Hi there I'm new here. I'm a kind of web development learner. And I'm fascinating with the open source world. That's why I'm here. How are u doing?

#Apple made a big announcement about proposed APIs they wouldn't implement because of privacy concerns. But when an issue is reported that allows a users files to be stolen, they want to wait more than a year to release a fix.

Hi @ics I used to be on sonomuu but I reduced my Mastodon instances down to two :)
Are you watching @musicians ? All of us should watch and use it to form an ad hoc group.

Hello, I haven't been searching out people to follow here, yet Mastodon is my favorite federated platform. I'm into

I'm excited to get back to working on #Readlebee so I can share book reviews more easily here... Unfortunately, I'm going to have to finish the actual app before I add #ActivityPub support because I'm still a little hazy on getting the protocol completely working.

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. :)
