Thinking about chat apps again…

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Lately, I’ve been thinking about chat apps more often again. Actually, I’ve always been a fan of Telegram, and it’s still a good messenger, but I’m a bit suspicious about the latest developments (such as the Fragment platform, with which Telegram is now implementing its crypto plans again).

“Bloggers, Dump Your Twitter Card Tags”

Published on in 🔗 Links

It’s crazy to think how much bandwidth is being used by metadata tags. Every company wants to invent it’s own new system. Wouter Groeneveld gives a brief overview and recommends getting rid of them (for the most part). I agree with him completely. The only one of these systems that my blog supports is Microformats, which is quite popular among the IndieWeb community.

I reworked the current ActivityPub implementation of GoBlog, fixed ActivityPub replies to posts and also added support for reply updates and deletions. Under the hood it’s using the comment system. 🥳 Using the go-ap/activitypub library, working with ActivityPub is much easier (but still more complicated than I wish it would be).

Today was already the 4th day that I worked using a mobile hotspot with a speed limit of 10 mbps down and upload. This is definitely doable. I’m glad I didn’t have to transfer any larger files. Faster internet is coming in two days. But I chose wisely when I signed my mobile contract last year without a data cap.
