@JupiterRowland @fediverse - https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks is a place where people discuss various ActivityPub implementations and potential improvements - primarily from a technological perspective (how the software is written), not as much from a cultural perspective (how users use the software), so it doesn't directly answer your question, but it might still be helpful in some cases

@ChasingEnigma DeviantArt - I like separation between art, literature, and regular status updates, and the ability to group posts in your inbox into folders by who posted them. Or, more realistically, any of the various furry sites that work on a similar model and have less potential for cultural conflict.

Could We Build a Decentralised Social Platform Rooted in Place? (carlnewton.github.io)

Over the past year or so I’ve been playing with the idea of a decentralised social platform based on your location. By putting physical location at the centre of the experience, such a platform could be used to bring communities together and provide a source of local information when travelling. Please let me know what you...

@carlnewton one advantage to a system like this, is that you don't need it to catch on in a bunch of different communities for it to work. It can catch on even in one place, and it will already be useful for the people there.

@prefetcher Very nice! I might switch my single-user server to something like this someday - it'd be nice to have something I know how to make changes to. Also looks like the database and cache dependencies all run through ASP.NET Core stuff so they could be replaced (although I know from experience that just because you're using Cosmos DB thru EF Core doesn't mean you can write your schema the same way!)

@jaagruk microblog.pub has RSS feeds. you do need to self-host it though. That's what I'm running on this account if you want to see an example

The world of social media is changing, and we are embracing this new social web, the Fediverse. Today, we started to federate our platform with a test of 25 partners. You can read more about that on @mike's post here:

@Flipboard I'm having issues following flipboard.com accounts from this server microblog.lakora.us. Seems to be an HTTP signature problem? flipboard.com returns a 500 on all signed requests. I didn't write this software myself (just hosting the server) so I'm not sure how to fix it.

@ZeroCool Kind of reminds me of how music streaming services give you playlists that other people put together. Neat idea

@haui_lemmy I've implemented the "log in with Microsoft", "log in with Google", etc buttons in ASP.NET Core + Identity before - most of them just use OAuth2, which works pretty much the same way no matter what provider you're using.

OpenID Connect is an authorization layer built on top of OAuth2, so it could give you information about the user beyond just "they logged in and here's an access token". Maybe an OpenID Connect provider would be helpful in this use case - it seems to be designed to solve a problem much like this.

@ALostInquirer I think part of it is the "branding" of Mastodon - if everyone someone follows uses a Mastodon server, they might just think of "Mastodon" as the social network they want to join, and never really consider that other people on the network might be using something like Firefish or Pixelfed or microblog.pub. After all, most Mastodon servers' web UIs look pretty much the same and the default Mastodon name and graphics are often pretty prominent.

I don't think this is usually an issue, but there are some Mastodon instances out there whose names are `mastodon.[something] and I think that can mislead people into thinking that's the one they "should" join just because it seems "official".

@Crul @thegiddystitcher neat, I never realized that micro.blog could federate itself in addition to crossposting to mastodon.

I built a very normal gaming PC. Next step, maybe building the "dISAppointment" ISA dark magic to get the front panel working!

@ActionRetro I have that same USB front panel on my 2004 Dell Dimension. Something about USB-C on a computer old enough to be a legal adult is really funny to me

@Reva I've got a few ways to find fics with all-OC casts, which usually fit the bill (Trek BBS forum; fanfiction.net's StarTrek: Other section; looking at AO3's Star Trek tag and then excluding each individual show). Problem is, I'm usually more interested in hearing people talk about their stories / ideas / etc than actually reading them, and I don't know where that sort of thing happens, if at all.

@StillPaisleyCat Although I wish some of Pike's dialogue had been fleshed out a bit to make him feel like less of a generic foil for M'Benga (especially in their scene near the end), I do really like that they had the lead character of the show be the one who doesn't get it, and in a way that's in keeping with his characterization (it ties in particularly well with last season's alternate-timeline Romulan episode, I think).

@daystrominstitute What can we know (or at least guess) about Tellarite culture and behavior from Jankom Pog?

This is going to be pretty open-ended, but I'm curious: given that Jankom is the only Tellarite main cast member of any Star Trek series, what might his personality, behavior, relationships (etc.) tell us about Tellarites as a whole, or their relationships with other species within or outside the Federation? Obviously, it's not easy to know much from Jankom in particular (given that he's a kid and grew up among pre-Federation Tellarites), but thematically, I think it would be nice if one could draw some lines (even if it's wild speculation) between his his role in the team, and the fact that the Tellarites we see in ENT not only help found the Federation, but never leave it, even after the Burn (IMO, one of the most fascinating bits of worldbuilding that's ever been dropped in an off-screen monologue).

@ericjmorey I really like F# - it's not always a better choice than C#, but when it is, you can make really concise, readable code and then add that in a library to a C# or VB app. (List comprehensions, and the immutable list type itself, are awfully nice)
