I was hoping so 😃
@fitheach I really enjoyed this, can’t wait to read more of your work
Trying to spend more time creating rather than consuming. It always ends up using more time than you plan.
Thanks, I'll follow up on that. The point in my blog was not so much about me, but rather that my impressions might be indicative of 100s or 1000s of potential users. You won't hear from them they will just depart silently.
"Organic" growth is good because these users are more likely to stick. When the next Cambridge Analytica type scandal hits, the fediverse should be ready to accept lots of new users.
Oh, forgot to say...
I've installed Pleroma on a VPS and I'm testing it for someone. 😃
mastodon uses activitypub
also federation/fediverse are synonyms in some cases, there is no formal definition. we definitely sometimes say "join the federation" when talking about mastodon and not diaspora
@Gargron @fitheach @officialcjunior @angristan @bobstechsite so #mastodon doesn't use OStatus? What other networks can I connect with? Can I connect with someone on say Friendica or Hubzilla? How do I do it? Also, what is Mastodon shuts down? Can I migrate to another instance? Sorry for the barrage of questions.
@thinkMoult @fitheach @officialcjunior @angristan @bobstechsite mastodon can connect to hubzilla, peertube, misskey, funkwhale - anything that supports activitypub. friendica and gnu social still use ostatus and we have legacy support for ostatus in mastodon so you can connect to them too but it's a bit 2nd class nowadays and ostatus is on its way out (old, bad protocol)

To be clear: you're talking about Sean's Venn diagram which I included in my blog? It does have Mastodon within the ActivityPub circle. If an error in my text, I'm happy to correct.
I had a feeling federation/fediverse were interchanged but I happen to prefer the latter.
@notclacke , the last time I tried to propose it to the Diaspora team, Dennis kind of shot it down.
I'm sure they'd be more receptive to hearing about ActivityPub now, but presenting and proposing it would require a compelling story demonstrating the fediverse's migration to it, and a person dedicated to actually doing the development work to make it happen for #Diaspora.
Unfortunately OStatus is unlikely to work with Diaspora's aspect system, so that discrepancy would have to be addressed.
Good to know. There isn't a "Made with..." in the footer nor a generator tag in the head which is why I qualified my statement. I was aware of the CMS type capabilities. I'll add a note to the blog.
