Been meaning to set one of these up for the Instance for a long time.

But with the kind suggestion from @obsolete29, just got this live today.

Appreciate anyone's support to help us keep this labor of love of hosting, managing and evolving this instance going strong.

What do you think are features that must be or should be included in #ActivityPub in the future?

Additional info:

For example, "liking" and "sharing" are part of the specification.

Note that e.g. Mastodon implements more than just the ActivityPub specification. So the question is also what features should be implemented by all instances on the Fediverse (incl. e.g. PeerTube).

FYI: Current ActivityPub specification:

The web doesn't have to be "five giant sites filled with screenshots of the other four" (h/t @tveastman!) - with interoperability, co-ops, nonprofits and startups can demonopolize the net.

Is there a specific term for an instance of deja vu where you're sure you have entered in this exact same 6-digit 2FA code before?

The equilibrium I've found is to continue staying off Twitter, off Reddit, off most major social media platforms. I write on my blog, my RSS subscribers read it, and maybe I post it to Lobsters if I really care to. And Mastodon.

If I were *really* smart, though, I'd avoid looking at the comments, the WordPress stats, the referrers… That stuff can drive you nuts if you let it.

If the camera bulges on these phones keep growing, they're going to pop right off and become their own devices.

Gitea has just joined the Fediverse on their very own instance, you can follow them here:

Gitea is a free open source git platform, a self-hostable privacy-friendly alternative to Github. You can find out more on their website at:

There's a good video about Gitea by @hexdsl at:

Welcome @gitea to the fediverse on their very own instance!

@grey why would you want an activitypub server for that? Or could it be a regular blog, that also has an activitypub endpoint (e.g. you can run your own WordPress instance that also is an activitypub instance)? If it is just for ease of posting, would the micropub standard be useful? I'm trying to figure out what you're setting out to achieve?

@grey feels like the #indieweb concept, a lot of different implementation are ongoing : WithKnown, Wordpress, Drupal, a whole bunch of stattic serverless sites .search, see indiewebify,

@grey in addition to Plume and WriteFreely, there is also an ActivityPub integration plugin for #WordPress that works really well.

Is there any activitypub server that is geared more towards blogging rather than microblogging?

Like the difference between and

With twitter I can post a very tiny amount of text without any markup or images in it. (But I can attach images to a post.)

With blogger I can type an several large books worth of text and I can insert images or diagrams or videos throughout it. Anywhere I want.

Is there one more like blogger?

In no particular order, web sites like OpenStreetMap, Wikipedia, Archive.Org, Sci-Hub, tools like I2P, Tor, IRC, GPG, OMEMO, OTR, and open and federated protocols like Jabber, Email, Diaspora and ActivityPub are the most important projects on the internet and should be protected and exalted.

It's good to see Pixelfed trending. I have written about Pixelfed on my site. I decided to try following my own Pixelfed profile via Aton Feed in the QuiteRSS feed reader to see how things look. I also thought it would be an interesting way for readers of my site who do not have Pixelfed to see our extra content and get a feel for the platform, so I turned it into a New Leaf Journal article.

An interesting write-up from another @freshrss user.

I recently asked for suggestions for interesting Internet / telecoms / tech law, policy, and tech blogs with RSS feeds, and I got some useful suggestions:
