Big news coming tomorrow regarding the #ActivityPub question/answer server I've been working on..
@cwebber I made these diagrams, can you please tell me if my understanding is correct?
Hello, World! Would you like to see a question and answers platform like Quora/StackExchange with ActivityPub support? And if yes, then how would such a platform be beneficial to you?
@cj In simpler words, you have a two pass codegen?
@cj I would love to see an AP talk from you regardless of whether it gets accepted to FOSDEM.
@mariusor @mbajur @cwebber Thanks for bringing this up! Fetching raw Like/Dislike activities like @cj mentioned is probably the way to go for simple cases. But I do see the usefulness of a custom score property. I'm in favor of this proposal. I would like to add though the fact that some apps may prefer to give a floating point score.
@cj I wouldn't call it a distraction if it makes it makes it easier for contributors to understand the codebase.
@nbering Have a look at Drone.io
@alfred the others are parallel killers
@feoh if that is your intention, then sure. But there's three reasons this is bad.
1. It prevents dual booting.
2. It prevents you from loading distros that cannot afford to pay Microsoft.
3. It puts Microsoft in charge. They can at any time decide to refuse future key signatures.
Currently the Linux Foundation pays Microsoft for signing. If you think about it, that key can be misused to bypass SecureBoot. This is just a game by Microsoft to make more money.
@feoh its better turned off. You want UEFI, not secure boot.
Digital Restrictions Management (#DRM) is any technology that is built into an electronic product or service with the aim of limiting its range of uses.
Use the day and read on to inform yourself & others about DRM!
