At ? Come to Gratte Ciel 2 after lunch and learn how the Social Web is the Next Big Thing. I'll even use the pedestrian bridge next the conference center as the perfect metaphor.

Okay, finished my slides for talk, enough to go to bed. Gentle comments welcome. Had to trim a lot I wanted to include due to time constraints (25 minutes).

This is an invited W3C talk at a web research conference, so I'm hoping to inspire researchers to do cool new projects on top of the Fediverse software and protocols.

Is it correct to say the can gracefully handle ActivtyStreams extensions (passing them through to clients and other servers) but cannot, because of their database schema and protocol designs? Or pleroma can't either, because it's using the same restricted client-server protocol?

@tzviya I just sent you (another) zulip invitation. Did you get it?

Oh oh, here's my real question: What's your best graphic for showing (like on a slide during a talk) how well the is doing?

Anyone poked at how between things like and things like works or might work? Is there any point in following between one kind of server and the other kind? Or do I need to different identities?

@lain I'm giving a talk on the fediverse tomorrow at .... last minute putting together my slides, wondering if you have any key messages you'd like an audience of mostly web-oriented researchers to know (about pleroma, the fediverse, activitypub, the future of the web, the future of humanity, ....)

Lufthansa is inviting to me to checkin for my flights tomorrow from Lyon to Boston. I'm not going, but (a) there's no way to get a refund or anything, and (b) there's not even any way to tell them I'm not going, so they can sell the seats.

(Might be possible if I purchased directly, but I didn't)

At in Lyon. Recording sessions with video of variable quality. Looking for someone who wants to try to clean it up, especially edit together streams from two cameras (before second battery died).

Onion based federation is now working with #pleroma on #freedombone. This means that it's now possible to follow users on "onion only" installs.

This type of federation is quite significant, because it means independence from the DNS and CA systems. It means that even if you don't control your local internet router or don't have money to spend on domain names you can still create a social network. It significantly reduces the complexity barrier to entry for running a home server.

Hey #Mastodon #Fediverse, are there any mobile clients that support both Mastodon and the birdsite? As in, have accounts on both, post to both?

Asking for a friend.


I'm in Lyon for #TheWebConf.

It's a beautiful day and I'm starting out by getting everything I own thoroughly covered in hair at a cat cafe. I think it's gonna be a good week.

I'll be at Researcher Centric Scholarly Communication on Tuesday, the journalism and misinformation track on Wednesday, and the Developer track on Thursday. See you around?

Idle musings 

In case you didn't know, you can use to test out the bleeding-edge version of Pinafore before the official release. This is a good way to see if your bug is already fixed, or to find new bugs if they sneak in! (And they do sometimes. πŸ˜…)

If clients did nice thumbnail rendering of url content, then I should bridge my RT's here, looking fairly reasonable and not violating any rules, I expect. Maybe?

It's been a hard winter for the woods near my house. (And yes, that's snow from this morning, in April)

Since you all keep arguing over whether Masto or Pleroma is better
