Do you want to browse trending news items and trending links on Mastodon? Here's how to do it:

📱 If you're using the official app, click the magnifying glass 🔍 icon at the bottom and then select the "News" tab at the top.

💻 If you're logged in through your server's website, click the # Explore link at the right of the screen, then the "News" tab at the top.

Third party apps may have a different kind of interface to access this feature.

Is there a way to see what posts are taking about which news item? I've tried to search the url and no posts come up.
Colby mastodon (AP)
Question: what is the algorithm that determines the “Posts” that show up under #Explore? Where can I find info on that? I like to browse that section but notice it often groups toots by topic, causing me to conclude there’s an algorithm at work that’s more complicated than “most tooted in last hour”.

@JaneinNJ Yeah, but what about wishful limerick thinking? LOL!

(Actually I'm a retired lawyer, so I'm no fan of magical thinking. But bitching via a limerick? Why not?)

Doh! It’s midnight here and I just walked in from a long and absorbing evening in a Broadway theater. I am so tired that I didn’t even realize I was looking at a limerick. 🤣

@JaneinNJ LOL!

What did you see? Anything you'd recommend? I live in NYC and try to get to see good plays when I can.
(((JaneinNJ))) mastodon (AP)
Husband & I were given a pair of tix to Sweeney Todd that we never would have bought bc they are so expensive. Would recommend if you’re a Sondheim fan. J. Groban was, surprisingly to us, good; sadly, Annaleigh Ashford’s voice doesn’t have the heft to sing Mrs. Lovett and, even with miking, she was hard to hear. Guy in Victor Garber role wasn’t great but, like Groban, got applause and cheers when he entered, so was obviously cast to bring in younger people. 1/
(((JaneinNJ))) mastodon (AP)
The rest of the vocal work is superb and they are using a full orchestra with Jonathan Tunick’s original orchestrations. Physical production was good; barber chair got a lot of laughs. There’s some woo-woo choreography for the chorus, I guess designed to hold visual attention, that was mostly distracting. But the luxury of hearing the score sung mostly well, accompanied by that lush orchestra, was sublime.
Madeleine Begun Kane mastodon (AP)
@JaneinNJ Thanks for the review! What a shame about Ashford's voice. I'm glad you could still enjoy other aspects of the show.

Alas, hiring popular actresses for Broadway plays/shows, who are great on film or tv but can't project, has become all too common. (I guess it's the only way they can sell tickets at such hefty prices.) Years ago, we saw an otherwise great production of Cabaret which starred Michelle Williams. Couldn't hear her at all! (But Allan Cumming was great!!!)
(((JaneinNJ))) mastodon (AP)
Actually, Ashford has theatre chops. Either the sound team wasn’t doing its job or despite her talent she was miscast as a singer here. Or both.

This is more about the software that runs the internet, that companies run it with - be they ginourmous or small. Check this out:

Across the internet, there's a host of niche communities on message boards and web forums, using platforms such as phpBB and its various competitors.

Is there scope to get these communities on the Fediverse?

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been trying out Lemmy ( ), which is basically a Reddit-like platform on the Fediverse. (For those reading this on Mastodon, this post is actually a reply to a post on Lemmy, meaning you can read it on Lemmy, on Mastodon, or elsewhere!)

It's shown me that the concept of a Fediverse -connected discussion forum certainly can work.

So is there scope to either add ActivityPub to any existing message board software platforms?

Alternatively, is there scope to develop a fediverse-connected general purpose message board platform?

Is anyone working on it?

> Is anyone working on it?

Yes. Momentarily on development hiatus, but I develop a federated link aggregator similar to HN, and old reddit:

@tchambers @atomicpoet @LemmyDev
Helge bovine (AP)
So by messing around on I failed at replying and when I tried to fetch the replies collection via
http accept:application/json

I get a fantastic go stack trace encoded in json-ld. It makes me happy and I thought I share.
marius mastodon (AP)
that's a dev environment, if the site is set up as a "live" one the stack gets removed, you only get the top error displayed.

PS. Everything is a very large mess right now when it comes to brutalinks because alternative development done to the underlying ActivityPub stack (the server) have messed the assumptions that it used to work with. @tchambers @atomicpoet @LemmyDev
I saw somewhere that Discourse is maybe planning or starting work on adding ActivityPub support somehow.
John Robinson mastodon (AP)
For one joyous minute I thought you were talking about the Pub!
Witcraft (Hubzilla) hubzilla (via ActivityPub)
I thought the LemmyBB UI was the perfect solution to this. But what I am missing in Lemmy (vs. Reddit) is a root, or an aggregated search for public Lemmy communities. I understand that private groups would have to be excluded (or, if the community should be found, but membership is moderated, then make the address searcheable, but the content access-controlled).

Currently, it seems that I have to search each single public instance from the Lemmy directory manually in order to find and add a community to my personal forum home view (?). I do not see the benefit in this, so I prefer to read and post to Lemmy communities from Hubzilla (I just add them as a connection, or "follow them" in Masto speak). Actually, I can even search Hubzilla's Zot network for group channels on other instances (like communities), without leaving my own instance. But unfortunately not Lemmy's AP network. But I cannot do this from Lemmy or LemmyBB, either.

Looking from ground level upward along the trunk of a tall tree. There are green leaves filling most of the frame, with some glimpses of strong sunlight filtering through on the left-hand side, where the sun sits unseen Close up of a Gazania flower. The centre is bright yellow, the banded petals looking like sunbeams radiating out in yellow with red stripes. There's a darker maroon band running near the base of the petals, accentuating the centre of the flower
Closeup of a geranium (pelargonium) flower. The petals are orangey-red, with white edges and white near the centre. The stamens are white with the same orangey-red colour on the anthers. Strong sunshine glistens off the petals, and casts soft shadows Closeup of a globe artichoke flower. Bright mauve spikes with pollen-covered bases all rising toward the sunlight...

As someone who was very interested in racial equity in education when I attended law school (and before) and took every course I could on the subject, and also did volunteer work in public schools, I am quite confident in saying that critical race theory is not being taught at all in K-12.

In fact, it would be almost impossible to teach it in K-12, as the discipline is PhD-level critical textual analysis.

The Far Right Is Calling For Bloody ‘Civil War’ After Trump’s Indictment

“None of this will stop unless there is blood in the streets,” one Trump supporter wrote.

Under a post with a photo of Bragg, another user commented: “There once was a time when he would have been lynched for much less.”

Republicans were “not outraged by Trump’s attempt to overturn a Democratic election…, by the violence of January 6, by an illegal phone call to the Georgia Secretary of State,… to Vlodomir Zelinsky, multiple credible accounts of sexual harassment and rape, …sexist, bigoted…” it goes on.

But they’re outraged by this.
Here’s why we shouldn’t care that they’re outraged.

Reminder: one way masking doesn’t work as well as two way masking and we are still in a “situation” where that understanding is very helpful—lifesaving even—when put into practice.

This is now a pandemic of the vaccinated. Most people dying in the US are vaccinated because the virus has mutated so much. It doesn’t seem dire because it’s just being ignored. But it is still ruining and ending lives all around us.

Thank you if you’re wearing a mask. If you’re not, it’s not to late to (re)start.

This excellent episode of "Factually!" from June last year is the best summary of AI today that I've heard.


@Adam Conover and @Emily M. Bender (she/her) discuss how people are worrying about the wrong things with AI and how not enough people are worrying about the right things.

It's not the future, it's here today. It's not the exciting evils of The Terminator, it's the mundane evils of our already existing corporations.

"On the Dangers of Stochastic Parrots: Can Language Models Be Too Big? 🦜" by @Emily M. Bender (she/her) , @Timnit Gebru , and @mmitchell_ai , possibly the first academic paper with a Unicode emoji in the title, is brought up and discussed.

Because we were looking for more things to do when these clowns decided to write "the letter," and cite our #StochasticParrots paper while saying the opposite of what we write, we @emilymbender Angelina McMillan-Major and @mmitchell_ai wrote a statement in response.

Donald Trump deserves a fair trial followed by a fair life in prison.

This is not getting covered. It is critical, frightening news that affects peoples' lives and deaths. You've said everything you have to say about Trump's indictment until it's unsealed, news folk. Concentrate on something else that matters:
