@[email protected] and anyone else:

If you want to follow Twitter accounts from Mastodon, there's a bridge called Bird.Makeup that still works and is building a workaround to this issue.

I'm working on a Mastodon client called Agora that integrates this bridge into the search, so that if you search for "[email protected]" it automatically loads the bridged Mastodon version of the profile:

Jack Dorsey doesn't "own" Blusky, he just gave them grant money in the beginning to kick things off, and is one of the board members.

"Prior to the seed round, Bluesky's website described the company as a Public Benefit LLC owned by CEO Jay Graber and other Bluesky employees. Post-seed round, the company describes itself as a public-benefit C Corp."

It would help to not have a complete mess of a naming scheme for their phones. It should be:

Moto E: Budget/entry level Moto G: Mid-range Moto Edge/RAZR: Flagship phones

There’s no need to confuse everything by adding 20 different versions of each tier with stylus/power/activ/whatever added to the name.

Dude this is amazing! Exactly the sort of thing I've been hoping would pop up to further "decentralize" the torrent search experience.

So I'm trying to run it on my machine through the docker-compose option, and I'm seeing something weird. It shows as successfully running, but when I go to the port it should be running on, I get "unable to connect" on my browser.

When I check my containers running, it shows the 3 bitmagnet containers, but the port doesn't show.

Sorry to nitpick, but I see the comparison of a company market cap with country GDP a lot and it's a pet peeve of mine lol. Market cap is the value of the company, while GDP is equivalent to the total "revenue" that a country's economy generated that year. So a better comparison would be 2022 Microsoft revenue vs 2022 GDP of a country.

The common complaints i’ve read are that it had mediocre battery life and the screen felt cramped.

Tablets are good for "consumption" vs laptops/desktops that are better for "creation/production".

If all you want to do is browse the web, social media, watch videos, etc then tablets are a simpler interface for doing that, compared to dealing with all the extra things involved in a desktop OS.

For creation/production, aka "real work", laptop/desktop is obviously much more efficient and powerful for that.

That's the thing, if instance admins do that to avoid duplicate communities, won't that just mean that a few huge instances will be the ones with most of the popular communities, and have outsized sway/traffic costs?

Then we're back to square one and defeat the whole purpose of distributing load across many medium instances. Or am I misunderstanding how this works?
