It could even work with just changing or extending the JRD format, so that one can have different profiles, inboxes, etc. based on object type. Servers would still have to support non-internal accounts/addresses of course.

... this would actually also solve the biggest issue with moving servers on the fediverse, which is that your user address is tied to one, and only one, instance.

I'm wondering if we can create some kind of proxy ActivityPub server, which would hold one account a.k.a. user address a.k.a. Webfinger JRD, but then delegate to different AP-enabled servers based on the object type. And have the various servers understand this and be compatible with it.

Meaning you could use your one address, for me personally e.g. sebastian@kip.pe, and then delegate microblog posts to Mastodon, photos to Pixelfed, Videos to PeerTube, etc.

Something not mentioned in this post that I'm very interested in, is using ActivityPub to connect different Ghost instances together - just like Mastodon. If anyone is interested in chatting about this, I'd love some advice.

Sometimes the best self care is doing that hard thing you've been putting off.

If you use the Instagram app, what features are must-haves for a replacement? What doesn't work about the Instagram app that I can address?

Students, let me repeat an important advice: DO BACKUPS!


Also, you paid extra for the "faster and better" delivery company, of course.

Receiving mail in Germany in 2018: still a total nightmare.

TFW you're waiting for a big-ass box, and the delivery driver doesn't even bother ringing the bell, i.e. doing their job of delivering the package, and then you have to somehow fetch that big-ass package from some post office, but without a car, because you don't have a drivers license, which is why you used mail order in the first place.

Imagine if people introduced themselves like Web browsers do

Hi, I'm Michelle, actually I'm Angela, I resemble George but not really. As I was saying, I'm Christine, and also Sam.

does somebody here know someone who knows someone from Bishkek?

LOL, I just learned that cycling no-hands is forbidden by law and theoretically carries a fine of 5 EUR in Germany.

The flag-waving on Sunday might become a bit confusing, color-wise:

The great thing about being a developer using an open-source app is that you can treat complaints you have with the app as an opportunity to help improve it.
