Articles from around the web that I find interesting.

good news everyone!

Great news everyone! DJRobzilla Dot Net now supports the Activity Pub protocol. You can now follow from any ActivityPub enabled social media site like Mastodon, PixelFed, etc.

Why does ActivityPub matter?

Well, mostly because it helps us all move away from centralized social media platforms like Facebook and X. Platforms where the primary customer is advertisers and not regular people like you and me. Platforms where you and I are the Product.

Activity Pub is a different paradigm of social media. Instead of one monolithic corporation owning and controlling the entire network, ownership of the network is distributed across many “instances” like the one is parked on:

How does it work?

ActivityPub works a little differently to what you might be used to with traditional social media, and although it takes some adjusting I promise the net benefit for you, me and us as a society is worth the trouble. You see, when you post on an ActivityPub supported app like Mastodon, you aren’t just posting to Mastodon. You are posting to every site or app that uses the ActivityPub protocol. It’ s an open source protocol for interactive social media driven apps and websites.

racoons love activitypub too

To keep it simple: You know how when you post to Facebook it asks you if you want to also post to Instagram and vice versa? This is like that, but automatic and across all ActivityPub apps, not just the ones that Zuck owns.

Who owns it?

Thats the best part. No one does. It’s an open source protocol designed to be censorship resistant and distributed so some Mr. Money Bags investor cant come along and ruin the party for everyone else.

twitter sucks now

This is how we take back the web from the private interests and vulture capitalists. One website at a time. Get the revolution started and follow my Mastodon account for more music, tech news and updates.

Anyway, I have some new beats cooking in the oven so keep your eyes on this blog cause I’mma be posting ALOT more! I can’t wait for you to hear what I’ve been working on. Stay up and peep DJ Robzilla’s Dojo for more dope tunes!
