Man this looks really cool. Am excite. https://www.blinklight.io/blog/2017-03-31/
Troy Hunt's little narrative tracking down a scam VPN provider has some interesting bits to it.
I like the bit where their street address is conterminous with a Pho joint.
is the mastodon icon a play on "timeline goes sideways" because holy shit https://mastodon.social/media/BOparaJcut5wDPFvlBM
It's not fancy, but for now, if it becomes the norm, its absence can then serve as a signal that you've moved. Link to where in your bio, and then followers know where to go look for you. Would be neat to just scan down my Follows list and see who I'm missing by the lack of checkmarks.
In the future I hope we can make lists follow users around (This will take a lot of work to architect right within the federation model, but the federation model is worth the work.)
@KindlyFire one more Q for you tonight -- what's the technical reason people from Mastodon|social, when I click their profiles, I don't see their post history or follows/followers? (except, seemingly, maybe I see things that happened after I followed them or something?)
Android client status: 11t seems to be completely brokedick, and Mastodroid and Tusky both dislike maly.io lol not sure why, cc @KindlyFire
