Readers, I am happy to announce that Letters Blogatory is now using ActivityPub, the protocol that powers Mastodon and the rest of the Fediverse. The Fediverse is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to me it is a way of microblogging, similar to Twitter, except that there is no algorithm showing me things I don’t want to read, and there is no single enormous entity that everyone has to join in order to participate. Instead, there are a lot of servers, some large and some small, each with its own rules and vibe, but you can follow someone on any server.
You may already be following me at federate.social (@tedfolkman), where I cross-post articles from Letters Blogatory but also post about Boston, cats, and whatever else I like. I’d like to invite you now to follow me at lettersblogatory.com (@tfolkman), where posts from Letters Blogatory should now automatically appear.#lawfedi #meta
