Sometimes you want to take a picture, capture how the morning light looks filtering through the trees; your cooled skin; the sound of birds.
But you can never smell the air in that photo. You can't look around to see the rest of the world from that spot you stood, capturing a split second of light.
The only way to remember it is to sit for a while; feel it as deeply as you can; accept that it'll never be as good as it is right now.
This is new & exciting. I'm looking forward to meeting lots of positive tooters 😁
I've been an indie author - #histfic - for 6 years & learn something every day. Admittedly, I forget loads of stuff too 🤪
Hey #Writing people, what tags do you use to post about your writing, your process, your published works?
Looking forward to speaking at ActivityPub Conf 2019!
#introduction Hi! I'm JuJu, local sheep and writer!
I'm known more on Ao3 and tumblr, but I finally made the choice to move here as well. I've written for Hellsing, Pixar's Coco, and PLVSAA (Layton vs. Ace Attorney), as well as others.
You can find my fan works at Ao3 (Just look for the sheep!) https://archiveofourown.org/users/Jubalii/pseuds/Jubalii
On the note of fake followers, before I blocked gab.com on our https://m.abunchtell.com instance I noticed very bot-like behavior from seemingly real accounts on that instance -- very reminiscent of birdsite bots.
Definitely worth thinking about how we guard against misinformation and astroturfing in the #fediverse as this gets more prevalent. Domain blocks alone probably won't be enough -- the classic social media features we include or leave out matter, too.
Some good ActivityPub Conf 2019 news: we got exactly the right number of submissions (all excellent!) to be able to fit all of them in and still do an unconference on Sunday. I'm extremely excited about this lineup!
We'll be making the actual schedule publicly available next week.
There are only a few slots left to register as an attendee btw! If you'd like to come, don't delay! https://dustycloud.org/blog/activitypub-conf-2019/
@cj Hey CJ! Hope all is well.
We're looking to build a new AP application from scratch (details here: https://phabricator.write.as/T671) and wanted to do it on the latest go-fed version.
I was curious what the status of `apcore` is -- I know it says under construction, but is it possible to build on yet? Or should we stick with the `activity` pkg?
Know anyone who would like to join #WritingExchange? While public registrations need admin approval, anyone here can invite someone by generating a special invite link from this page:
We're keeping our 1,000-user limit, but we just freed up about 50 spots after clearing out old, unused accounts. So feel free to invite anyone you think would like it here!
Fediverse Conf - Feneas forum
Is anyone in the #fediverse working on some way to follow a dynamic list of accounts? Thinking kind of like lists on Mastodon, except they're publicly shareable / followable.
Maybe I could create an #ActivityPub actor that follows the accounts in the list and automatically boosts / `Announce`s each post?
But it'd be nice to let a list follower follow accounts individually, so they could *start* following people automatically, but could manually unfollow any they didn't want.
I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
Inactive Writing Exchange accounts
As we're up to 995 users here on #WritingExchange, I'm going to make room for new users by removing accounts that are at least two years old and completely unused (i.e. signed up, logged in, never came back).
Yo, frens. What do you want in a Moderator Companion App?
What do you want to be able to do?
nature, words, dogs, software, privacy, music, and the moment.
