Only 1 post on pixelfed.social has disabled comments, the test post I made.

Only 6% of users hide their follower counts.

These privacy and safety features may not be for everyone, that doesn't discourage me from adding more.

Pixelfed aims to be safer than Instagram.

I had semi impromptu meeting with Portland's Smart City Open Data Director and he is so cool! They are taking a privacy forward approach to the smart city approach, very inspiring.

Introducing Indie Web Server (video)

ar.al/2019/03/14/introducing-i

I just recorded a short video demonstrating just how simple and seamless Indie Web Server really is.

Running a secure development web server is one command. Running a secure production web server is… umm… still one command.

Enjoy! 🤓

I’m very excited about this – it’s one of the first pieces of the bridge we’re building towards the peer web (it’s on the current web leg of the bridge – that’s where are now.)

Democratising the ability to develop/deploy personal sites is an important step. This is the first of a number of more specialised modules I’m considering releasing as I build the scaffolding of #Hypha. Hypha also will/does use Indie Web Server for its untrusted node (source.ind.ie/hypha/hypha).

The ever-increasing #informationOverload means it is becoming crucial for everyone to be able to save as much time as possible, even on the #desiSeconds scale. #Multiidentity is one of several means of helping everyone to both handle own and filter external contents with maximum #efficiency. This is about #ITstrategy, and the #platforms of the #fediverse and related tools should cater for the needs of various groups of people, not only one use case. For example, we should be able to use this platform in #collaboration efforts regarding improvements to #democracy such as #transparency. Suitable #flexibility in #voting and #moderation are good examples of what such platforms should provide. And in particular #discussion #processes towards collective #decisionMaking is something the world simply is lacking and has never seen efficient and trustworthy #solutions for yet (ever...).

Trying to find an article I think I saw on the a day or two ago about the "myth" of federation and the failure of to decentralize sufficiently (finding that two instances carrying most of the overall activity of the entire network). But now I can't find it. Anyone bookmark it? @Gargron @federationbot

Made a special version of my 'Mastodon 101' video for r/socialmedia on Reddit, after the mods objected to the plugs for Masthead. If you're a Redditor, I'd love an upvote to help reach social media professionals: reddit.com/r/socialmedia/comme
