I really wanted to publish this week's @librelounge but I'm in Israel for the week (landed earlier today) and I won't be able to edit the show by Saturday. I'm really sorry all, but I will try to get next week's out on time if I can find the time.
Been running the #Feneas server on 3 for a while, no problems 🤘
RT @matrix: Folks, finally it's here. Synapse 0.34.0 - Python 3 recommended for production. This is a big one, with huge improvements in CPU and RAM usage. Thanks for everyone that helped us test it. https://matrix.org/blog/2018/12/20/synapse-0-34-0-released/
Traveling today and tomorrow so won't have time to release the latest episode of @librelounge but stay tuned!

I've made a really simple tool for searching your outbox.json (Mastodon archive) file. It's all browser-based and all data stays on your computer — it's not uploaded to the cloud!
There's lots of room for additional features so feel free to suggest some! 💚
In systems I wrote, it was common for me to write templated configuration where one system would configure another. An example might be for a load balancer to know which application servers to check the health for. I would write the logic but the systems wrote the configuration for each other.
#Inventaire is an open source online book inventory site, where you can keep track of your collection, share books with others and create your own libraries for groups.
It uses open data site Wikidata to fetch details of your books, so that they're easier to catalogue and share.
The site is here:

@cwebber @jaywink @feld (last one) ActivityPub is suffering from centralization a little, but people are "getting it". And I've begun to wonder if the way we've been thinking about AP servers has been wrong. Programs that try to "do everything" like Osasa are cool, but inevitably someone does one aspect better. Maybe being able to have more flexible clients associated with a feed will be a better long term solution.
@cwebber @jaywink @feld I agree that losing Google Reader sucked, but I don't think it impacted RSS much. And we're seeing newer projects pick up the idea of Google Reader (some using RSS, others not).
The problem is when we think about the protocol as the thing we care about, rather than the way people use it.
NNTP was a cool protocol, but it's not used much anymore in comparison to other communication platforms.
@cwebber @jaywink @feld I'd only agree with you Chris if I thought that this was a strategy. Maybe we'd call it "Adopt, Attract, Abandon", with the goal of killing off a standard by getting people to adopt their client.
I agree that Google dealt a death blow to XMPP but OTOH XMPP was not super popular outside of geeks without it. What Google's implementation did was highlight the bad experience of using XMPP without them and then we had no good alternatives.
