"The Seoul Bitcoin Meetup (..) urging (..) to rescind support for the controversial #SegWit2x #hardfork that is scheduled for mid-November."

"criticizing (..) the SegWit2x #Bitcoin scaling proposal despite significant opposition from certain sectors in the community, including the Bitcoin Core developers."

"If a select group of CEOs and investors, no matter how benevolent their intentions, can unilaterally make decisions about the consensus rules without public comment and force these changes upon the network regardless of overall consensus, then Bitcoin will have lost the properties that make it valuable in the first place."

Today I was reminded that you really have to take people on the path too #FLOSS, #coops, #commons, #federation, #decentralization, #community, #encryption, #UBI or whatever you think makes the world better for everyone.

How did you get to where you are now? Where did you start?

@AndStatus -

The last release, #Mastodon 1.6, now supports the #ActivityPub W3C standard that replaces the old, limited #OStatus standard.

Among other effects, this means that as more and more Mastodon #instances update to v.1.6.x, the cross-instance visibility of toots, full timelines and related user account #metadata / #statistics will change significantly for the better.

This is quite a #milestone for the #fediverse.

Kudos to @Gargron , @cwebber and the others contributing through #W3C and elsewhere.

"SOCIAL WEB INCUBATOR COMMUNITY GROUP" (#W3C)

w3.org/community/socialcg/

"The purpose of the Social Web Incubator Community Group is to continue and extend the development of vocabularies, formats and protocols to support the distributed / federated social web, as well as related technologies (such as anti-abuse and anti-spam techniques suitable for an open web). This group continues the work of the W3C Social Web Working Group. As proposals gain support and become more stable and mature, they will be considered for migration to a W3C Working Group where they can be put on the Recommendation track with appropriate status and Intellectual Property (IP) considerations."

@yvolk,
@citizenphnix

Yes, if the only concern is to get copies of the data, but from an #ITstrategy #perspective, "cloning" vs. #forking poses a #dilemma:

Developers are inspired by the excitement of #innovation.

Would a "clone variant" get enough traction and #developerinterest to ensure that future updates will get the necessary #maintenance and #qualityControl for you to continue relying on the clone?

If at a later stage, the "clone version" is not being maintained sufficiently anymore as is typical for many #openSource projects (the INTENTION to maintain may still be there, but suddenly the project halts for many months pending available volunteer developer time even just to fix a small showstopper bug...), then you are stuck with all your recent data in a useless variant which most likely is impossible to get back into the original version / #community later, should you want to switch back...

Making #mastodon even more #fun:

- use #hashtags fot toots you'll like to have sorted in themes for fediverse wide discovery and engagment
- welcome newcomers joining in through #introduction
- follow up hashtags and engage
- having specific hashtags used by the mastodon #community to have wider discourse about things like #communityCulture #mastodonPR #mastodonDev
then conversations are less exclusive and it's easier to sychronize with others

can this go to hall of #greatIdeasforMastodon?
