The progress I’ve been making with projects like https://lwa.black.af and https://fortress.black.af are giving me more hope in seeing what I’d like to for the IndieWeb. I really want to build stuff that I can gladly show to friends and help them join as well. That’s part of the reason why I joined Glitch, in a way, the company’s attempting to bring back `view source` to the Web. I want to help bring back the actual social nature of it as well.
That’s a ramble, though… https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/7133d714-4cd9-40b0-bd41-71050ae4d9f0

Federation is not finished yet of course, and you can't do much except post things, comment on them and like or dislike them.
This is a bit underwhelming for almost two years of work, but a lot of things have happened under the hood, so it's not all wasted time.
If you are interested in playing with its very basic features give it a spin at:
Fat cowboys with big trucks, gun racks, horse haulers and 3000 sqft houses surrounded by barbed wire fences don't understand #ecology.
They call themselves "ranchers" or "farmers", but they are delusional.
Our lands were made for Bison, not cattle.
"He found out by fencing off small patches of land along the bison migration route. By comparing the plants within and beyond the fences, the team learned that bison graze so intensely that they freeze plants in early spring for weeks at a time, preventing them from maturing and forcing them to continuously produce young shoots. Other North American mammals like mule deer can’t do this, because they travel in small-enough groups that plants can still outgrow the effects of their grazing. Bison, however, gather in the thousands. By moving in synchrony, they don’t have to surf the green wave. Uniquely, they can also create it.
Their actions change the landscape. In areas where bison graze, plants contain 50 to 90 percent more nutrients by the end of the summer. This not only provides extra nourishment for other grazers, but prolongs the growing season of the plants themselves. And by trimming back the plant cover in one year, bison allow more sunlight to fall on the next year’s greenery, accelerating its growth. When Geremia’s team looked at parts of Yellowstone where bison numbers have fluctuated, it found that the green wave grew in intensity and crested over a longer period as the herds grew larger. The bison engineer and intensify the spring. And astonishingly, they had a stronger influence on the timing of plant growth than weather and other environmental variables. They’re equivalent to a force of nature."
