Good to see you on here!

Are instance-level block/mute settings federated as well, or at least exposed via API? I keep seeing various instances posting their blocked instances but, can other admins programmatically benefit from this work that other admins are doing?

Dammit, I've left my well-loved bq Cervantes (open source) e-reader on a flight.

Unlikely that I'll get it back or be able to buy another one (it's discontinued).

Any suggestions for a replacement? Don't particularly want machine like a Kindle.

was reasearching activitypub and there are some other cool apps using it, like:

"distbin is a distributed pastebin. i.e. it is a service where anyone can post things on the web, and others can react by posting anywhere else on the web"

most of the ppl reading this msg need to rewrite some of their most important core beliefs before we'll access a new political reality

@June @protean we need more font-ends around different ways of using ActivityPub, and less monolithic platforms

@mayel good question - yes we are both. The logic there is fourfold:

* be part of a larger formation that could coordinate benefits and services we as a smaller coop can't do alone
* more effectively participate in the growing movement needed to insist on ethical tech
* better lend solidarity to workers in other industries

@petar Not sure it's something appropriate to promote on then


I like the idea, but they don't provide verifiable binaries, so difficult to trust unless you're ready to compile...

Do you have radical #education resources for building #community driven #schools? And resources to include local research driven problem assessments? I still dream about a reopen of the Schools of syndicalism, or a Workers Highschool with seasonal topics centered around #food, #work, resistance and going beyond sustainability

@petar is it a co-op? is it ? is it p2p?


There is a lot of talk about co-ops and , and decentralisation, solidarity and user empowerment, and a lot of other stuff...

feature needed:

- Allow users to add a text description to image attachments of toots that have already been posted.

This helps to make an increasing number of toots accessible without altering their chronological order.

Thinking of a dashboard-style interface to facilitate keeping up with the local timeline on several instances at once. Is that interesting?
