psa "how many boosts can i get" is not an end in itself. it's been an amusing joke for a while but i think the more "virality" oriented social media culture seeps in, the more i see it being said straight-faced. these habits were cultivated to control you and masto is where i think people should be able to detox from it

Fun fact: while you may only have heard of Mastodon recently, it's been around for a while! @Gargron registered the domain 'mastodon.social' in March 2016, and hundreds of people have contributed to its development since then.

Let's take a moment to say thank you to the thousands of people who have contributed to Mastodon's development and community over the last two and a half years! We wouldn't be where we are without you!

RT @FaiMujer@twitter.com: August 22 marks the 44th anniversary of the Anicinabe Park Occupation where the Ojibway Warrior Society & others across the continent, including members of the American Indian Movement, joined the occupation in 1974 to demand better living conditions, education & access to land.

Question for developers:

Given that most implementations have rolled their own rather than using the spec's client-server API, has anyone used or considered GraphQL for that?

I guess one serious post I will make is this: there is a real movement to threaten, endanger, and literally kill journalists for doing their jobs. The tactics (doxing, stalking, calls for doxing and stalking, death threats, lies or misleading statements in order to stir people up) are replicable and are being replicated. This is now part of the job description. It shouldn’t have to be. The only allies we have are members of the public who can discern and call out dishonesty.

"The number of physicians in the United States grew 150% between 1975 and 2010, roughly in keeping with population growth, while the number of healthcare administrators increased 3,200 % for the same time period.

Yes, that's 3,200% in 35 years, a statistic derived by Physicians for a National Health Program using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the United States Census Bureau's Current Population Survey."

The issue tracker can be a carefully moderated space, with a slower, more verbose style of communication, suitable for the much larger and more diverse groups of participants. Meanwhile, the bug tracker, like the code repo itself, can be a place for terse, geeky discussions among a trusted group, as they track day-to-day technical work.

This setup has gone through an evolution.
1.) I have a bad back & sitting at a normal desk for long periods hurts my back, so I sit in an overstuffed chair w/a footstool.
2.) Using a laptop in my lap was bad for my wrists & neck, so now I have a 'desk' with swinging bars for my monitor & keyboard.
3.) I've been using a cheap keyboard but I wore out the control key. So I just got a Kinesis freestyle pro keyboard today. This is split so there's space to put my tablet

this fediverse thing really is the thing I am most excited about in the world right now. the amount of things it has the potential to have a positive impact on is enormous.

> Think cells and organs.
- I've been pushing this comparison since forever, glad to see it's a shared idea. Federation will be to human society what the shif from single cell to multicellular organisms was to life on earth. Each of us is but a cell, but we can get together as organs (ie. Cooperatives) and work to keep the organism alive (ie. To maintain our society).

@aral
I beg to differ. Focusing on "instances of one" is more likely to push people into the arms of Gastodon than to keep them here.

We resist Gastodon by turning instances into cooperatives, places where people are no longer users who need to obey what the "master" says, but peers who have a say and a vote.

Not everyone has the will, time, skills, resources and patience to install and maintain their own instance.

The greatest challenge for Mastodon now that it’s getting mainstream attention is to figure out how to resist “embrace and privatise”.

Tomorrow Google announces Gastodon. What do you do to stop it becoming Gmail?

Suggestions:

1. Push for instances of one

2. In order to make instances of one viable, simplify the complexity of the app itself: the lighter it is, the less dependencies, the easier it is to host. Installation should be no more difficult than sudo apt install mastodon
