@Ninjatrappeur Atom (RSS) is not dying. Please don't try and reinvent it. Instead get back into promoting it. And if necessary writing conversion utilities to generate feeds. Even if it's only for your own use.

There is some argument for a translation of Atom into JSON and people do try to do this every so often. It's not a bad idea. But it needs a proper effort to build the standard, tools, libraries and readers to get it off the ground.

Wikipedia is super great

but we should find a way to make it decentralized, because every year we have to donate to maintain their servers

Welcome new folks!

You may notice that this place is a bit different from birdsite. It has no ads, it can be a bit rough around the edges, and when we have drama even the small stuff can rise to epic proportions. That's because all we have is each other. This space; this service is just us. It's just a bunch of volunteers and good good people like you showing up everyday to make it a fun and friendly place.

So, thanks for showing up and making it even better ๐Ÿ’–

The opinions on twitter i see are always very big picture. "why mastodon (always mastodon) can't solve all harassment problems" or something. I think the fedi has a different, smaller scale appeal.

having radio shows, movie nights, local posting culture, that is all wonderful but doesn't involve more than a few dozen people.

It's going back to an actual social network. Nobody can be social with lady gaga or trump.

don't like mastodon's interface?

try out an alternate interface! the two i know of are Pinafore and Halcyon

Pinafore is a single-column client with its own design, at pinafore.social

Halcyon is a near 1:1 copy of the Twitter interface, and is available in a lot of places, one of which is itter.photog.social/login

@Sir_Boops just find new people!!! Look at the local and fed timelines !!!! You donโ€™t have to have everyone who you follow on other sites pack up ship here to make things enjoyable!!!

There is little evidence to suggest that mastodons communicated by "tooting," and even less to suggest that they possessed the dexterity to play with a little paper airplane

Thought: An #OpenSource evangelist that uses a Mac (or Keynote, PowerPoint, Slack, GitHub, etc.) is like someone who promotes veganism, while only avoiding meat in public. Discuss. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I really enjoy reading old programming books. This book, Advanced Pascal Programming Techniques by Paul A. Sand, is now 34 years old but has so many good tips and advices. And an interesting excursion to the implementation details of Apple Pascal... #Pascal #programming #book #books #Apple
