@unascribed Yeah that's absolutely fair, putting just a summary within content_* is perfectly valid IMO 😌

@unascribed But it's also fair to continue doing what you do now, this is probably the approach that would be used by many sites that want their actual pages visited for, I dunno, ads or analytics (not implying you do either)

@unascribed sorry for late reply, but this was with NetNewsWire 5.0, whose author is Brett Simmons, one of the JSON Feed spec coauthors; NNW doesn't pick up any entries which don't have a content property. An option to avoid the feed getting overly large is truncating it at entry boundary when it passes a certain size. I helped implement this here, for example: github.com/kbrsh/sold/commit/b

@unascribed Hey, so I tried subscribing to your site and apparently unascribed.com's JSON Feed doesn't validate because at least one of `content_text` or `content_html` must be present on `items[]` (it's not a problem as I can just subscribe to the Atom feed but just FYI)

@unascribed appears you have an opinion on Mastodon vs. Pleroma? I'm not particularly well-versed in the fediverse but I'd love to learn more

@unascribed It's probably stored encrypted (knowing Protonmail), but I didn't take any particular action to encrypt it beyond what my mail server does in transit :/

@unascribed Sorry to break it to you, but I don't think it was

XMPP is thus far the only use of XML that I can approve, apart from document markup. XMPP makes XML shine like nothing else has.

Perhaps rightly so, but I'm of the rare opinion that XMPP is actually a beautiful protocol. Which makes it all the more sad.

For all practical intents and purposes, XMPP is truly dead, and it will take a lot of effort to revive it, effort that nobody is going to put into XMPP instead of, say, Matrix or some fully decentralized alternative.

This is on my mind because I've been reading ~4y old discussions about the crash of XMPP. Though it doesn't seem to be coming back, there is a small yet vibrant community around it.

Lately it seems that a lot of power has been ceded to centralized stuff, but perhaps it's time some ground was to be regained.

The web is ultimately about holding power. It's either held by individuals or corporations.

Alternatively, try searching for any app and look through the results which aren't an exact match. They devolve quickly.

Ever tried to simply browse Play Store?

It's really bad. Just don't.
