@mayel thats a fine a approach.
It does have a repercussion on the sys admin level required to operate .
As in, microservice interdendency is harder to manage than say a monolith application or a packaged stack.
Historically that raises the bar of entry of self hosting.
For those capable it makes the going from 2-3 use ap serice to 10 an more easier tho.
My ideal is an open-ended, highly configurable design with an interesting set of defaults and a robust user community contributing templates or otherwise documenting configuration recipes. This comes from a game design space informed by *nix design principles, which is to provide simple primitives from which people can composite emergent behaviors
I wish fediverse clients had a working petname based contact list type system so I could write down notes about people and give them my own names so I can actually contextually remember who they are
Especially a big problem after APConf, where now I just followed a bunch of people I really cared about the conversations of, and will have a hard time mentally mapping them to their online identities :(
Takeaways from the #activitypubconf
1. SharedInbox is dead (look out for MultiBox and OcapsPub)
2. Strong interest to explore Object Capabilities as a way to secure social introductions, power delegation and transitivity, and to develop effective cooperation tools that prevent abuse in the #Fediverse
> built-in expiration date
okay, what the fuck. Chromebooks are cheap laptops not cheese, they can't EXPIRE. This is asshole design at its finest.
Some Chromebooks mistakenly declared themselves end-of-life last week
When your Chromebook or Chromebox approaches its built-in expiration date, it will warn you that it's time to go buy a new device entirely. Not long after that, it will refuse to apply any further security or feature updates. In addition to leaving users vulnerable to unpatched security exploits, this means that constantly evolving services such as Gmail will eventually stop working entirely.
I'm going to be updating my list of creative Fediverse instances soon, so I'm putting out the call!

If you know of any Fediverse instances with a focus on any creative industries, hobbies, genres, etc., please reply here and let me know!
Not just Mastodon, either. If it's part of the Fediverse I want to know about it!
@nolan I wrote this resource to point those running open communities towards when they make discordant/dissonant decision like adopting Slack, Discord, or a variety of lesser proprietary collaboration tools towards: https://davelane.nz/why-slack-better-and-why-open-communities-shouldnt-use-it Perhaps it'd be useful for you?
Despite a persistent legend, the Chromium web browser is strongly tight with many Google services, and thus is *NOT* ungoogled.
In /e/OS we are using a fully ungoogled Chromium web browser.
On Linux, Mac and Windows, you can use "ungoogled- chromium":
