Invest more in your own health -- all levels and systems. That's my advice.

Thanks everyone. The original post was made in response to some very vague criticism of ActivityPub made in the ostatus-sphere that wasn't concrete enough for me to reply to. But the advice to take care of my health and well being is well taken... I haven't been doing it, and the stress has been affecting me. I'll try to do better, and I appreciate everyone being so supportive.

I understand if as an editor you feel personally attached to the spec, but it grew from pre-existing work and from a group process, and it looks the way it does for reasons. Everybody wants Perfect (and means a different thing), but a standard at all is a good start.

Maybe some people want it to be SSB/Patchwork, some want it to be Zot and some want it to be Diaspora*, but those things already exist. This is a new thing with great overlap, but with its own background in a set of use cases and forces.

AP is incomplete, in particular when it comes to privacy and message integrity. Given the new breathing room, maybe that can be addressed better. By everyone interested. ❌ at 2017-06-26T00:01:36Z

Ah. Found the concrete instance of your vague reference.

I'll add to the vague meta-posting that not everyone has the same goals, perspective and interests as everyone else, and some people are quite set in their view on things, based on what has worked or not worked for them personally, and what they're invested in. ❌ at 2017-06-26T01:57:27Z
