Beatrice Martini and Niels ten Oever wrote a report on this:
And Mark Nottingham (chair of HTTPWG and QUICWG) has requested that HTTP over QUIC be renamed to HTTP/3.
@aral Exactly. While the technical benefits from the protocols Google design are attracting, I don't know what the weaknesses are - and I definitely don't have the resources to investigate.
Will HTTP/3 aka HTTP/QUIC make it easier for Google to track anything they want? Will the complexity of the protocol lead to implementer monopoly, giving them control of all of our network usage?
I don't know, I don't know how to find out, and I don't want to risk it.
@ctrlaltdog of course! That should have been obvious considering all the fursonas and fanfiction I've been exposed to so far.
@ctrlaltdog I keep going too big and making imaginary worlds, and then I have to focus really hard to find people in those worlds, and then I have to find out whether those people even want to be my friend, or if they'd rather just live in the imagined world ignorant of me who imagined the world and them in it.
it's exhausting :(
@InspectorCaracal sure, unless there's a reply to a followers-only toot in the reply chain. A server aren't allowed to fetch followers-only toots, since it doesn't authenticate as the specific account that requests the fetch, when actually fetching the toots. (I think that's how it works, at least.)
The only way I know of to re-federate a followers-only toot is for the author to "boost to original audience".
@jk who made you Citizen of the Year? I mean, it's not that you don't deserve it, but..
Haiku vector icons are so small that they fit in the inode, so you get it "for free" when you read the file metadata. Here's a good post about how the file format works: https://blog.leahhanson.us/post/recursecenter2016/haiku_icons.html
Would anyone be interested in helping beta-read my novel?
It's a queer-friendly sci-fi book, set on solarpunk future world. A young scientist invents cool stuff, makes friends, has adventures, and overcomes trauma to help his planet deal with a political crisis.
If you're interested DM me. Boosting this is welcome. Thx!
With the latest #Facebook news, I have a renewed urge to get off of the platform. ... but that would be denying myself access to updates about real-world social events.
#Mastodon is a good replacement for "I want to post things to a stream for people to read and reply to".
But what about:
* Creating a group to socialize about a particular topic?
* Posting (private/public) events?
* Finding social/interest groups?
I've used Meetup.com for the last one but it's not nearly as popular here.
