Still more interested in making a single-person lightweight fediverse server than in actually using social media in any way, tbh

Oh right this thing still exists. Hi.

"The succ function takes anything that has a defined successor and returns that successor, e.g. "succ 8" returns 9"

Translation, succ makes things bigger.

Hello everyone I'd like to introduce the new @ambassador from a.weirder.earth

This is my attempt to fix the followbot problem. If you're an instance admin, you can install an ambassador bot on your instance.

The bot will boost the most popular toots from your instance. Someone can follow your ambassador to have your instance's best content added to their federated feed.

Feedback welcome, code here: github.com/mbilokonsky/ambassador

I wrote an article about some of the protocols underneath StatusNet, and I plan to write more in the near future.

fknsrs.biz/blog/don-statusnet-

says something, I guess, that I'm more interested in actually implementing a (single user, not rails, not AGPL) ostatus server than actually _using_ any social media

something that would be nice/expensive for non-personal instances, probably: ability for users to block _their_ interaction with an entire server.

y'know the one thing about all this is I bet you start getting some serious issues once number of instances starts hitting a few thousand. Not sure how they're doing federation (and don't wanna look at code 'cause would get AGPL poisoned, and kinda wanna do a non-rails version of this all) but my suspicion is it'll get hard to scale.

hopping services and getting better usernames each time I guess?
