I have a question: Is there something similar to Telegram channels in Matrix? What should I do when I want to enable people to be notified about new blog posts using Matrix?

“AirTags Expose Dodgy Postal Industry”

Published on in 🔗 Links

Last year, YouTuber MegaLag tried to send several AirTag-ged packages from Germany to North Korea with DHL. But instead of arriving there, they were either misrouted to South Korea or ended up in China. In a new video, he further researches the reasons and also takes a look at DHL’s sorting center in Frankfurt at their invitation. Very interesting!

More thoughts about ActivityPub support for this Hugo blog

Published on in 💬 Micro

I plan to add a bit of ActivityPub to my blog to be able to interact with the fediverse, without the need to use Mastodon, Pleroma or my current microblog. Just my static Hugo blog with it’s dynamic Go-backend. Because I don’t want to implement everything from scratch - I haven’t yet added media support for MicroPub - I am in search for libraries that help implementing ActivityPub, or at least give me a starting point. I discovered the library activityserver, which is used by a tool called pherephone by write.as, maybe that can help me.

What I still have to think about though, is how I’m going to connect it with the rest of the system. And what’s also still missing: The media endpoint and update support for MicroPub (I should do this first).

Or should I just cancel my plans with ActivityPub and wait until Fediverse software supports IndieWeb technologies? :thinking_face:
