I think #Path was my all time favorite app once. Didn’t use it for years now due to personal reasons and since it changed over the years. Now it’s shutting down and it makes me sad. No other app ever managed to deliver the feeling of “home” for me, Path once did. Goodbye and thanks for all the memories 👋😢 // at least it was not sold to fb

What if there existed a fediverse (#mastodon, #pleroma, etc) tool that looks through your follows and creates a visualization of who you followed, when, and who you subsequently followed if you likely heard of them from a previous follow.

A similar idea, a visualization of your follows, and how many of them follow each other. Reminiscent of #mastoview by @Luca

🎂 Everyone please say *HAPPY BIRTHDAY* to @Luca who's turning 30 today! Let's see how social this place really is and boost this thing 😀 🙌 #hpybdy #luca30 #spreadsomelove

Anlässlich meines 30ten Geburtstags einen Newsletter versandt.

(Ich glaube, ich wechsle zu tinyletter zurück. Oder das nächste Mal Revue probieren.)

The other day, I started wondering whose toots I've favorited most often—mostly as a "scientific" way to figure out who to feature on my profile.

One weekend-coding project later, and I can now share an app with all of you: the Tool for Tabulating Thirty Top Tooters (#t5, for short).

It scans all the toots you've every favorited and ranks the top thrifty people who you've favorited most often. It's #freeSoftware and I hope you all enjoy!


Wieviel Liebe ich in diesen Teaser gesteckt hab, hat leider auch keine Sau interessiert

While I love , I always have troubles using (Express Template Engine).

If you are interested in data-driven storytelling, this book might be worth a look (free for another week) — I worked on a pattern collection together with a few other folks, which is available at

I made a #WirSindMehr Livestream microsite to share the video without stupid related suggestions:

Just opened a new GitHub issue on Mastodon: Allow moderation through API.

My hope is that this can increase the effectiveness of moderators, which could help them better protect users against mobbing, harassment, or other bad acts.

@kev@mike @nolan @SuperFloppies (This could be another item for your list)

I made a flow chart of which #Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

“Disable replies” feature

It's like an enforced :dont_at_me:, basically!

"If someone is posting something personal/controversial/etc in order shoutout/vent/etc about without the aim of starting a conversation, it could be useful."

If you're into it and you have a Github account, go add your 👍. If you don't have a Github account, give it a boost. ✨

(This is not one of my feature requests, just one that I liked.)

#mastodon #meta #github

Idea: :dont_at_me: as a permissions level for a post.

Can still be boosted and favorited, but servers should prevent replying, and a server implementing this will reject any incoming replies.

Show more is an open social platform for creative people, especially anyone in sciArt, data, visualization, creative coding, and related arts and research. English is the common language of the instance.
