One thing I really like about being on a small, semi-thematic instance is that the local timeline is actually readable and interesting. It's nice to have a low-key look at it periodically and see what others are up to or saying.
The only downside I see is that there are a few instance-locals that I don't bother to follow – I dig their stuff but I know I will probably see their posts on the local TL anyway.
Is that somehow problematic?
Does this indicate some deficiencies in the whole binary "follower" model of connection and discourse?
PSA: If you or someone close by have an encounter with a spot robot that - out of whichever reasons - you don't want to have: There is a lever under the robot's chest, a strong pull on it throws out the battery and the robot switches itself off immediately.
Caution: Keep your fingers away from joints and moving parts! Spot is strong and crushes fingers like cream cake.

world politics, facebook
This story is starting to blow up. A fired Facebook whistleblower documented how world leaders are using fake engagement on FB to manipulate, deceive, and harass citizens.
@lightone You're probably right. I just took the Readme at face value. I'm currently trying find out which part of it will be federated. Could be just buzzword mashup.
@raphael I love this automatic follow feature. I don't have to do anything. You would not have said it, I would not have realized you changed instance. And great choice to be part of lurk :)
I’d like to help others make better free and open source software so I’m making this standing offer: I’ll review a project's README for free. If you're interested, follow the link below. If you know of someone who might be interested, send the link to them.

So #peertube allows streaming now. Are there any peer tube instances that might want to host an two day event likely to have a peak of 800 viewers and if so, how much would they want to be compensated?
