Free Software Foundation (fsf)'s status on Thursday, 20-Apr-2017 18:50:43 UTC Free Software Foundation We Rickrolled the FCC today because we're NEVER GONNA GIVE UP ON #NetNeutrality. Free software needs a free internet.

Bob Mottram (bob)'s status on Monday, 17-Apr-2017 22:05:59 UTC Bob Mottram I think this might be worth some sort of mini-celebration. I never thought I'd live to see the day.

Also, we're not all communists like @hannes2peer. I, for one, am a space communist. Big difference.

Gather 'round children, and I will tell you about an age when people couldn't just look up song lyrics.
We went around singing the wrong things for years. We didn't know any better. It was a simpler time.

@maiyannah @deadsuperhero For one thing, we might finally get a common protocol so that Diaspora, GNU Social, Pump.IO, MediaGoblin, Mastodon, etc all work together. I'm also working on a test suite so there should be less "errors" between implementations.
That was the main goal of the working group (and why we spent so long getting community feedback).

Linux Walt (@lnxw48a1) (lnxw48a1)'s status on Friday, 28-Apr-2017 12:43:14 UTC Linux Walt (@lnxw48a1) I understand both @mmn and @gargron are working on better conversation-tracking. It should improve across the #fediverse soon.

1. Mastodon's awesome and attractive.
2. Community organising and constructing positive, constructive open platforms that interoperate.
3. "I don't know if it will adhere to established standards and start inventing its own protocols for stuff and lose its way in the world of flashy bling. So I'm afraid I can't guarantee that you'll be able to use it to communicate with me in the future, but hopefully it'll work just fine at least for a while."
MMN-o ✅⃠ (mmn)'s status on Monday, 17-Apr-2017 22:32:43 UTC MMN-o ✅⃠ First GIF, now MP3. Let's relive the '90s and forget about all the new, improved and libre-from-the-start technologies!!!

themightyglider (themightyglider)'s status on Wednesday, 26-Apr-2017 17:33:53 UTC themightyglider Since I know that librivox.org offers RSS-Feeds for pod-catchers, I started to listen to a view classics I always wanted to read but never had enough time for. ATM I enjoy 'The Golem' by Gustav Meyrink.

So for OStatus, you gotta implement:
* Atom (RFC4287)
* WebFinger (RFC7033)
* ActivityStreams (http://activitystrea.ms/specs/atom/1.0/)
* Salmon (http://www.salmon-protocol.org/salmon-protocol-summary)
* Portable Contacts (https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-smarr-vcarddav-portable-contacts-00)
* PubSubHubbub (http://pubsubhubbub.github.io/PubSubHubbub/pubsubhubbub-core-0.4.html)
And this is the glue: https://www.w3.org/community/ostatus/wiki/images/9/93/OStatus_1.0_Draft_2.pdf
