  • Mastodon

    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    My main issue with Mastodon is that your identity is tied to whatever instance you signed up with. So if I sign up at example.social I will be [email protected] If the moderators ban me or the instance stops working I am losing all my tweets and followers.

    Ideally you would sign up with your own domain ([email protected]) and point some dns records to whichever instance you want, this way you stay flexible and you own your identity.

    There is a github issue for this that is open for 5 years but not much has been done https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/2668

  • nostr

    a truly censorship-resistant alternative to Twitter that has a chance of working

  • urbit

    An operating function

    I'm amuse to find that https://urbit.org/ is a lot more legit-looking than it used to be. Good for them.

    Is it still based on 'Hoon' and 'Nock' though? Because inventing your own nonsense programming language is antithetical to a serious attempt at building something.

  • matrix-spec-proposals

    Proposals for changes to the matrix specification

    Nice! I love the matrix cerulean demo! So unfortunate that the Cerulean threading PR seems to have been declined by the community. [1]
