When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.

1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.

2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.

3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.

Does anyone have any resources on cultural-historical periods outside Europe? I know plenty about renaissance and baroque and stuff. Where do I go to learn the big lines of arabic culture? Sub-saharan african culture? South asian culture?

Anyone here interested in forming an online #writinggroup?

We could talk about writing, exchange ideas, read eachother's stories and give feedback and set up a online-meeting (once a week or every two weeks).

Why many people don't and won't use open source federated sites 

What's that website for keeping track of all the webcomic you read?

Cc @InspectorCaracal @Alexis

you say the death god is ageless, is immortal, is invincible simply for having endured in the theology of a vicious and warlike cult with so many conquered shards still stuck in its boots. i say to you gods may be killed, and even death may die. its immortality is propaganda, a sign of the envoy of the spirit of death which infests the mind and diverts any thought of its absence, of its eviction. tear out the infection and witness the brighter day that lives in your own potential.

@ajroach42 I'm working on a gardening game, where the player can grow 25 different pixellated flowers. Today we've been drawing patterns for the match-(3/4/5) minigame that will let player crossbreed flowers.

: A program organised in chapters rather than in modules.

It's mandatory to include an introduction either before or in chapter 1. It should give a clear view of the goals of the program.

Code in any chapter can only depend on and call code in previous chapters.

Reading the entire program in proper chapter order should give an understanding of the program and it's architecture.

Reasoning for why a part does what it does should be included in the chapter where the part is defined.

the main problem with web apps is that it just isnt a real program is it. doesnt have proper buttons with a 3D look to them. and you can select all the text??? takes ages to load. doesnt end in ".exe"
lots of problems with web apps

You might have heard the phrase "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish" to refer to microsoft's (historic?) approach to open standards and so on. A youtube comment I just saw suggested this phrase should instead be "Control, Alt, Delete".
