When self-hosting ActivityPub based services would it be possible to have users identities at the main domain (@firstname.lastname@example.org) but have different ActivityPub based platforms used as a front-end for that identity?
So the user could log on at mastodon.example.com, pixelfed.example.com, friendica.example.com, etc, depending on what platform they preferred. But all their posts, followers, following, dms, etc, would follow them to whatever platform they chose.
This was the idea of ActivityPub.
You have a Client-to-Server and a Server-to-Server portion.
Different diverse Clients can speak to your 1 server!
It would be wonderful.
See the specifications
But unfortunately mastodon does not support the Client-to-Server part and so they have their own “API” for the server.
And so, while upcoming projects will support it, the situation is as bad as it is …
It's interesting to me that the world has never truly seen socialism. Things we've called socialism but aren't, include: dictatorships where the government owns the means of production and capitalism with social safety nets.
We have yet to see a country actually try socialism where the _workers_ own the means of production. Italy has probably come the closest to this.
Little miracle: I started a new job last week and on my third day I lost the MiFi they gave me. My husband and I searched high and low all week and could not find it. Finally I realized we were going to need some divine intervention so I prayed. I searched my bag for the fiftieth time but it still wasn't there. I then let him lead me to a cabinet, rarely used, on my desk and there it was.
Started using Waistline from F-Droid and so far I'm really liking it. My only complaint is that you can only log body weight in kg not lbs but then I'm using a different app to log my weight anyway.
Dogs, cats and other carnivores can actually taste the flavor of water. Unlike humans, these animals have taste receptors specifically for water (and meat too!)

- the water stopped coming and things are drying out
- it was their washing machine, not dishwasher
- you haven't lived until you've seen one of those flush-mounted boob lights spurting brown water out of its nipple
Actually... I take it back. I don't care if it's open source. What I care is that it's private. No trackers or other bullshit.
