(#sojctqq) [2 / 2]…made far worse by platforms such as Facebook etc using algorithms to encourage negativity and conflict.

I think communities such as the ones you find here have a massive advantage of not having those algorithms obviously, but also the nature of the platform (protocol?) is you kind of make your community around you. And the whole experience is more interpersonal (as much as can be in text exchanges) and full of less distractions. I could ramble on but you get it 😄


(#sojctqq) Yeah I think behind a keyboard and monitor has made people act quite differently as a society towards each other. For example people will be rarely so radical or lean to such political extremes in person, but online is a different matter. I think also this grows exponentially on larger online spaces - the reason why as communities grow they tend to become more ‘noisy’ and what some may deem ‘toxic’. I think we’ve all seen that in some way or another, on those platforms [12]


(#sg2wy5q) @prologic@twtxt.net Yeah I agree; my issue is not that the technology can be used in such a powerful way, it’s the fact the data has to come from these big tech companies gathering it up all the wrong way.

In any case, I already use the government mandated QR check in app thing, I will not consent my data to be vacuumed up and given over by the likes of Bookface and Google 😆


(#pftowua) @prologic@twtxt.net Funny you should say that because I when I was first bringing https://we.loveprivacy.club to life I had a similar thought, but then with the new static discovery thing and also the option to switch on public viewing of the cached posts I didn’t think of it any more, thinking it would probably just be extra complexity at the time. I guess the question is how difficult (or not) would it be to implement? I like the idea personally.


@adi@f.adi.onl @slashdot@feeds.twtxt.net (#i2msm4a) Ad revenue. A lot of companies start out with noble enough goals but can start slipping as more revenue is needed (or wanted). Happens all the time. Even Mozilla. What you might call “selling out” I suppose.

I agree about Brave ads in the browser, think I switched them off. Found the browser itself to be quite decent, nowadays I use both Brave and Librewolf depending on what I’m doing, keep things isolated to a specific browser.


(#x4gjcjq) @jlj@twt.nfld.uk @fastidious@twtxt.net @prologic@twtxt.net Hehe fair enough 😄

I don’t know much about SVGs myself but I do know that to have the pod name part be dynamic it would have to be pure text inside the SVG, not a transform path or whatever the SVG lingo is, i.e not drawn
eg. the ‘a yarn social pod’ part of my Pod’s is text

<tspan style="font-family:Scheherazade;-inkscape-font-specification:Scheherazade;fill:#fff">a yarn.social pod</tspan>
