The comeback of the Fediverse and the Old Web

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • neocities - the web site. The entire thing. Yep, we're completely open source.

    Neocities: they try to bring back the atmosphere or our old Geocities (believe me, they achieved that goal).

  • Mastodon

    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    These past weeks have been pretty interesting to me, leaving the Birdsite aside. I started using Mastodon again, and through it I discovered how some people are devoting their time & energy to resucitate some buried ideas from the old Web, or Yesterweb.

    I have many less followers on Mastodon than in the Birdsite (40 vs 341), yet my activity has generated many more interactions than there. Not only that, among the users who decided to interact with me I counted: a co-discoverer of the Laniakea supercluster, one of the lead developers behind F#, the author of many important books on Java & JVM, plus many others. I'm literally a nobody, but this time there was no algorithm relying on relevance and engament metrics to decide what to present to each one of us.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
