why is halcyon proposing that I follow people I'm already following?
@Ronkjeffries @lambadalambda it's the person who makes the group cohere by getting them talking: http://epeus.blogspot.co.uk/2008/07/here-comes-everybody-tummlers-geishas.html
Hey everyone! So the first call of the Social Web Incubator Community Group is at 4PM GMT this Friday, May 5th. I hope you can make it!
This will be a somewhat loose call, going over topics of the group and the state of things.
Call details posted on the blogpost. Quick link to find call time in your timezone: https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/?qm=1&lid=6,0,5037649&h=6&date=2017-5-5&sln=11-12
hang on, do replies not show in the public timeline? Is this a birdism?
@maiyannah I have a service version that turns json into html (and back) too. http://www.unmung.com/jsontoxoxo?url=https://xoxo.zone/api/v1/timelines/public?local=true
@maiyannah I made xoxo to dump it to html. https://github.com/microformats/xoxo/blob/master/xoxolib.php
@sina it's still on github, but not running any more: https://github.com/bradfitz/talk-gluecon-2010/tree/master/demo_server
@xor the real question is "Who is the customer?" http://epeus.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/when-youre-merchandise-not-customer.html
Mastodon, Twitter and publics
Long ago, I wrote about the theory of social sites, with the then-young Twitter as the exemplar. As Mastodon, GnuSocial and other federated sites have caught some attention recently, I thought I'd revisit these theories.
@darius good to see you here. Have you found http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=botsin.space&view=local yet?
