GOSH I love reading full articles from @write_as in the new single-column view.

The attached screenshot is after clicking through a "read article" link, one of the features of my new Mastodon fork, Hometown. I hope to have documentation and release notes ready to go by the end of the week!

Looks like the linux kernel people finally found something to replace their hardcore love of Google+ after it died, people.kernel.org/. its using @write_as as its backend which is awesomely open and federated with activity pub.

Coming in v0.10: more control over your home page! As the admin of a multi-user instance, you'll be able to:

* Change the default page that non-users land on (e.g. instead of the home page, it could be your About page, or a specific blog)

I'm migrating from Medium to @write_as : you can find it here!

You can also follow it directly via it's ActivityPub profile: @nicolas-constant

I will blog about #Sengi on it, but also write down other thoughts and ideas I might put some efforts on. :)
