If you know anyone working on an ActivityPub project and they need any advice/feedback/help or want to spread the word, tell them to DM me! I am more than willing to help or spread awareness! #activitypub #fediverse

I might not be the best person to give advice on #activityPub development, but I do think experienced AP devs should be doing more to help mentor new projects and developers for the sake of the #fediverse.

I'll never forget the times that @Gargron boosted my early Pixelfed posts, but I feel like we're not in that era anymore.

Don't be afraid to ask for help, or be intimidated by follower counts.

We all started something from nothing, and the real ones don't let ego define them 😉

When Clinton accused Trump of paying no federal taxes, he didn't deny it - rather, he said, "That makes me smart."

He wasn't the first rich sociopath to make that claim. Remember when Leona Helmsley told the press "only little people pay taxes?"


Good on . The value and influence Automattic incited are far beyond so many other tech companies and entities with far higher name recognition and balance sheets.

"In an effort to capture the full breadth, reach, and potential of this extensive ecosystem...the first comprehensive analysis of the combined global economy for WordPress [was produced], which was estimated at $596.7 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $635.5 billion by the end of 2021."

I'm working on a research paper about building communities with decentralized web technologies. I've decided to publish weekly progress reports as a way to collect my thoughts and get over my apprehension of sharing my work.

What's the most complete and handy #activitypub library out there? go-fed/activity ?

#needhelp #dev #federation

Just a little sneak peek of a new #activitypub based project I'm working on

Reminder: Apple prohibits Firefox and other Web browsers from allowing extensions in their iOS apps. #anticompetitive #WWDC21

Is it just me, or is #Firefox 89 so much faster than previous versions?

So many of these features are already in btw, like bookmarks.

Others seem like an easy lift for future versions... Editing toots is almost already akin to the Undo Tweets feature...

I missed the actual day, but Wordpress as a publishing platform just turned 18 years old. Very cool.

Would be interesting to know if decentralized social platforms like the #fediverse are closer to #sustainability than centralized platforms with their monstrous datacenters.

The footprint of those is surely going to become an issue going forward, that's explains marquee pre-emptive actions to link them to renewables.

The question is whether intrinsically (and ceteris paribus) #decentralization consumes less (because traffic remains more localized)

We want to give a special thanks to @NGIZero for funding our project.

They have given us the opportunity to work full time on this and build a better alternative for everyone!

@swashberry kind of, not really. can integrate with any Wordpress instance and aggregate content to their managed service via JetPack, but it's not quite federation at the instance / user level.

Ghost is apparently looking at straight up ActivityPub federation, though. I'm strongly considering migrating my blog over if that happens.
Seriously though, taking old social platforms that failed to beat modern walled gardens, and migrating them to fediverse infrastructure would be kind of an amazing way to bootstrap the network.

Step 2. Migrate Myspace backend to Hubzilla or Friendica
Step 3. Build custom frontend that allows for user CSS customization
Step 4. ?????
Step 5. PROFIT

Does anyone running an #activitypub #relay run any script to clean up dead instances? I find it starts to really slow down when there are a lot of dead instances that are still registered. #mastoadmin

If any of you are interested I invite you to join #SocialHub community. We have the Fediverse Futures category to ideate on these things. Or brainstorm on #Lemmy at

We may get a forum section for Domain-specific interest groups:

Recently a bunch of Hospitality Exchange projects started to evaluate #activitypub support to join the #fediverse and standardize interop stuff.
