(Twitter stinks too.)
It sort of feels like the official Mastodon app is going to suck a lot of air out of the room for other clients. I hope there will be at least a few that continue development. https://mastodon.social/@metabolist/106394091593379772
Instagram stinks. And so does Facebook.
Just submitted a feature request to Mastodon for a timeline sync API. It would be cool if you could seamlessly transition between apps and devices without losing your place in the timeline.
in case anyone wanted to voice their support for it: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/16513

At what point do we admit that our government is violating our freedom of speech?
Huge news courtesy of Mike Rockwell about PocketCasts joining Automattic!
Just like Day One, I’m really hopeful about this acquisition and am interested to see how they can integrate the two platforms going forward. https://mike.rockwell.mx/asides/1937
Pocket Casts is joining Automattic. And I'm so happy that I can talk about it publicly now. :) https://wordpress.com/blog/2021/07/16/popular-podcast-app-pocket-casts-joins-automattic/
I don't want to go down the rabbit hole on the specifics of *this* because that isn't the point. I don't like the idea of Facebook removing social media posts at the direction of our government. https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1415727354463281159
Restructured https://mike.rockwell.mx/ last night. It will continue to house my shorter-form, Twitter-like posts, but that isn't surfaced from the homepage anymore since I'm Mastodon-first now.
Turns out development of Amarok was recently discontinued because of the upcoming official Mastodon client. I wonder how that will impact the Librem Social client. https://github.com/ReticentJohn/Amaroq
Swap Librem Social for Amarok in that list. Librem Social is based on Amarok, but I think its inferior in a number of ways.
