WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overview
Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.
I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.
Been on here a while but I guess I’ll do a fresh #introduction :
Hi, I’m Luna!
By day, I’m a graphics programmer in the UK games industry. By night, I’m a demoscener making procedural artworks with code. I’m trans, I love cats (though I don’t have any of my own), and I will always over-commit to the bit - including (but not limited to) buying fonts specifically for making typographically-accurate memes, and building entire websites for a quick gag.
Oh, and here’s some of my art:
I wish society was arranged in a way where it was easier to say "I would like to travel to another place, on foot" and taking like a month to walk from the midwest to like new york or something at a relaxing pace. Without being arrested for publically camping and with any kind of material/social infrastructure that was friendly to people doing such a thing.
Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!
Mir fällt öfter auf, dass etliche User Inhalte von Mastodon auch auf Twitter teilen, vielleicht oft automatisiert. Darunter auch geteilte Posts bzw. Re-Toots und damit Bild- und Videodateien anderer User.
Mir persönlich macht's für mein Gekrakel nichts aus, aber generell gesagt geht das aus meiner Sicht nicht, Leute.
Ihr könnt nicht den Content anderer Personen ungefragt auf ner anderen Plattform posten, selbst wenn der ursprüngliche Account mit angegeben wird. Ist jedenfalls nicht sehr lieb.
haven't shared nice cool little languages in a while.
Fennel is a simple language that is basically scheme syntax targetting lua runtime, so can be embedded many places.
