I've spent quite a some time thinking about what's a good way to tag posts over at *Diaspora.

The way I see things, the fediverse can be(come) a huge database of (useful/funny/informative/creative/...) content.

But in order to not get lost in an unstructured stream of toots .. and instead to be able to browse and make use of all that awesome content .. ideally, all users would add meaningful tags to their toots.

What's other people's concept for getting the following two different things from the fediverse at the same time?

1. A 'personal' timeline .. with no more than a certain limit of say 10 toots/hour .. made up of toots from _carefully_ picked followed people.

2. An additional 'news' timeline .. with maybe even more than 60 toots/hour .. filled with toots from followed news media bots or other less carefully picked high frequency accounts.

I'd like to have both without using separate accounts.

Any ideas?

When I installed and launched the android app I looked at the getting started guide: scuttlebutt.nz/get-started/FAQ

It states:
"The first time you join the network there will be a lot to download and process. For real, this “inital syncing” process can take up to an hour and use a couple of gigabytes."

Is this true for as well? Space on a smartphone isn't as plentiful as on a regular computer.

Maybe you could put an answer to that in your manyver.se/faq

Agreed. At the moment it uses huge amounts of energy.

But. There might be a not so small chance that that's going to change in the future.

The reward for blocks being mined gets halved every 4 years. Unless the price of bitcoin reliably doubles every 4 years as well, this reward will be worth less and less money in the real world.
So the incentive to spend huge amounts of energy could become smaller and smaller.
Which in turn would mean that less energy would be used in total to "mine" coins.

@strypey @sir He said "almost certainly" not "certainly," and he said "cryptocurrency" not "blockchain." Where's the baby in that? As for electric...

Where's the sign-out button in mobile web browser mode?

I don't have to change to desktop mode, do I?

@QOTO ... you probably are already aware of the fact that the certificate for video.qoto.org/ expired on Nov 1 2018 ... right?

Anything I need to know about?

The research project funded by the EU aims to do just that: use electricity to produce fuels like propane.
