@jtr Yup, and that's just part of the issue with dating apps. Infinite business growth and helping their users find actual fulfilling relationships don't go too well together, which of course leads to many of these apps doing everything to squeeze as much money as possible out of them without regard for their well being.

Some mind-spewing about dating apps and the kind of information companies (or actually one company) has over your information:

self-hosted Wordpress creepy 

@bookandswordblog ew what part of self-hosted don't they understand? Installing some kind of backdoor code to duplicate user images without their consent, wtf? Even on a managed hosting solution that would be highly problematic and unnecessary at best.

self-hosted Wordpress creepy 

Ok this is creepy: when I upload an image to my self-hosted (not-Automattic) Wordpress site it also appears on a random third-party domain dwaves.de/2022/06/06/so-wordpr I have verified this with i2.wp.com/bookandsword.com/wp- #wordpress #cms #stateOfTheWeb #privacy

I have now blocked all known domains that Meta uses. I also blocked Google Analytics (maybe not everything, only 2 lines).

Blocked them via the hosts file. Feels good 😌

Should libraries run search engines? It seems that the original point of a library was to organize human knowledge and culture for the public benefit. The benefit has been great, but libraries aren't the main tool for finding information now. Search engines are. The notion that a library needs to be for books only is an arbitrary limitation. This oversight allowed corporations to move into that traditionally non-profit role, and I'm not convinced they've done a particularly good job.

@noeldemartin @VincentTunru @kytta An idea would be to have an activity type or flag to indicate that a post contains a recipe. On the recieving side it can then be parsed and added to your recipe book. You might edit it and repost. If it has the same name then it will overwrite the recipe in your followers books.

Things like this would be more interesting because they are not just a silo of recipies, and spread in a more anarcho manner.

A hundred replies later, here’s what I gathered:

— people seem to like the idea :D
— there are other projects with similar idea of making recipes publishing more communal
— there are quite a few recipe formats: Schema.org, FatHub, RecipeML, h-recipe, Cooklang
— semantic markup is a must
— discoverability will be tricky
— Nextcloud has a cookbook app; it is unclear how it works with (federated) Nextcloud Social
— name ideas: Recipedia, Cookwyrm :blobcatgoogly2:

I’m quite hyped to say the least

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!

I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!

Being annoying, rude, or spewing conspiracy theories about a project is not a good way to promote your tools.
