For people working on ActivityPub implementations I just wrapped up a nice chat with the folks of https://homebrewserver.club in Amsterdam (@manetta @rra and others). It was all via document editing and you can read the whole thing starting at line 188 in this document
It's a bit disorganized and I think they are going to digest it into a blog post or similar but for now this may be helpful to people who are puzzling their way through ActivityPub implementation!

Where can I find a list of blocked and silenced instances, and a log of the decision-making processes that resulted in that status?
I stumbled across an impediment to interacting with somebody I legitimately wanted to, and I'd like to know how the process worked.

(That's not the project announcement, we're not there yet. And to be clear, we're not trying to get rich or even make a living on this, just trying to reduce the need for side hustles and increase our own motivations to spend more time working on it...)

Wonambi will be a feature-compatible Mastodon backend in Python/Django, aimed at scaling down as well as up. One deploy target is a free-tier VPS host to run a turn-key instance for a single user or small group.
Two of us have plodded away at it for a few weeks, and at this rate we'll have an MVP version in a month or so. But we're both unemployed ex-corp burnouts.
How far along should we be before making a bigger announcement and setting up a Patreon/KoFi/etc?

My wrists are really sore from doing the first step on 20 gallons yesterday. But I also pressed a gallon to send to my out-of-town family.
This is such a productive year, I'll probably keg 5 gallons, bottle 5, and experiment with freeze/thaw cycles with the rest...
self-care suggestion - news meta Show more
Sometimes self-care means ending habits that society views as healthy, like keeping up with the daily news. Almost none of the national news cycle is relevant to personal life, and punditry about it is candy that feeds anxiety.
#wtfjht (https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com/) is keeping me from the latter, but I want a news org that only reports the big stuff and only after a week+ has passed so the story has developed beyond the scoop.
Save my braintime for shit I can affect.
I want an instance that is strictly #tokipona. I would try to cross-post all of my toots in that language as a learning exercise.
I'm particularly interested in finding people who don't speak English but are learning Toki Pona, to see how well the language works without other common ground.

Right: Pizza half gone before I could grab my camera.
Notes: The mozz came out much more solid. Last time was almond milk; tasted great but too sticky to grate. Soy milk curdles a bit in contact with acid, which made the resulting cheese much more firm. Cheese recipe from "Non Dairy Evolution Cookbook".
Went to "the bins" and among the buried treasured was a copy of Dungeon World. Almost makes up for the dustlung.
searx.me is superior to duckduckgo if only because the page doesn't jump around after loading, causing me to misclick and end up on yelp by mistake...

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
