semi-regular reminder: the #Firefox and Chrome add-on Bypass Paywalls lets you easily get past the article-hiding nag screens on numerous major media websites, even WSJ
both mozilla and google rudely delisted it from their add-on sites so you have to get it from the author's github:
I facilitated a #TalkPayIRL discussion at @DevOpsDaysDC@twitter.com. The lowest paid developer in the room just accepted a position wherein their salary is 65% higher. Thank you to the amazing #DevOps community for the support and @firstname.lastname@example.org for the process. https://medium.com/@jpaulreed/talking-pay-in-the-public-square-70e588f54c8 1/2

In my quest to build an #ActivityPub based simple, no-frills bulletin board / forum system, I've gone ahead and pushed up my work-in-progress #golang ActivityPub single server framework: apcore. It has no README (yet) and still has a lot left TODO.
I hope to use it in the future to launch multiple small ActivityPub applications leveraging common serving, storing, and moderation features. But new #ActivityStreams vocabulary can be readily innovated upon.
