I created this "Maslow's hierarchy of jobs" about 20 years go. Iv'e found to be good guide for when was time to move on (or stay). If you're failing at one or more of the lower 5 levels (pay not likely to continue, getting paid but nobody cares what you do) might be time to find a more productive gig.

You probably won't see this from HR in goals setting and performance management sessions.

The FOSS Mastodon/Friendica/PixelFed/Pleroma app Fedilab and the FOSS PeerTube app TubeLab now have a new combined official account. You can follow them both at:

#FediTips #Fediverse #MastoTips #Follows #Following

As requested (by a.o. @lxzio and @zleap ) we started with a place to discuss ideas, features and concepts:

The main features for Flockingbird are there now. More are following soon.

Feel free to drop your ideas, thoughts, ideas in either new tickets or as comments on the existing.

If comments don't work, we might move it to a wiki instead; this is new for us too.

Obviously a PM or mention on mastodon also works if you have feedback or ideas.

@flockingbird yes I did mean a way to get pubic opinions. It doesn't matter if its GH issues. it just need to be a place where people can discuss.

@lxzio code is at (mirrored to if you don't want github).

Code is Proof of Concept phase.

We're not familiar with RFCs but it sounds a bit too rigid and overhead-ed for the current phase.

Would issues with proper tags on GH work too? Because if so, we can move/rewrite some todo's from our internal docs to public issues that can gather feedback.

"In the fediverse, an instance is a community. A group." On Flockingbird and "groups".

repost, because we experienced some downtime on fediverse blog.

If someone posts something that breaks your instance's rules, you can report them to your instance admin. The admin will then decide what action to take, such as a warning or a ban.

Click on the "..." underneath the message you want to report, select "Report", make sure at least one message is selected and click "Submit".

If they are from another instance, there's also an option to report the person to their own instance admin too, who can delete the account.

BTW, today we released #PeerTube v3, complete with p2p live streaming features and a behind-the-scene short film.

Read more about it on our blog (and please share 😉)

In the fediverse, an instance is a community. A group.

Federation offers a perfect model to "be part of one or more groups".

Are you interested in a federated alternative to Goodreads that doesn't use Amazon?

because I'm making a federated alternative to Goodreads that doesn't use Amazon

Via Show HN: I made an alternative platform for professional profiles -

Very interesting. Beautiful and ispirational for flockingbird.

The challenge in these times of remote interaction is keeping up with the professional contacts.

I hope that keeping connected in #2021 will improve tremendously with better alternatives that keep me actually engaged.

Instead of endless scrolling & a stream of attention seeking plugs, I look forward to have quality correspondence.

I bet on the promising & improving #floss tools to take off.

Will @flockingbird come off the ground?!

@flockingbird Doubt this would support the way I used LinkedIn: make connections and look them up when following up. Very common.m

I often land in new groups/contexts with no connections yet and this approach would make finding the first connection very very hard.

Connecting should be super lightweight, discovery easy. A public (slow?) search spanning many many instances might help? Perhaps allow many 'local' contexts (eg: a conference, organisation or topic) rather than one?
