I guess with the influx of new users to the Fediverse, we're doing introductions now, so here's mine:

I'm a # and # enthusiast and developer. I'm also an # who's trying to create safe spaces for those who are recovering from high-demand control groups.

So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.

Mon conjoint me pose une question dont la réponse m'échappe. Existe-t-il une version française/québécoise du Projet Gutenberg?

mÀj: Bon… j'ai trouvé la version canadienne du projet qui est bien bilingue (anglais/français) et qui a une page principale... intéressante...

je pensais que ta question était plus générique et non pas pour trouver un livre précis

Does anyone know if #PixelFed has an option to expire posts after a pre-defined period of time like #Mastodon and #Friendica do? If so, where would I find it?
No... It's not available yet ... You can Use Stories for such feature

This. Is. Brilliant. And so true.

@tob How do you get the water to the correct temperature? I'm pretty sure my water's too hot.

For some thoughts on what should guide content moderation for a social media platform should look like, The Santa Clara Principles are required reading:

The most important thing to recognize is that there are going to be mistakes. That is why transparency and accountability is at the center of these principles.

I agree that the Santa Clara Principles have a lot to offer tech firms implementing corporate moderation principles. Also, they weren't design with community moderation in mind— it would be difficult for even Wikimedia to implement them.

How are you thinking about these issues in distributed and community-moderated contexts?
Hmm 🤔 you have a more balanced, and less sarcastic tone on mastodon, than on twitter, I wonder why that is ?...

My pending jobs queue is back down to where it was before this whole migration nonsense. That's good, right?

I love how nowadays you can just casually get a little metal slab that'll fit 960 gigabytes in it with no moving parts

Hey friends! is now open for signups 🎉🇨🇦❤️

@andrew and I built it as a hosted-in-Canada, capital-region-focused (but open to all Canadians) instance.

Please boost so folks can find us! 👀

Besides Mastodon, what other cool apps are being built on the #Fediverse and with #ActivityPub?

How about a food delivery service!

Already, @andresmh and @princeton are hard at work on this initiative!

We're not just taking on Twitter, we're taking on DoorDash and UberEats too!
Now that the |Fediverse and Mastodon are a tiny bit more popular, it'd be easier to explain what we're trying to build at @princeton: a federated open-source food delivery platform. 

Like Mastodon meets DoorDash. We're even using ActivityPub.  

The vision: one day each town can run its own instance. Some towns can run multiple instances. Customers will use their preferred mobile client to connect to their nearest/preferred instance. 

Instances can be local coops of restaurants/couriers.
maybe some things doesn't need activity pub after all. Why would a food delivery service need to be connected with social media?
@Dashtop Why does anything need to be connected to social media?
it need not. I think it's okay if there's a branded white label app by a local restaurant consortium for door delivery service.
@Dashtop It's also okay to try new ideas with an open protocol.
