Everyone should check out Fork Awesome. Like the name implies it's a fork of Font Awesome: https://forkawesome.github.io/Fork-Awesome/
Recently Font Awesome has been going in a more corporate direction and seem to be adding less icons people actually want and more random ones people didn't really ask for.
Fork Awesome is based off pre-5.0 Font Awesome and adds icons like Diaspora, Mastodon, GNU Social, XMPP and even an icon for ActivityPub itself
So I'm doing an analysis of monolingual toots to gauge the effectiveness of cld3 in language classification for something the size of an average toot.
cld3 is the engine Mastodon uses for language classification.
If you generally only toot in one language (I don't, I can't use myself as an example), and don't mind me scraping your toots for analysis (I won't publish anything), let me know in a DM.
I'm eventually going to publish the results on my blog or something.

I wonder if the things we like about the #fediverse are not simply a consequence of it being "too small to bother" for companies, compared to the large commercial social media platforms. If it were larger, companies would definitely get interested. I imagine that e.g. if Twitter joined the fediverse, it would change it beyond recognition.
While learning more about canvas and browser APIs I managed to write a simple script that resizes and compresses images directly in the browser.
It is saving bandwidth and upload time by trading it for computational work on the client side. The code itself is really simple, but if it saves anyone's time, I will be more than happy when they use it.
This is actually from my sony a6000. A lot of the underexposed images tend to have this 90s film camera quality to it after it. I am not sure, if it is what I tend to gravitate toward, or has to do with the properties of the film back in the day.
