Of course in my case the social media applications within the Fediverse are not what’s most interesting. It’s the generality of its protocol. ActivityPub appears to have an easier time with different use cases than other protocols.

The link to a Fediverse server list in a previous post died but fediverse.party also shows the diverse types of applications that use the ActivityPub protocol.

Insularity is a term that shows up in the philosophy of the Fediverse every so often. Generally, the more insular a community, the more populous/extreme/niche. Some Fediverse indexes calculate insularity rates.

Imagine similar stats for the . Like — what’s the and domain linking insularity within/between Facebook relative to other small/large islands? That would be extraordinary, especially for journalism which is pretty much dead.

This goes without saying but.. any sufficiently ambitious group of business persons want more than just to be on the Internet, they want to own it completely, the Fediverse is no exception :)

Back when looking into JSON Feeds it didn’t link to its schema, but there’s one in SchemaStore/schemastore and sonicdoe/jsonfeed. You could validate a feed with a tool like check-jsonschema.

shell
$ check-jsonschema --schemafile jsonfeed-v1.1.json feed.json
ok -- validation done

The upside of the Feed is a lot more human than technical in the sense that it’s a mapping of /Atom to the world. There are many people who prefer JSON over .

if anyone tells you that is dead — they’re in a bubble. Bing is our witness; the hasfeed: prefix returns sites with a feed, the feed: prefix gives a direct feed link. No.. I’m not a secret Microsoft™ agent — DuckDuckGo and others support this too ;-) 38B+ are big boy numbers.
