I appreciate Substack and what it represents as a platform that democratizes content while respecting writers.

But the fact of the matter is, its lack of customization will hurt it over time.

ActivityPub can be confusing and/or hard to test or develop against.

I started a new side project called FediDB to help Pixelfed and other implementations debug federation issues.

It will be launching soon, need to test DMs and Federated Stories in Pixelfed 😅

I'm eager to work with other projects on this!

A few of us are working to restart the Tech Workers Coalition newsletter. We published our first issue yesterday: news.techworkerscoalition.org/

As the issue says: "Learning about how we’re all connected and building relationships to make positive change across the industry is a slow but necessary process."

@ticky Well, something like @Tutanota is an encrypted email already, but not really sure it’s actually PGP that’s true...

Just discovered Chronus today. What a lucky find! Reminded me a little bit of The Mute Gods and Volbeat for sure, but some reviewer had the foresight that influences of the good old Ghost are also clearly apparent.

I mean, like the OLD Ghost band, before all that royalties and face-reveal drama happened. Which is just as well, since I don't think the pre-Prequelle Ghost sound is ever coming back, and that was a shame.

Until today, of course:

@thor I mean staying home and working on projects you didn’t have time for isn’t such a bad idea...?

@ink_slinger Feeling like a slacker is a fault of our keeping busy. I always think of relaxing as a form of intellectual work for the mind if you will...
