In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first ever Request for Comments (RFC), I'm doing a project where I read the first 365 IETF RFCs in 2019.
Don't know what an RFC is or why I'm doing this? The explanatory post is up! https://write.as/365-rfcs/365-ietf-rfcs-a-50th-anniversary-dive
You can subscribe via your ActivityPub client of choice by following @365-rfcs
@darius omg this is great!
i absolutely love the story of what i believe is #1: https://books.google.com/books?id=RLKxSvCBQZcC&pg=PA144&lpg=PA144&dq=rfc+written+in+a+bathroom&source=bl&ots=1Mmj5QcoJa&sig=hYvHovjRVQa9C-RuVOPhczqcQVo&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAmoVChMIgNzv99eQxwIVgo8-Ch30SAqt#v=onepage&q=rfc%20written%20in%20a%20bathroom&f=false
I wrote about it here https://sts10.github.io/2015/08/04/where-wizards-stay-up-late.html
@schlink oh awesome, I'll definitely cite this tomorrow
@darius This is neat!
Follow request sent :)
@darius Note that GNU Social and Mastodon <= 2.6.1 cannot follow accounts with a dash in the name.
@bortzmeyer ah that's too bad, I unfortunately don't get to choose my username on write.as (it's determined by the blog title)
@darius That's the state of mess in the ActivityPub world: nothing is really standardized.
@darius Yes, it works, thanks. (I just had to enter the address in Mastodon search bar: clicking on "@365rfcs" does not display the profile but a Web page).
@bortzmeyer yup, that's why the page says "Put the username above into your user search and you should be able to find this feed and subscribe!" -- I haven't figured out how to fix this on all platforms otherwise
@darius This is great!!!
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
