Activitypub or Atproto ... one item that both Mastodon have in common with Bluesky is amount of "spam" links and accounts boosting those "spammy" accounts

Several "award winning art / photo" profiles I saw had 5 or more links including their pinned post

Win goes to Bluesky since they seem to have better control of that ... for now

Cross-posts to BlueSky have hashtags messed up on specific scenario

Currently trying the #BlueSky cross-posting, I'm finding out that I'm having problems with the newly-added support for hashtags in BlueSky in a specific case - if I add some text, then a link, then a series of hashtags, the hashtags will be messed up, and I'm not sure if the problem is from Friendica's side or from BlueSky's.

We pitched BlueSky against Mastodon. See how it fares:

#mastodon #bluesky

The developer of the Graysky client for Bluesky has written up how to embed replies from Bluesky as comments on your blog.

Like I said for Mastodon comments, not going to enable this on my site.
#Bluesky #comments

#FediBlock and for bridging fediverse folks to Bluesky against their will (and in likely contravention of GDPR in the EU) with typical Silicon Valley techbro sense of entitlement:

“[O]pt in results in far fewer users, and users are critical for a bridge to be useful.”¹

Hmm... I would have joined but seems like it requires a phone number. Big no-go for me personally.
With federation in the future, maybe it won't be required on every server so let's see.


#mastodon is my preferred #social #media <img class=" title=":mastodon:"/> I don't care about #bluesky :blobcatcoffee:

Posting this quote from #BlueSky developer Paul Frazee, as it is one of my favorite posts from my platform and exactly how I feel about BlueSky and Nostr too. This is not zero-sum and as I see bridges forming (now between Masto-Nostr, soon between ActivityPub and Bluesky) am excited to see the bridges start to form.

New Blogpost: Why not BlueSky?

#activitypub #bluesky #mastodon #SocialMedia

For this weekend's coding project, I built a tiny single-user Bluesky→ActivityPub one-way bridge I named “Pinhole”. If there's someone on Bluesky whose posts you want in your Mastodon feed, you can download and run it yourself: :fietkau_software:

Caveats: 1. I intentionally built it anti-scalable: you can use it to follow one Bluesky account from one fedi account, and that's it. 2. You need experience with web servers.

#fediverse #ActivityPub #MastoDev #Bluesky #atproto

I've been following things in #Bluesky, but the way it renders links really puzzles me.

1. When @davew is posting links, Bluesky is not showing the link cards.

2. When @jeffjarvis posts links his posts have link cards.

3. When @kottke posts links it does not show link cards, and includes some brackets.

This is frustrating, I would like to see the link cards always because I want to see the title and image of the post.

Also, some of the links show a warning when I click and some don't.

Fuck it. #YOLO

#Bluesky continues to be entirely non-responsive to the numerous security vulnerabilities I've reported to them, so I spent the evening writing up a nice README and a framework with exploit modules, and just made it all public.

Have fun.

#infosec #security

Si, esto pasa en #Bluesky pero también pasa acá en Mastodon, no se pueden subir Gif tampoco acá.

¿Para cuando @Gargron ? 🤔

Content warning: #Bluesky user account. User has a slur as their handle

Federation with #Bluesky (via #ATprotocol) is getting closer.

The sandbox environment has now been launched, which means you can set up your own AT protocol-enabled server.

It's possible that Bluesky will finally start federating by the end of summer. However, knowing how most dev teams work, this launch is not a certainty. It always takes time to iron out bugs.

How successful do you think Bluesky's federation will be? And how will it impact the current userbase using Bluesky?

#Barcelona, #Meta's Twitter competitor, will be ready by summer.

And lest you believe #ActivityPub integration was just some rumour, think again. In a slide, Meta confirms that Barcelona will indeed be decentralized and will be compatible with Mastodon.

Everyone who thought that AT protocol would easily win over ActivityPub, and that #Bluesky would kill Mastodon just because a few influencers joined doesn't understand the sheer marketing power and pull that Meta has at its disposal.

But believe me, I'm not exactly cheering on Meta here. Generally, where Meta goes, shenanigans happen. I simply don't think Meta is capable of releasing a product without dark patterns.

Nevertheless, I don't think the Fediverse is even close to preparing for what will happen once Barcelona starts federating.

We should all be taking Barcelona very seriously.

The "protocol wars" on the #openweb such as #bluesky, #Nostr, and #activertypub. That building bridges between these protocols can be a good solution, as it is a permissionless way to connect different protocols without needing to get the codebase to change their project. The protocols are all #4opens and #openweb native, which is a positive development. However, the cultures of these protocols are different and can create messiness in the discussions.

the key part is #4opens we don't have to ask its #FOSS and yes not saying you are not right, the current non federated #bluesky would be pointless.

#Nostr all ready has a working 2 way bridge to #activertpub, I am transparently reading and replying to #Nostr users.

The "protocol wars" of new #openweb protocols, including #bluesky, #Nostr, and #activertypub, am suggesting that bridges between them are a good solution to the current issues. All of these protocols are #4opens and #openweb native, which is a positive development. However, the cultures of these protocols are different and this can create messiness in the discussions.

I advocate for a grassroots #DIY culture and urge people to focus on building bridges rather than adding to the mess.

#bluesky #Nostr #activertypub

They all share #4opens #openweb tech, so this is a win.

Where they differ is in the "culture" they come from and push.

#bluesky comes from surveillance capitalism, it's from the #dotcons and has meany of the same assumptions, just "better".

#Nostr comes from the #encryptionists and #bitcoin bro crew and suffers from being from this mess.

#activertypub is #openweb native and comes from the #4opens traditions the whole software world is actually built on.


#bluesky If you take the business wank out, this is exactly how the ten-year-old #OMN project works #NGO masked #dotcons

While I'm not inherently against competing protocols, it's really hard to see BlueSky as anything other than an attempt to (a) keep the fediverse from succeeding, and (b) taking over a "growing market".

#BlueSky #fediverse #OpenWeb

Threw some #BlueSky thoughts into a blog post make me regret it uwu

Looking like the flow of history is going to be a step to the #openweb with the recent #dotcons take up of #activitypub this will push Twitters #bluesky to a “me to” project, unless they bridge to AP which they will very likely will refuse to do, like diaspora, the same #geekproblem motivation repeating itself.

We do live in instresting times, agen for #openweb tech and its social power.

Matt Mullenweg (founder of Wordpress and current owner of Tumblr) wants to know how you want Tumblr integrated into the #fediverse (or #bluesky). Those of you who have Twitter accounts should go voice your ideas directly cause this will probably happen in the not so distant future (they already had a job posting listed last year where they were looking for #ActivityPub people)
