Who are the people behind ActivityPub specification? https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/
What was their motivation to come up with such a cool idea?
The proceedings of the conference I've submitted a paper to are available online at http://ebooks.iospress.nl/volume/human-language-technologies-the-baltic-perspective-proceedings-of-the-eighth-international-conference-baltic-hlt-2018
My papers describes an attempt of building a multilingual corpus. It's also available at https://zenodo.org/record/1317574 together with the data.
It has been a year since I've got my car. It had 135k miles when I got it. In a year I rode 13k without major issues. I had to fix quite a few things to pass the state inspection, change tires, so the service expense constitutes a half of my spending. A quarter is insurance and registration taxes. A fifth is gas. It looks that the case prices are going up, but that could be also a seasonal thing. What I didn't expect is such a big variance in price between different stations and states.
Found an interesting spam/scam scheme today:
- Attacker posts their link that redirects to a legit news article
- Twitter resolves the redirect to news article
- Twitter hides link from Tweet and displays Twitter Card with news domain
- Attacker changes redirect to spam site
The Tweet now displays a legit looking Twitter Card with the news website domain, but actually goes to the scammer.
We've got more big news.

Since some people are talking about the “death of the URL” … again … it felt like the right time to re-post something I wrote 2 years ag on the topic https://medium.com/@torgo/in-defense-of-the-url-adbec59c7cf4 including a link to research that seems to indicate people DO know what URLs are.
In my opinion, Facebook and Twitter took a step back by taking the moderator role away from their users and assigning it to algorithms, social network employees. Yes, you can hide things, so they are not shown to you, but that will not change the social norms in the community.
Mastodon and other ActivityPub implementations can shine in this respect by giving their users the tools not only to hide content but also expressing the social norms.
I'm working on a blog post called "The case for trying Mastodon, a decentralized social network."
Got a community question for y'all: as far as topic-centric instances go, what happens if a user posts mostly general stuff? Or rarely posts about the instances topic?
Do they get a warning/kick from the admin? Is it a sort of 'Mastodon faux pax' that instances deal with in their own way? Have you seen cases of any of this happen?
The rest of the article is great. I recommend it to everyone on the fediverse, not only to people who are interested in codeswitching. The article is available at http://www.languageatinternet.org/articles/2011/Paolillo The whole journal worth checking as well.
The example he provides also illustrates that not much progress has been made towards respectful communication.
Here is the part of the article in a better quality.
Also the move to synchronous conversation (IRC) from asynchronous (email) could be explained by a speculation that in late 2000s companies needed to access/store lots of data to train their systems. Now there is so much data, that there is no need to store it, training systems on a stream (that is seeing an instance once) is enough. Thus amove to self destroing emails and stories.
