why is halcyon proposing that I follow people I'm already following?
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?
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.

hi Oulipals who just found this spot: don't post homographic symbols to avoid our constraints. I'm at work and busy; going through flags and discarding toots is not part of my day job, sadly
also, glad you found us! ♥️
Updated my viewer to hide NSFW media and to crosslink federated feeds http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=xoxo.zone&view=federated
based on seeing my son baffled by the instance choces
I made an instance previewer, so you can see the local/federated feeds of an instance without signing up: http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=xoxo.zone&view=federated
For the record, you can disable boost confirmation dialogs under preferences.
