Thanks all, & help us get out the word of this new community!

@fedisearch will you be including everything #activitypub like #peertube #writeas #pixelfed #funkwhale etc?

This could be THE killer fedi app:) Giving it a try right now.

Do you already enjoy your account at You're familiar with basic linux stuff? Be a part of #decentralization and setup your own #matrix for friends and family! It's quite easy with this ansible script

Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit. You can follow their official account at:

➡️ @LemmyDev

You can try the flagship instance at

They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)

@dublinux The wiki is our attempt to build an exhaustive and regularly updated reference for all things fedi:

Thanks heaps to @humanetech who has done heaps of pruning and updating over the last few months while I've been AWOL :)


Congratulations 🎉 @lightone with the 3 year anniversary of Fediverse Party and many thanks for all the *fantastic* work you have done to craft this beautiful 💖 #fediverse resource!

Don't know about ? 'Bout time to pay a visit :)

The site adresses #fedi and fedi dev audience quite well. I volunteer in your efforts to make this site kick some ass in reaching the unkempt masses beyond our realms. Get more ppl out of that toxic mess.

Who helps us?

I've decided to establish a Guppe group ( @fyre_exyt ) to start building a team around Fyre Exyt, a project I've been envisioning since I quit FB in 2006 (?) to create a detailed guide to escaping the datafarms. Ideally it would take the form of a website or app that would walk users through the process. Maybe also guides for installing apps, choosing hosts, and creating accounts on replacement services.


Who wants a decentralised github?

No servers or self hosting, no third parties.

Written in Rust!

Let us know what you'd like:

@dredmorbius there's a huge UX problem that Mastodon seems to be deliberately ignoring: most people don't want to follow, or discover, random new people. They mostly want to follow their existing circles. That's how most people use social media. Mastodon makes it impossible to find the people you already know without you asking each of them for their fediverse handles.

That's something I'm aiming to solve with #Smithereen. (I'm writing from a Mastodon instance because I don't support polls yet)

I don't want Firefox to disappear. Please switch to Firefox if you haven't already.

I know I am not alone in saying that I have read dozens of nearly identical posts from developers over the past two decades. If you are not emotionally prepared for the responsibilities of managing a growing community, then please rethink the launch of your passion project. Dumping your 35K users when things get tough is not a strategy. It's why people become reluctant to invest in new platforms or instances. /rant #invidious

@onepict Frightening indeed. I had a rant about this back in August. Peter Thiel is a cancer on society and #Palantir recently went public on the NYSE.

I just released a status update on my #Hash2Pub hastag federation project for the fediverse:

Especially #Haskell devs are warmly welcome to contribute or criticise my code quality, but all other comments from the #ActivityPub sphere are welcome as well.
