So the Verge article for which I wrote some thoughts about Jack Dorsey announcing #Bluesky is out and it used only a few sentences from what I came up with, so I wanna share the full thing...

I was asked, if Twitter did indeed adopt #ActivityPub instead of coming up with something new, would it be better or worse for the decentralized social web?

Twitter launches a new initiative for distributed social networks, interesting, hope they will use ActivityPub twitter.com/jack/status/120476

CWI Lectures: slides now available.

Including Guido van Rossum talking on Python through the years :-)


Lijkt me een goed idee, maar dan wel een inlog/identificatiesysteem waarbij de macht bij de gebruiker ligt en niet bij ee partij die vervolgens allerlei data kan gaan combineren fd.nl/beurs/1323728/sleutelen-

Very nice Spotifyplaylist, Pete Keeley's 'a-z songs', 'only' 69 hours of music 😉 (can we finally get that 'continue listening' feature on Spotify?) open.spotify.com/playlist/2rJv

If I don't land any freelancer gigs this week, I might need to take a break from Pixelfed development 😔

Interesting new WordPress plugin: Matomo Analytics for WordPress,
a full self hosted analytics solution inside your WordPress site. Not the best solution if you're managing multiple sites, but for small clients it could be a solid solution: matomo.org/blog/2019/10/matomo

Hello Fediworld 👋

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:

(or swiso.org for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two 🙂

@ton @frank Ik hoop dat jullie een goede indiecamp hebben dit weekend! En ik hoop ook dat ik een volgende keer er eindelijk wel bij kan zijn....beetje te veel weekenden van huis geweest afgelopen tijd, dus ik moet even prioriteiten stellen....

If you see an open-source project that has support for Twitter (in one way or another, could even be just linking to Twitter profiles in a website theme) but not Mastodon, go file an issue and ask kindly for it to support Mastodon, too.

Let's help this network grow!

The new mobile web layout is live!

You can add Pixelfed to your home screen and use it like a native app on Android and iOS devices.


Does anybody here know what the largest PeerTube instance is? Largest as in most video's, users and used bandwidth? mastodon.xyz/@gvenk/1027219017

Zou PeerTube al zoiets aankunnen, zo’n uberplatform van alle omroepen? Of gewoon iedereen een eigen PeerTube instantie en die dan met elkaar laten praten 😄PeerTube zal technisch nog wel niet helemaal geschikt zijn voor zulke grote hoeveelheden data, maar het is toch leuk om te dromen 😉
