Thinking of that backend. We only touched the tip of #activitypub #fediverse iceberg in terms of capabilities and potential (mostly Microblogging).

Task-oriented development, bringing different app/business domains to the fedi, get them to interoperate:

Long-term I'm interested in fedi-supported Alternative Reality Gaming, reimagining social networking that encourages people to interact offline, engage in real-world fun:

@Stoori couple of federated Goodreads alternatives in the works. Check the #activitypub application watchlist:

Soon our suffering will be over :)

@dsfgs @dansup @grishka

You're referring to Suggested Posts that can have that issue.

Trunk is more like people saying "Hey, I like to talk about this and that subject" and then you add a bunch of them to your Following, which fills your personal timeline based on your topics of interest and you go from there.

You and I are people that discover a following on our own but many others aren't like that. They are disappointed with what they see and the federated timeline is full of crap to them.

@grishka Yeah exactly, I don't think any other fedi project does this yet.

I'm working on making the Discover API produce more relevant recommendations using non-invasive signals like follow relationships and hashtags used.

I'd love to discuss the technicals with you if you're interested, I could talk for hours about this but I don't have anyone to discuss this with lol.

Asked some friends to use Pixelfed, they didn't know who to follow.

Empty timelines is not good for onboarding or new user experience.

Adding Suggested Posts to an empty timeline will encourage users to discover and engage with content without having to follow someone.

I feel incredibly blessed that Pixelfed has grown so much over the past year.

Total users, posts and active users have doubled, and our project is among the top 5 most popular.

Though we haven’t had our viral moment like Mastodon or PeerTube, I’m confident that when we do, we’ll be ready.

I look forward to the next 3 years and beyond! 😁 #pixelfed #activityPub #Fediverse

If you’re developing ethical alternatives to Big Tech, please set aside 50 minutes and watch a talk on experience design that I gave eight years ago. I promise you’ll have a fun time and whatever it is you’re making will be better for it.


Idea: Standardized code of conduct documents for ActivityPub instances similar to MIT/GPL for open source, that not only includes current moderation policies, but also a sort of philosophy for how future moderation policies are chosen.

Would help users make better choices of servers, as some servers are run by admins that ban topics they don't personally like. #mastodon #fediverse

Are you looking for people to follow on Mastodon and the Fediverse?

Click below for a directory of hundreds of recommended follows organised into 47 topics:


(If a category has several pages of follows, click "show older" at the bottom to see the next page.)

This is just a tiny fraction of accounts on here, but hopefully it will give people's timelines a good start.

Please do share this with anyone you think might benefit, for example people new to the Fediverse.

Hi fedi, glad to have some more news for you. Today we've launched our webchat and Tor onion services.

Webchat is available at:

And information on connection via Tor is available here:

Please note: Tor requires an existing account with CertFP/ECDSA challenge configured.

We know that these gateways, and Matrix, are a big deal to some projects, so I hope we can continue to welcome projects and hopefully we have news about Matrix tomorrow!

Is there an #activityPub server that I can self-host that'll give me access to mastodon, pixelfed, peertube, etc... and let me post/follow/etc.. on each of these?

In parallel I'm reading the #activitypub spec to get a better understanding of capabilities 😅

Hot take: the joinpeertube instance list is actually the most useless way of discovering instances that actually have anything good on them.
Join me and @vibronet for another round of OAuth Happy Hour this afternoon! Bring your questions or just listen to us chat about what's new in the world of OAuth! 🍻 3pm Pacific!
