The Financial Times is shutting down their Mastodon instance (

Their reason? Security, liability, and cost.

With all due respect, I believe they went about their instance the wrong way:

1. Keep your instance moderated, you're less likely liable
2. Keep your instance closed to registrations, you're more secure
2. Keep your instance light, it's inexpensive

Also: Financial Times' site runs in WordPress. Why not use WordPress as an instance?

Updates about -- the Fediverse streaming audio / video service that I'm building with @reiver (and a team)!

1. We have successfully broadcast to 20 people distributed across North America. Some folks on the Fediverse were there to witness it!

2. We have wireframed a registration process for joining a instance

3. We have also wireframed a home feed and post UI/UX

4. We've developed an additional skin for video conferencing

It's worth looking at the client-to-server aspect of ActivityPub.

Yes, it's not popular right now.

However, it's a W3C-backed standard that is documented.

I’ve lost the count of how many Mastodon native apps I have tried so far. Emoji takahe 🤣

Dear of , you have a wonderful opportunity that is rarely granted to you. For the first time, you're in an online public space that is not American, that is not centered around the US, and as I'm typing this, a place where the majority of users are not Americans. You can open yourselves to the world as you've rarely been able to before.

So please, stop expressing yourselves like the US is the default country here and that most users are Americans. We're not. Love.

Hello world!1
