Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:
I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- nerd/weeb shit
- meta stuff
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff
And that's mostly it ✨

So the Verge article for which I wrote some thoughts about Jack Dorsey announcing #Bluesky is out and it used only a few sentences from what I came up with, so I wanna share the full thing...
I was asked, if Twitter did indeed adopt #ActivityPub instead of coming up with something new, would it be better or worse for the decentralized social web?
And just like that, Mastodon is taken seriously and gets a decent writeup that that doesn't treat it like a side show, or say that it's "crumbling." https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/12/21012553/twitter-bluesky-decentralized-social-network-developers-reaction-mastodon-activitypub
