Just linked my keybase.io to this account... very nifty that it works but I'm unconvinced keybase is the best way to solve the problems it's trying to solve. Social graph construction/identity are extremely unsolved problem in the fediverse. Dunno know how this gets solved in an elegant way without centralization. Tough to compete with a world where your @ on insta is the end-all-be-all for a digital point of contact. How/when could a fediverse account be given verbally to a new acquaintance?
Staying up for the Perfume Coachella livestream was 110% worth it https://twitter.com/rizzle_d/status/1120234054870155266
Tinyfed has been updated to mastodon v2.8.0 🎉 https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
Been loving Eric Mayson's mini song series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l0lHFyn3xA
DAOKO is great. Glad nakata did a collab with her or else I never woulda seen her stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsl8HS_lVHE
Nakata's Madeon remix was probably one of the slowest burns I've ever had for being into one of his songs. Used to be completely indifferent & thought it ended up a bit awkward but now I think it's just *brilliant* https://youtu.be/jTrlXJQT5Gg
And yeah, just cuz I'm on tinyfed now doesn't mean I'm done spamming about nakata :)
Watching GSL Starcraft live in studio today! Tune in here, matches start in 5min http://www.twitch.tv/gsl
Closest I've seen to what I envision is https://communitywiki.org/trunk which is a really cool similar/related project.
Still such a crying shame the twitter bridge can't work. https://twitter.com/MastodonProject/status/1075606951885762561 - Funny that this is a crystal clear example of why the fediverse is so necessary in the first place
Soon I want to put in real legwork to get critical mass of people on this instance, but I'm not really comfortable doing that with the stock mastodon onboarding experience. Most important, need to build real assistance for new users to find people to follow. Hopefully can build something instance-independent that any instance owner in the fediverse can point new users to.
I know food pictures are in one sense an inane thing to post on a brand new instance, but being able to order a huge healthy meal (made fresh in minutes) for $7 from a touch screen at a 24hr restaurant says so much about how convenient Seoul is. So great for health, economics, time management, etc. Really positively affects your day-to-day
