When Public Speaking Goes Wrong - a bunch of helpful tips from @davatron5000 from his career of speaker sweats. https://daverupert.com/2020/01/when-public-speaking-goes-wrong/
The 2021 Game Developers Conference won’t have in-person gatherings after all https://www.theverge.com/2021/2/18/22290109/gdc-digital-only-masterclass-showcase-2021 #news
I’ve always made it a point to get my news directly from the respective sources. I follow them directly with my RSS reader or subscribe and have their app on my iPad. But also, #DeleteFacebook

DIDs are interesting! Especially because they could also support another thing I think we need: Anonymous Identities.
For whistleblowers and those who live in places without the right of free speech, Anonymous Identities only they can use, and which may be part of a cryptographic signature on a post, are very important.
Yes, but these are “private” repositories.
Here are all:
There is no ActivityPub in the “Network” column yet.
@rhiaro : WANT! ;)
You are right with mastodon, could be the same cause posting as toot does not even require UI changes!
It would be the task of mastodon to quickly communicate with us so that we, the AP implementors could to a did:social or did:AP or whatever …
Loving “Rick Astley (thank you for your inspiration)” ;)
Posthenge. Pilehenge? Either way they look cool on a foggy evening.
Hmm… There's a did:twit method allowing you to use Twitter as the third party to establish identity. https://github.com/did-twit/did-twit/blob/master/spec/index.md
But I can find nothing similar for mastodon. Mind you, the did:twit method spec could be used without change with Mastodon! I wish they had named it did:social or something… 😕
There's also a did:peer method for P2P. https://identity.foundation/peer-did-method-spec/#verification-using-a-trusted-third-party-channel
Lemmy is the Fediverse's alternative to Reddit, allowing discussion and link-sharing in a familiar format. It's FOSS and federated, so different communities are hosted on different servers.
It's currently only federating between Lemmy servers, but it will eventually federate with other Fediverse server types like Mastodon etc.
There's one thing I think the #Fediverse is missing: Federated identities.
Let's suppose I have a #Mastodon identity. (I do. I even operate my own Mastodon server so that identity is fully under my control.) But now I want to participate in a different Fediverse activity, say on a Lemmy server – now I have to create a new identity there, one entirely disconnected from my 'main' identity here on Rusted Neuron.
This seems both wasteful and overly complicated from a UI perspective.
Aggregated again some details about what I've been doing in the #go-ap project and it's test applications: #fedbox, the generic #activitypub service, and #littrme, the brutal link aggregator and discussion platform.
Mostly I've been working on creating a sqlite storage for ActivityPub documents. It's not done yet, but the end is in sight.
Handling specific Object IDs or Public addressing is, obv., easy but what about collections?
If the types of collections were limited, that'd be doable but, as far as I understand the spec., any collection technically qualifies.
And you can't (easily) just grab the collection to check if any of your users reside in said collection since it could be paginated.
Matrix is an open standard for decentralized real-time communication. The specification is production-ready and bridges to tons of silo products like Slack, Gitter, Telegram, Discord, and even Facebook Messenger. This lets you use Matrix to link together disjoint communities in one place, or create an alternative communication method that works with, but is independent of, communication silos.
You can create your own self-hosted Matrix chat for as little as $3.50 USD… https://victoria.dev/blog/create-a-self-hosted-chat-service-with-your-own-matrix-server/
