Big news coming tomorrow regarding the #ActivityPub question/answer server I've been working on..

is blocking users from accessing appleid.apple.com/ which is totally unfair! A simple test is to access appleid.apple.com/ using a user-agent switcher plugin.

@MatejLach @cj The go-fed/activity library is about 40,000 lines of Go code that codegens about 500,00 lines of Go code.

@MatejLach @cj Wouldn't doing it manually result in several 100,000 lines of Go code? That's a lot of code to maintain.

@MatejLach I was thinking of using the go-fed library written by @cj. How are you implementing it in go?

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 I would love to see an AP talk from you regardless of whether it gets accepted to FOSDEM.

@cj @dansup @kaniini @lain @Gargron @matt @nightpool @cwebber Probably not this year. I'm close to graduating school, and I've been sucked into writing a compiler recently which has been eating up all my time. But thanks for the invite. I do hope we get to meet everyone working on AP someday.

@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.

Today I will be joining my peers in walking out of the office. I want to make sure Andy Rubin level executives know that their corporate power doesn't shield them from the consequences of being a shitty person.

@cj I wouldn't call it a distraction if it makes it makes it easier for contributors to understand the codebase.

Following some inspiration from @sir I've implemented CSS only expandable comments for my WIP #activitypub reddit alternative.

@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.

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.

Today is international #DayAgainstDRM: defectivebydesign.org/dayagain

Use the day and read on to inform yourself & others about DRM!
