Prompted by Star Wars, but no spoilers: does it bug anyone else that the rebellion's ideology is only told implicitly, rather than articulated?

Like, what is the rebellion *for*? I think you could argue for localized governance, diversity & pluralism, the abolishment of slavery, and maybe ecological preservation--but these principles are rarely spoken. Instead we get, like... "hope" and "together-ness".

The Mastodon documentation has been rewritten by @trwnh. It now has a search function and a different design as it's now hosted on GitBooks. Take a look!

If after looking you think a topic worth writing about is missing, tell me what it is!

We're a mere $40/month away from hitting the $500/month goal on my Patreon! (That's 92%! Holy cow!)

streaming media was a mistake.

is activitypub a drop-in solution for twitter? No, there are absolutely going to be huge challenges trying to use it at twitter's scale. but it's the only thing close, and it's definitely the most solid platform to start iterating on.

As we've learned over the years, open standards aren't a panacea, and they need strong process to avoid being co-opted and distorted by corporate interests, but when it does work, it works *really well*
