act, calls with the EU and upcoming events.
Bring your topic

#policy #EU #activitypub #fediverse #DSA

Just discovered an #ActivityPub plugin for #Wordpress. That's pretty exciting. I went ahead and installed it. I wonder how that's going to work out for my personal blog.

I personally recommend a federated blogging service such like Plume and Writefreely.These implement with ActivityPub.You can stream your blog article to TL and partially interact with followers(renote,favorite and so on).

I'm happy to report that #fedbox, the generic #ActivityPub service, has had its first federated Create/Update activities exchange this week.

You can follow PeerTube accounts from Mastodon because they are both part of the Fediverse.

When viewed from Mastodon, PeerTube accounts look and work like Mastodon accounts. However, if you click on their profile image you will see their PeerTube page.

For example try going to @pianotv on Mastodon and click on the profile image.

There's a list of interesting PeerTube accounts to follow over on FediFollows:

Consider unfollowing that person that always leaves you feeling worse about things.

Join me and @vibronet tomorrow @ 4pm for another round of OAuth Happy Hour!

I'm giving away a physical copy of my book to everyone who attends live! No need to pre-register, but make sure you join live for instructions on how to get your copy!

Do you think it would be helpful if you could select which rule you think a post/account has violated when making a report instead of having to type it out by hand?
