@impiaaa "at least this one is pretty"
@impiaaa "also we're making up our own new protocol" i see no issues with that, especially when the people doing that have no experience building that kind of thing afaik
From the sound of it, they just mean something like LitePub, a version of ActivityPub with some added semantics. Not sure what the progress is on that protocol, though.
The blog post mentions that some of our mod tools "waste time", I'd be curious to hear the specifics and what alternatives they come up with...
@ben if it had goals it certainly did not make them known
@impiaaa they claim Mastodon takes 2GB of memory just to start up, and my instance is currently using less than 200 megabytes
they claim 64 megabytes of memory for 1000 users, which I can only assume means 1000 users who are all logged out
they've also got a screenshot of their "great design" which appears to be a nonfunctional mockup, but for some reason the posts are not in chronological order and also every single one of the mocked-up posts is more than 2 months old
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
