In-reply-to > That's nice! The user counter might make it easier for potential users to make a decision whilst cresting their account, based on how overloaded—or not—a pod could be, or how much chatter—or not—a pod might carry.

That and some way (maybe via some JS) to measure latency from User to target Pod 🤔

In-reply-to > @eaplmx what would "Hispanic content" be? We need to start by defining that. If all you meant was having one in which Spanish speaking people congregates, then you are a suitable candidate to spin one up. 😂 Now, I have my reservations with that. I wouldn't want to peer, nor follow anyone from a Spanish speaking pod (and I know the language!). I am sure others will want it less.

English may be the language of the “Internet” but I have no problems with multi-lingual pods 🤗 In fact it should be encouraged and at some point we might be able to have built in translation services 👌

In-reply-to > @prologic By the way, most of them are located in English speaking countries. Is anyone here interested in having one for Hispanic content? I'm in MX, BTW

I would love to see more multi/user pods in countries like Mexico, Africa, China, Malaysia, Taiwan etc 👌

In-reply-to > I think I should ask before (excuse me if I missed that part of the discussion somewhere else), what's the purpose of having a counter of users? Honestly curious from a design perspective

It has no purpose and doesn’t track users at all, it’s just a measure of a pod’s activity and is just an interesting number 👌

In-reply-to > iOS 15.3 (notes) is out with security bug fixes, etc., but is worth mentioning specifically that it includes a fix for a Safari bug that could cause your recent browsing history and details about your identity to be leaked to malicious entities. To see if you are affected, browse to this website on your iOS device, and run the test. After installing the update no related security issues were detected on any of my devices.

@david@netbros.com Thanks for the PSA 👌

In-reply-to > In local news you don't care about, a pigeon stepped on an electricity line, something exploded (including the pigeon) and I don't have electricity at home. It makes you think a lot...

@eaplmx Wait what?! 😳 Did you happen to capture the moment? 🤣

In-reply-to > Microsoft Teams Surpasses 270 Million Monthly Active Users Microsoft's Teams communications and collaboration platform topped 270 million monthly active users in the December quarter, continuing to add users but at a much slower pace than in the initial months of the pandemic. From a report: Satya Nadella, the Microsoft CEO, revealed the latest number Tuesday afternoon in conjunction with the company's quarterly earnings ... ⌘ Read more

@david@netbros.com But Microsoft Teams is so garbage! 😱 How do they even have a Million MAU 😳 Let alone 270+ 🤦‍♂️

In-reply-to > @movq Or folks could choose to not host their feeds over inferior protocols 😂

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Sure no worries. And I agree, that’s why I love Twtxt (the spec) as well, it is so simple to work with and build clients, tools, search engines, ecosystems and all sorts of things – Even if the “components” I’m building are “complex” per se; the protocols/specs used are quite simple 👌

In-reply-to > This article is a great long piece about how the mRNA vaccines were developed, from the discovery of mRNA in 1961 to the development of gene therapy techniques to the push to develop an AIDS vaccine in the 90s.

@david@netbros.com Yeah I’ve been doing some reading and watching various interviews on the history of mRNA. The tech has been around for a while that’s for sure. It’s not “all suddenly” new like some would believe 😅

In-reply-to > One possible way to use twtxt for private messages would be using http authentication, then it's private to anyone who's allowed to see the twtxt.txt file, otherwise the it returns 401 Unauthorized. That's not exactly an easy solution since both parties need to agree on authentication, and no client is set up for that, but it at least is self-hosted and decentralised :D

@screem@yarn.yarnpods.com I could thing of a few dozen things of course 😅

@~duriny@envs.net I’ve actually thought about this, and it coudl work but it might be a bit “too simple”. @xuu@txt.sour.is has some ideas around Private Feeds too as well as @fastidious@arrakis.netbros.com – One of the hardest problems of course as you rightly point out is how do agree on and distributed some kind of secret material (be it symmetric or assymetric) – We’ve also toyed briefly with the idea of deferring all that “hard work” on to something like keys.pub
