I decided to start sharing parts of #fediQuest as they become mature.
Today, I am releasing a #Golang library for decoding ActivityStreams 2.0 objects into native Go objects and also for encoding Go objects into ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON objects.
The usage is your typical Go Marshal/Unmarshal, (see tests for examples).
The license is copyleft (AGPLv3).
Your feedback (and a star) are welcome :-)

I think the biggest problem is that large non-profits are run exactly like large corps these days and so they 'need' engagement metrics, analytics etc.
That's one thing Anand Giridharadas is right about, that today's 'activists' have been willfully misled by capitalism to believe that they can both, get its spoils, (previously only attainable by commercial tycoons), and do good work
I mean, we are already sharing compute resources between our fediverse instances with little to no accountability as to quotas or resource management between us. if we formalized and generalized the setup, even in small pockets, there could be some very cool knock-on effects I'd suspect.
there's part of my brain that says that the federated distributed MMO that @cwebber is working toward (and beyond) and the underlying tech will also add some interesting dynamics into the possibilities here - what happens when we start to share secure object capabilities with each other that allow for some subset of arbitrary computation rather than something much more limited in application and scope?
So, who had "SCO Lawsuit vs. Linux returns" on their "plagues that will return" bingo card?
I'm using https://raindrop.io to manage my bookmarks since years now, through several browsers and devices, and I'm so happy with it, would recommend!
the "androids are taking our jobs" sci-fi trope is honestly one of the darkest, because the entire point of automation is to make it so that nobody has to work anymore if they don't want to. In literally any non-oligarchical society, the automatically generated resources would be distributed and everyone would be happy.
the idea that a population would be so brainwashed that they want more work and less automation, instead of more automation and much more universal basic income, is so deeply and fundamentally disturbing, yet it's already happening
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but if you're doing any home rewiring or have the walls open for some reason, might be a good idea to install some Cat6 cable or maybe even terminated optical cable
It's a good opportunity to have data connectivity in a new area and you can even install IP cameras at some point if you have any spare terminals
Wireless is great for a lot of things, but if speed and lack of interference are important, go with wired
There are lots of DIY tutorials too
Last thing I'd say on RMS and this is specifically for people who fancy themselves on any kind of left is that he's at least there on most of the issues, like he agrees with you, seriously check his political notes and writings if you want.
Meanwhile Wikipedia has been getting much praise here yet it;s founder is a libertarian of the free market variety who actively attacks people who think some basics should be off the table on Twitter.
Wiki articles on many issues have a right slant.
