Fedivision 2024

Wrapup from Fedivision 2024, the first time I really paid attention. My impressions, speculation about how it could grow, and my suggestion for a voting system that can handle so many entries.

Censorship on Bluesky

Bluesky has been in the news. They’ve opened to the public, removing their invitation system. But I want to talk about censorship. Specifically: Bluesky actually has two censorship regimes, but they only talk about one. The second censorship regime arrogates decisions about speech to a handful of Americans, away from democratic government. I don’t want to fall into that trap, again.
