@prinzpiuz I'm biased, since it's my project, but I run the vidcommons.org instance, which is filled to the brim with Creative Commons and Public Domain media. It's intended to serve as a "starter pack" of sorts for new instances that want to populate their listings with content that's been curated and vetted.

@autogestion @blog It's actually more of a slogan or a motto than anything else. In a sense, distribution here refers to both distributing free technologies, and distributing messages in an open network. While you're right that a federated network isn't strictly distributed in a DNS-agnostic P2P sense, the scattering of messages across many instances is technically still applicable.

Hmm, I seem to be able to follow @feneas on Mastodon, but not Pleroma...
@jalcine nice! I'm thinking of joining soon. 😃
I opened an issue where people can give feedback and discuss the API so that we can make sure it will meet the needs of Fediverse developers. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please contribute to the discussion:
Wow. Seeing @sir take that step to be funded solely for FL/OSS work is inspiring! I do hope they write about the mechanics (https://drewdevault.com/2019/01/15/Im-doing-FOSS-full-time.html highlights their announcement). Congrats!
