I really appreciate that Flipboard's ActivityPub implementation turns on full text search by default. It's the right choice for discoverability and user experience.

Now if only Mastodon would do something more to prompt users to consider enabling full text search for their accounts.

I love it when people yell at me for not including alt-text with my images because they assume I must be the sort of person who neglects to include alt-text. It's so obvious that I'm that sort of person that there's no need to even check and see if it's true, apparently.

I want to start a discussion group here on .

This group will focus on meteorites and meteorite-related topics.

I am not sure if I should just repurpose the hashtag for this group, or make up a new one. Feedback from the public would be useful and encouraged here.

Please boost for coverage in the following relevant groups :

I had a bit more to say about this and my own site is a great place to do it. I love Mastodon but I'm trying to put more on my own site when I think it makes sense. (And we need more people to do that!)

It's time for a hard fork of Mastodon (DRAFT)

https://privacy.thenexus.today/mastodon-hard-fork-draft/

This is a work in progress, so feedback very welcome! And, please check out the poll in the reply

Contents:

  • Intro
  • There's a lot of low-hanging fruit
  • Safety is an especially good area to focus on
  • It's not as easy as it sounds ...
  • But it's not like it defies the laws of physics!
  • What about funding?
  • Make sure there are funded leadership and project roles for Black, Indigenous, Muslim, trans, queer, and disabled people as well as others who have been marginalized in Mastodon's development history
  • Let a thousand forks bloom!
  • Clever conclusion! tbd

As the tbd in that last bullet implies, the conclusion isn't written yet. Like I said it really is a work in progress!

18 Apr: How important is social media in promoting your work?

Extremely important. I self-publish and I need to get the word out - and so far, I have refused to pay for ads.

I talk about my work a lot here on , and I also maintain a Facebook page with thrice-daily posts. I don't have any good stats on how my readers found me, but I feel that I am reaching more people here on Mastodon.

Mastodon already has a few tickets open to show "Followed by ... and n others you follow" when browsing people's profiles, eg: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/19298

I wonder if it would also be useful to show "Blocked by ... and n others you follow". 🤔

Part 6 of "A Guide to Implementing ActivityPub in a Static Site (or Any Website)" is now out.

Sorry about the delay, this is the part that not many people will like, I assume. I try to explain how to implement the inbox, which by nature is dynamic non-static.

Out of morbid curiosity, can users actually follow and interact with accounts?

Or is all the interaction one way only?

For anyone who hates (most, I hope?), you'll be delighted to know that MeidasTouch has turned on their federation and can be followed from Mastodon and other Fediverse apps via @meidastouch

Offer void where prohibited by Admin law

While they have a Mastodon account on mstdn.social (@MeidasTouch), they seemed to have stopped posting with it back in September, sadly.

So I’ve been here a little while and I still poke my head into ig now and then but im not invested anymore.

I’ve noticed a huge difference in my mental health. Huge.

Ive also noticed when I talk to friends on ig or twitter or TikTok it feels a little bit like talking to smokers.

I feel like a scold but I also feel like…you know this is bad for you. Why are you still on there? And worse, why are you getting news there?

Anyone else have this experience?

@Jackiemauro Until several years ago, I used the following things:

  1. ,
  2. ,
  3. ,
  4. ,
  5. Various accounts (, , etc),
  6. Various ,
  7. Lot of feeds,
  8. And may be some other things I do not remember.

Now, I only use a new Mastodon account to share my mental health journey.

I had removed the others. Sometime I still watch Youtube videos with app (no account).

I feel much better!
