I've just released a simple #ActivityPub debugging tool. It's hosted on Glitch so you don't have to worry about spinning up servers or SSL certs etc. You clone your own copy of the project, set it up, and you can create ActivityPub accounts that can send any raw JSON payload you specify to its followers. I use it for testing new and novel ActivityPub objects, and to test compatibility with messages sent from remote servers without needing to create an account on them.

I've noticed that the more time I spend on the internet, the more I only read things that were written, like, two weeks ago at most. It feels almost impossible to *find* anything older than that, let alone read it.

How did the internet, a vast medium with almost unlimited storage capacity, become the place where people only read or watch things created in the extremely recent past?

I'm going down to the Port of Seattle Offices at noon to comment in opposition to facial recognition at SeaTac. Anyone else from the fedi planning on being there?
