VI (over Nederlandse TV prut, in NL)
Einde VI. Vreselijk programma, sowieso. Alleen maar stupide gelul. Maar dan deze week: dat vunzige verhaal, gebracht als verdediging voor een verdachte van verkrachting, de suggestie dat elke man zich weleens zo heeft misdragen. En dan de reactie van al die mannen daar, dat iedereen maar meelacht, het wegwuift als misplaatste grap.
Nice to illustrate ActivityPub: you can subscribe to Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon and see the photos posted there in your home feed, and even respond which the owner sees as comments in Pixelfed.
"Instead of migrating to another corporate platform, we should think about building interoperable and noncommercial online communities similar to the resilient resources that have worked for decades."
Elon Musk is buying Twitter, Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post, and Mark Zuckerburg controls Facebook and Instagram. Despite everything they tell you, capitalists are killing free speech.

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!
So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.
This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.
Oh look, another software anarchist, how original.
I'm part of a small software consultancy co-op based in Copenhagen. I wish I didn't have to toil under capitalism, but here we are.
I'm trying out the #fediverse experience to see if I can find more of a sense of community than the very Personal Brand focused Dunking of Twitter.

New users on idf.social:
Welcome to the Fediverse!
Once you get the hang of it, please consider writing an #introductions toot and pin that to your profile.
I recommend @laura 's intro to Mastodon (link below), and tech savvy ppl may even like to glance over the ActivityPub W3C standard to grasp the full power. I like Pixelfed as another ActivityPub service, and there are more!

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
