@kyzh and one more: you suggest that making moderation more efficient might be an important aim (my wording, but close to yours I think) - do you think that maximising the efficiency of moderation might encourage larger instances? And do we want this if decentralisation is the ultimate goal?
@kyzh just watching your FOSSDEM talk. Love
Quick clarifying Q: on slide you mention that 80% of users are on 10 instances - is figure different for active users? And do you have a link to data you can share?

In case anyone here likes speculative fiction- here's a piece I wrote for an AHRC project on Crafting the Commons...
Does anybody know what is up with DSpace (commonly used foss institutional repository platform, used especially by Universities - https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace) and server federation? I'd thought this was on the roadmap, but cant find anything on it anymore.
Also, because this:
Worth noting that people often complain about #pwa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_web_application) lack of support for icon badges and push notifications.
I avoid both deliberately for reasons of productivity and mental health, so lack of features is a plus for me.
For more, see here: https://humanetech.com/
So, I'm now running Mastodon on iOS devices as a #pwa app (both mastodon native and @pinafore, h/t @yala). This works like a charm, and I can now see why app development hasn't been very impressive so far.
One ux question for other folks who are ahead of me on this: when I tap a link and it opens inside the pws browser (aka the "app") how the heck do I send the page to another app (like DEVONthink or pocket) for archiving? All I've got are a "done" button and AAa button to modify settings. 🤦♂️
Guerrilla Open Access [pamphlet]
Just found this 2018 pamphlet titled "Guerrilla Open Access," a collaboration between Memory of the World, Christopher Kelty, Balasz Bodo, & Larie Allen. Brings up some great issues for OA-minded scholars to consider: https://monoskop.org/images/3/30/Memory_of_the_World_ed_Guerrilla_Open_Access_2018.pdf
Academic papers are written by human beings who want their work to be read; and these people actually pay to be published in those journals. the journals do not pay them. And all journal licensing deals stipulate that the original author retains the right to share their own research.
So 99% of the time if you email the author of an academic paper and ask for the PDF, they will gladly and excitedly give it to you for free over email.
Maybe a dumb question... how do I put icons in my display name? #MastoTips
PSA: In 3 days, 2 February 2020, pretty much every single public GitHub repository will be archived in the Arctic World Archive in Norway.
This is being done without the explicit consent of users, and the website has no way to add yourself to a blacklist.
So, if you do not want your code to be archived for the next 1000 years, you might wanna make your GitHub repositories private, or otherwise make them inaccessible by 2/2/2020.
