Taking the opportunity of provisioning a new laptop to actually move my Mastodon tab to somewhere where I might check it from time to time. It'd be nice to slowly migrate over here from Twitter...
Wondering (more expansively) over here (rather than Twitter) whether @somethingnew has the "specific regulations" (searching for that is the easiest way to find it) for privacy and data in its manifesto? And apologies, @Floppy, for not submitting a pull request to add it (although I'll try to find time later to do so) http://idlewords.com/talks/notes_from_an_emergency.htm
I'm talking about DoES Liverpool (and making in general I expect) over at Chester Devs next Weds. https://www.meetup.com/NorthWalesTech/events/238387320/ @rossjones fancy a trip to Chester? :-)
Mastodon, Twitter and publics
Long ago, I wrote about the theory of social sites, with the then-young Twitter as the exemplar. As Mastodon, GnuSocial and other federated sites have caught some attention recently, I thought I'd revisit these theories.
my pals and i are very interested in making art bots that address the ethical and social challenges of bots in social media and beyond. we're always talking about about these sorts of things, and it's why i decided to make my bot's tweets unlisted by default. https://botsin.space mentions one of our common principals, "Bots Should Punch Up" https://www.crummy.com/2013/11/27/0 If you would like to chat w/ or other bot makers like me look for the #botAlly hashag. :grin:
