@cwebber I propose "git whomstdve", with "git whomst", as an alias for those in a hurry

Once you hide most of the bots you'll find more interesting stuff on the Federated feed than on Twitter. It's not a bad system. The most important point about it is perhaps the removal of the corporate man in the middle who has finely engineered what you're allowed to see, say, or like.

@tn5421 original instance i wrote it on is gone, heres a copy that federated - https://fediverse.blog/~/DielansBlog@melonmancy.net/finding-your-way-around-the-fediverse

Tons of now-dead instances or MIA users mentioned on it, which makes me sad to read it again tbh :venomsnakedemon2:

I wrote a README on getting an API token for a bot account right with curl. It's basically the mastodon docs guide without all the bloat, and I include shell commands so you don't have to make them yourself: https://github.com/TaizWeb/fedibot-guide
@kaia @rozenglass it "works" on mobile, though it's kinda hard to use with the scaling
we ported bloat to mobile a bit ago:

The beauty of #riscv to me, is the distillation of computing down to 47 basic mathematical functions, and opensourcing that into a foundation so it will always be available to everyone. Leonardo da Vinci said "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

It will take time for the IT industry to adjust to a new #opensource world.
