Broke my belt this morning and locked myself out - of course the day my fiance has a conference at work and is going to be home late. Are we sure it isn't Monday today?

Hellloooo a bunch of people I know would like to understand #activityPub better.

We have a varying amount of more-than-zero web-tech understanding.

Any recommendation for a good introduction presentation we can watch together?

How about a break from all of the climate-related fire and storm disaster news for a nice prose-infusion on a #SolarPunk based community infrastructure? :bio_mech:

Distributed and decentralized #energy is the path to infrastructure #resilience amid escalating climate uncertainty.
Obviously.

A locally-administered Mastodon instance is to the Fediverse what a neighborhood microgrid is to the backup potential of the grid as a whole.

A #Microgrid is an independent electric grid that can operate as a node independent of the central power grid. It allows for a steady power supply even when an outage on the main grid happens. Several types of energy can be used to "collaborate" on a microgrid's design (See "The Neighbors Theory" on QE) for energy and informational storage capacity ideas.

Some big IFs to keep in mind:

(1) Photovoltaic panels make use of (and therefore contribute to the mining of) rare earth materials; mined materials are not sustainable. Continents with a hefty or spreading desert / #desertification problem are evidence of this.

(2) Electricity generation from renewable sources can be intermittent and variable depending on many factors including time of day and weather. What kind of energy your grid should be powered on depends on how well you can predict climate change.

(3) Distribution protection: when power generation happens within the distribution system, energy flows both ways, making voltage regulation especially difficult.

(4) While "rare earth" metal recycling can be done, recycling on the whole ought to be preceded by "Reduce, Reuse". What do you care enough to reuse? What does your town care enough to recycle?

Over the weekend there was an event. A wormhole opened allowing for a glimpse through time and space to somewhere else. It was a fascinating experience called #Constellations by @JoanieLemercier@twitter.com. Brought to town by @ImagineWirral@twitter.com.

These fine prints and pin by @anaisfae arrived today. \o/ Check out her page! Beautiful stuff.

@tofuwabohu If the post you wish to interact with is inside Mastodon network, go to this remote post, copy link location (for example: "mastodon.social/@Gargron/10299"). Paste this link into the Search bar inside your Mastodon UI. Press Enter. Your server should pull the post.

Hm, looks like it's not visible from apps unfortunately, so I'll either keep the cluttered profile or finally create an introduction. 😬

Just found this cool mastodon feature I didn't know yet: You can feature accounts on your profile that will show up in a special section!
There's a similar feature for hashtags you can enable in your account's settings. Looks a little nicer than cluttering your bio (as I did until now), imho!

How can I interact (comment/like/boost) with a toot that didn't federate to my instance? Following the author will improve federation for future posts, but what about existing posts?

This was apparently conceived of by one of those Koch-funded propaganda accounts, but I think I just found my next tattoo
