(#sg2wy5q) @prologic 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 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 @prologic 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>


@prologic (#x4gjcjq) Good idea, and shouldn’t be too hard to implement as far as the dynamic part of the instance name etc. My problem with SVGs is I have no real artistic ability to draw anything. The extent of my ability is making text in Inkscape and converting them to paths (to preserve the font styling), which isn’t very efficient 🤣
