20° outside in beautiful NYC today. Feels great! And only great – no bad implications whatsoever! Enjoy today!

Hey folx. I'm writing a free book called Riot Medicine to help teach people first aid for protests, riots, and insurrections. Ⓐ 🏴 ⚕️

Some volunteers have already completed illustrations, but there's still many more that are needed before this can be distributed. If you're able to help out (even with just a single illustration!) get in touch.

You can find out more at riotmedicine.net

Examples of content (including illustrations) are provided below.

Hey folks! You may have seen this already, but I've fixed the link, and I'd still like some help/feedback on the thing.

I'm (still) building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.

Thoughts?

If you're hanging around waiting around a retail strip, use #OpenStreetMaps! Instead of killing time, use the OSMAnd app on #Android to edit the map and add shops, opening times, add descriptions, tag addresses, add websites, add wheelchair accessibility tags... An hour of wandering around during inevitable Christmas layby time can add lots of #opensource map data!

Didn't realize that Discourse is considering adding ActivityPub support.

I think that ActivityPub starts to get really interesting when non-social networking style apps start to share data on it.

The appropriate way to phrase this is: Twitter wants to make a Mastodon-clone. It's only fair.

LOL, even with all of the disagreements and divisions we have on the Fedi, the one thing we all agree on is fuck whatever Twitter is doing.

Hahaha, that's cool.

What are some solutions to abuse (more specifically, active content moderation) that people are working on?

In the IndieWeb, we have indieweb.org/Vouch being piloted and it’s going to be a early contender for the community.

I’m still personally interested in having something similar to akismet.com/ but for arbitrary rules one can set and share remotely to help with moderation (not with automatic banning - the chance for false positives are too high)… v2.jacky.wtf//post/7e3db626-63

Maintaining an open source project is not an easy task.

As a fediverse developer and someone who also lost a job recently, I sympathize with the Misskey developer.

Support your fellow developers, this ain't a competition ❤️
