Hey! If you're new and reading this, remember that you don't need to bring your old behaviors from birdsite and fb to here.

We enjoy genuine conversation, because we can fit in all the words, finish our train of thoughts.

Get to know your community, and how they behave. See if you find something new and novel.

Ooo. This maybe what is needed to build that. The properties described in the background are perfect for storing encrypted federated social network posts.

For instance, if I wanted to run a private Mastodon instance for friends, I could read their PMs. Basically I want a social network where friends exchange keys and posts are encrypted between us. Surely this isn't a new idea.

Is there a social network that encrypts posts so that only the people in your network can read them. i.e. not even the admins of the server can read them.

Settled on this metric which boils down to:

L(G) = Number of predicate conditions + Number of nested blocks + 1

I settled on this metric over others because it proves my point ;)

How you doing? I'm reading papers on software complexity metrics to prove that our in house ad-hoc style guide is bunk.

Greetings to everyone currently coming to mastodon from facebook! ::waves::

I've decided to exit Facebook and get serious about Platform Cooperativism. I'm excited to see how this works.
