I dove into the features I'd like to see in AP server and client.

I decided to start planning architecture from user requested features and then formalize them down to structures and protocols.

I started from the subscription (following) process which always drove me nuts in social networks. everywhere it was sick and twisted, and not geeks-friendly. it always lacked the required selectivity. I'd like subscription to be maximally customized.

in ideal, I see three 'kinds' of subscriptions:

1. subscription for some contact - subscription to certain person's posts.

user subscription should contain some contact description, contact address[es], hashtags (tags should be divided into subscribed and ignored ones and have some way to set up their precedence) and regexps for looking through message text (also subscribed and ignored). a 'contact' (physical person) may have multiple addresses on different servers and it's a good idea to join them in a separate abstraction for simplifying the rules.

2. tags subscription - subscription to any set of hashtags (also subscribed and ignored), meaning getting any tagged posts from selected (or all known) servers. it must contain a set of servers to collect tagged posts from or some regexp for server names.

3. some kind of 'groups', like @-tagged subscriptions that must work across all servers. this is quite difficult for realization but it may be useful.

this all looks much more detailed than usually discussed in hashtags talks in AP community. I try to get it all together to clarify the final scheme. that's why I needed some UML editor.

I still think if this is enough for all possible variants of subscriptions.

thanks to Founder Facts for featuring this interview with me about Plausible!

Hi @write_as @writefreely @writeas_dev

I recently asked whether you have plans to realign with #gofed #activitypub library (where you're 364 commits behind) and you said you were indeed considering doing so in the future.

This is just a FYI to mention that now also has a #matrix room at:

Had some spammers join this instance and have since permanently suspended them.

If any others show up that I miss - do message me, promise we will be vigilant to keep this instance spam-free.

We successfully tested Direct Messages between Pixelfed and Mastodon!

The Direct Messages feature will be shipping later today! 🎉

#pixelfed #direct

@gustavo22soares The mobile app will be released soon, it depends on features like Direct Messages.

Twitter evolved from IM status messages, i.e. you had a contacts list, and under every contact, you could see what the contact was currently up to. Twitter took that idea and made the statuses persist after you changed them and allowed you to browse them. Now with #fleets... you have a list of your contacts each displaying what the contact is currently up to...

I kinda hate Twitter's new - but I do think it would be good for to suppport Toots that self-delete after a longer set period of time - say about a week or a month or more. Just so your digital footprint is somewhat self-removing once closer followers have digested what's up.

If you host a website only for yourself, please consider "Referrer-Policy: no-referrer" (or "same-origin").

Because your are the only one using the site, it is very easy to correlate requests to you personally (of course, this could also be done with ip-addresses and dns ptr, but don't make it to easy, ok?).

(Website=anything, including your own masto instance).

Great, for those who thought that all the alt-right pro-nazi #Gab content needed was just a bit more of that Facebook tech culture to make it complete.

@cambridgeport90 Totally agree. I *think* @mozilla may be building that into their future version of open source email client . But need to check. So they might have most of that plus email protocols,.

Windows needs a Microblogging client for the desktop that supports the following:, activitypub, and MicroPub in a single client. I guess would fall technically into that micropub realm, though. I would love to create something like this using one of the languages, like , perhaps. Or #.

Is your open source project still using Slack for its community? Consider:

Mozilla has migrated their chat to Matrix:

Mattermost now offers hosted service with special pricing for OSS projects:

There are probably even more I'm not aware of.

There are good Free options now. Time to get out of the proprietary SaaS lock-in.

I'm excited to share my #apconf2020 talk, "Decentralized Social Media vs the Trolls."

In it, I tell how the #Fediverse, a #decentralized social network, rallied together to isolate an invasive right wing extremist group through codes of conduct, human moderators, and strong moderation tools.

Thanks to @ashfurrow, @emi, @maffsie, @catgirl, @laurelai and all the folks who gave me their time and perspective.
