I feel like #activitypub might actually have some chance to replace #rss just because of the way it can clearly specify different events such as

- 'pageX was created'
- 'pageY was updated'
- 'i rearranged the index page but none of the pages were actually changed', if necessary

I feel like one of rss' biggest weaknesses is not having these, and one reason we're using mastodon to syndicate isn't even the social aspects,
but just basic category distinctions like 'here's a link, a boost, a reply'

@dimitrisk I really enjoy what #ActivityPub makes possible and drives forward in that regards, I'm absolutely in awe. :)

We just released a javascript / typescript client for lemmy, useful for any app / lemmy site developers:

I've been working on improving the UX of with @pamdrouin and the changes are now live.

Sad day for the open web: If you are part of the #MozillaLifeboat contact us! We're constantly looking for developers passionate about #privacy and #opensource to improve our completely Google-free email service! Let's continue building a better web. 💪🙌

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

If you haven't seen it yet, you must see this #peertube video of @aral in action in this brilliant speech to MEP's about EU regulation.

Showing eloquently that there is a unique opportunity for EU to walk a different, better path than that of Big Tech, VC startup culture, unicorns, that only lead to more #surveillancecapitalism

That path of course is #smalltech #smallweb and #fediverse

Let's hope they finally listen over there in Brussels and follow that right path.

Don't know why I didn't add this before, but now awesome-humane-tech has a dedicated #Fediverse section.

The grassroots nature of the fediverse, its culture and the openness of the protocols used, such as #activitypub make it the 'land of promise' for humane technology with regards to social networking.

It's #awesome!

I just have to say that the #fediverse is awesome! there are alternatives for everything! 😀

I could use suggestions for my #blog , all you bloggers out there , 2 questions:
1. Best minimalistic blog theme for #wordpress ?
2. Anyone using the #activitypub #plugin ? Thoughts?

Any volunteers to test my demo #wordpress blog's indieweb-ness?
At least webmentions.


#activitypub plugin for #wordpress is working! needs some tweaking but it does work. Blog post about a blogging platform coming 😅
