There is also much to be done in the centralization space; this is why after ActivityPub was released, I decided to turn my work to fill in the remaining pieces with @spritelyproject.

I'm optimistic we can build a better future and get it out there.

Let's do so together.

There's good reason to be concerned about gatekeepers to our communication, so 16 times in 6 pages isn't so surprising.

Yet, we've *built* alternatives to gatekeeping social networks across ActivityPub and other fediverse projects... how many times are those mentioned? Not once.

Early dawn light as I’m waiting for the oven to heat up for a morning bake.

We made a very spring-like focaccia today. I made the bread and my wife decorated it with fresh vegetables from the farmer’s market before it went into the oven.

Looked great and tasted even better. 😋

This is Carl. He likes to be on human eye level. If he's perched on something when I walk past, I make sure to headbunt him, which he enjoys greatly - so much so that he waits at the top of the basement stairs, at a point where we knows I'll butt him on the way past.

All cats are ultimately a mystery but I'm slowly decoding his body language, and there are wishes he expresses by moving his head. The latest I've decoded is that a forward-and-downward head motion is instructive!

When he's at eye level and enjoying headpats, his head is upright and leaning into the stroke. Sometimes he would duck his head - I took this to mean "Pet somewhere else" or maybe "enough petting," but I mimicked him one day the other week and he PUT HIS PAW ATOP MY HEAD AND STROKED MY HAIR, just like I stroke his head!

So this doesn't mean "No more pets," it means "Now please move your head like this so I can reach to pet you." I've never had a cat do this before.
