Local control is great for solving day-to-day problems and delivering services close to the people that needed them. Creating a small divisions of people so that local government can restrict them and criminalize their choices is not it.
@cleverdevil The courts are not (nor is anyone else I'm aware of) saying "leave human rights to the states." They're trying to figure out what are the unenumerated rights protected by the constitution. But there are reports of people voting with their feet — in both directions.
@cleverdevil That would be great! Not sure it fits with the current vision for NNW but I think it could be really interesting. Also in some ways similar to early versions of NNW that could post to blogs.
@manton this came up because I am changing up how I consume both feeds and Micro.blog. I have noticed that reading Micro.blog feeds in NNW and Reeder isn’t ideal, in part because of how the feeds are formatted. This could be fixed on the reader side, but it might be a cool feature to have a specialized timeline feed that is tailored specifically to consumption in a feed reader.
@cleverdevil Gotcha. By the way, are you subscribing to individual blog feeds, or the timeline feeds like /feeds/username.xml that include posts from many users? It would be interesting to experiment with specialized versions of those with reply links, etc.
@manton I am subscribing to my timeline – micro.blog/feeds/cle... Yes, a specialized feed would be really interesting, IMO. Some ideas: Customizable links for reply/bookmark/like, etc. I would likely use the Shortcuts URL scheme to make this really a great experience. Tweaks to titles/content/author to make the feed easier to consume in readers. For reference, this is what my timeline looks like in Reeder: cleverdevil.io/s/Oa7G45F... Even better would be integration with NNW, of course. I am still searching for a native macOS experience to replace my use of Together.
@cleverdevil I entirely read M.b in Reeder having subscribed to my timeline in Feedbin. I don't really run into any trouble except the use of the canonical link versus M.b. link results in having to do a dance if I do want to reply. So I do love the idea of having the timeline feed including the cannonical link, the link to the post on M.b, (and possibly bookmark... that's not a feature I use personally).
I discovered RSSHub this weekend. Great little open source web service that is easy to self-host, and lets you get RSS feeds for all sorts of services that don’t provide them natively. https://docs.rsshub.app/en/
@kimberlyhirsh I agree, it took a very "Breaking Bad" turn in the latter part of the last season, but I think the pivot is important. The thing that makes Barry so compelling for me is the incredible balance of humor with the darkness of Barry's life.
While we'll never be able to recreate and recapture precisely what Twitter is (was?), I do think that the best option for most people looking for community, a great place to post and read content, ease of use, and appropriate moderation, check out Micro.blog.
Hello, micro.blog friends! I needed to update microgram and micromemories for technical reasons (moving from Python 3.6 to Python 3.9 runtimes on AWS Lambda because of deprecation). Let me know if you have issues!
@pratik people will need to check their sites. I made the changes after some level of testing, but there are a lot of sites using the plugin and I can't check them all 😃 If you (or anyone else!) sees an issue, definitely let me know, and I'll do my best to resolve them quickly.
Had a scary power surge in the house last night that blew several surge protectors. One of the SPs blew so violently that it flew across the room and was smoking. Change your surge protectors every two years! Get a nice UPS or three!
