For the record, GNU Social -> Pleroma migration consists of both a set of Python data conversion scripts, and a set of changes made to Pleroma. I have only made the Python scripts publicly available, but they are NOT READY FOR PRODUCTION! Numerous changes were made when we went live, that have not been pushed to the public repository.

This is in addition to the problems it is causing other Pleroma servers, which the Pleroma devs are working to remediate.

In short NOTHING IS READY FOR RELEASE YET. I'll make a note when that changes.

From #Reddit #Bitcoin: Today marks the day, The Bitcoin protocol has been running for 10 years. In just a decade, Bitcoin has become the most secure and robust transaction settlement network in the digital age, allowing for truly borderless and uncensorable value transfer. Happy Birthday, Bitcoin! reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/ #Bitcoin

2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.

@Gargron /poll Did you read my article? a) Yes b) No

Now just extend the Mastodon client to parse the /poll Toot Format and allow people to respond and tally up the results.

Simples ;P

PS. Would love to chat about a protocol for adding semantics to toots when you get a moment. Would be amazing to be able to extend the fediverse organically at the message level and enable clients to support the formats they want without having every protocol extension go into ActivityPub.

Currently the federated web holds 35 projects with 9 different protocols (source: the-federation.info) all trying to connect and communicate with each other. But does that actually work?

How apps on Android share data with Facebook...

At least 61 % of apps automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment people open the app, whether they have a Facebook account or not, or whether they are logged into Facebook or not.
