#Federation (also known as #Decentralisation) is when, instead of one big site, you have lots of smaller independent sites that talk to each other.

Here's a short article about why federated services are a good idea, and how all of us use them all the time (even if we don't realise it):

The idea of federated social media like Mastodon, Diaspora, PeerTube etc is to give users more control over their social network and personal data.

Hey, beauties. I’m back and catching up on my local timeline to say hello to all the new systems joining us and all the folks returning from hiatus.

If you’re having a hard time this season, I suggest checking out BoosterBuddy, an app developed by Vancouver Coastal Health. A small mammal of your choice helps you earn coins by practicing DBT skills. We’re having a rough time despite being away from relatives and are here to help out should anyone need to chat; contact info is pinned.

Bless 🍵

To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!

Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:

Control Your Platform.

Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.

They all go away. Every one of them.

Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.

Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

more 1980s Taiwanese/Chinese TV Show more

I had this weird deja vu and remembered watching, as a little kid in... I think 1989, with my family while we were in Taiwan for a few months (dad was working a complex job and brought the whole family over).. this, I guess historical drama/comedy show. We even taped it I think.

All I can remember is that they dressed up in some kind of period costume, and *vaguely* the pronounciation of the name of the series from the title cards after every commercial break.

I can't find it now, of course.

For those annoyed by all the blind twitter crossposts, you can go to your Preferences in mastodon and type 'From Twitter' into a Filter here to make them stop

"Flip halfway through cooking."

*eyes all the individual things to flip... switches oven to broil, moves the rack to the top*

Nailed it.
