Can't find anyone talking about the #linuxrocks instance, which was pretty near 1000 users. It's been down over 24 hours. Domain evidently expired. Current DNS info shows Noah Chelliah as potential new owner (Ask Noah guy?) - no idea what all this means. Just can't believe it isn't being discussed on Masto...

My favorite song title, “Disgraceful Bossanova with Lemurs”

The music isn't too bad. It sort of wanders around noisily and vaguely resembles getting some weird atonal composer to do the music for Loony Tunes.

(To the extent that William Lava wasn't already some weird atonal composer.)

what if someone made a mastodon instance that was actually glitchy in different ways at different times, like you fave someone's toot and it deletes THEIR TOOT, or you toot something and instead of posting it, it changes your name to it, or you click log off and it just won't

So a while ago @uranther talked about air-dropped meshnet nodes. The idea is that in areas devastated by a natural disaster or is under region-wide censorship, these can be dropped (or just thrown over), link up to each other, and provide a bridge to the outside world

This is technically possible now by using some "travel router" models

For example: The GL-MT300N comes with OpenWrt, is cheap, is very light, and can run on solar+battery

It could work as a nice base for such a mesh node

This underlying problem needs to become a priority. Either pressuring #github to go free software or getting free software to go elsewhere.

Github becoming synonymous with open source just muddies free software waters more.

Free Software needs free tools.

Can’t stop thinking about how ActivityPub was designed to also make a “Facebook-like” experience.

What would it mean to build that, in practice? What would federated Facebook need to be successful?

yes, distributed reddit-like services are one of the reasons why we plan to implement Dislike in pleroma. but it won't be exposed in any of the mastodon/gnu-social like FEs.
