@chara we're not programmers though
@chara that can change!
shit, this place isn't gonna unbuild itself. we need to start putting some work into hammering away at it
@chara you know what? I think you're right
fuck this place. let's replace it
@Codeawayhaley yeah like...maybe ActivityPub _itself_ isn't so bad although honestly, I've never heard anything good about it other than "people use it so *shrugs*"
@Codeawayhaley computer geek culture always settles on the first crap thing that comes along and then sticks with it
so let's try to do something a bit different this time
@chara ActivityPub is just one of quite a few fed protocols, I guess what is good is it is a standard therefore people who write software for it have clear idea of how it should behave, but in reality it is used an a Lingua Franca of federative networks and most software have support for other protocols.
I personally dislike the fact it uses JSON (I prefer XML's looks so tend to use that for data serialiation and markup) but idk if it really solves many problems that other protocols haven't already solved.
An instance for people who live in or around Seattle. Also for people who don't live in or around Seattle, but want to talk about Seattle-related things. Almost all applications are accepted. We aim to review all applications within a few hours of submission, but give us 24 hours before getting in touch other ways.
