#RPG Folks: There's a Friendica server at https://rpgtable.top, part of the Fediverse, designed originally as a refuge for the G+ rolegaming community and expanding/revising its role in the larger community as people join and participate. I'm one of the admins. Check out our instance! #ttrpg #friendica #tabletop_rpg #gaming #games
What's the goal of activitypub.actor? I see more and more @mentions of such "accounts" in my timeline. Clicking such handle doesn't open a profile preview of any kind on the instance, but leads to an external page (i.e., twitter.activitypub.actor/Namecheap) that tells me I can't interact with it neither follow it. Why would I want to see it in my Fediverse timeline then? 🤔
Remarkable that #Keybase, launched before #Mastodon, has 10 times less users. Even taking into account numerous Fedibots. Despite the fact that Keybase was built around social network aspect, idea gained by its creators from OKCupid startup.
Non-technical friends won't catch up on PGP no matter how many stickers you add.
On the other hand, I've used Fediverse as email and messenger for a year now. It has potential of becoming both decentralized *and* private. And suitable for non-tech folks.
a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.
By the way, #Friendica mascot is now official. Its name is Flaxy O'Hare 🐰
I hope it'll help the number of Friendica nodes grow faster 😅

"In this paper we presented Cwtch, a protocol for building metadata resistant applications based on Ricochet. The protocol solves a number of open problems with contemporary metadata resistant designs, providing asynchronous, anonymous multi-party communication through the use of untrusted,
We have released an open source prototype of Cwtch which can be found at https://cwtch.im/ ."
Ok, there is a couple of bugs that I need to fix but they are 'tolerable things'. My plan is to publish a public test server so you can create accounts this weekend, so I can fix possible bugs as soon as possible. Federation should work by this weekend (at least I hope so, basic functionality between servers seems to work). Stay tuned and expect bugs ⌛

Boosts and feedback appreciated!
