Kinda sad to read that my favorite Diaspora pod is probably about to shut down but tbf I’m surprised how long it lasted. There’s a reason that ppl flock to Mastodon / ActivityPub instead. Less technical and way better UX to begin with.
As for myself I became my own Hub by following the #IndieWeb principles:
Losing this pod means basically I’ll have to re-syndicate my content somewhere else again (if I bother at all). A lesson learnt thanks to G+, Geocities and yeah – even Diaspora and even with pubsubhubbub that is basically a nice idea.
Wishing it’s admin all the best for his next project if the decision is pulling the plug.
