you got me 😉
I don’t use my account on twtxt.net although I like the content that is found there.

Yeah, Yarn as a piece of software is really nice, I’ve said that a few times before.

Although technology is only a piece of the puzzle.
As a community/ecosystem is perhaps too niche. I agree that ‘social platforms’ don’t need to be meaningful, perhaps they don’t even need to be useful.
We are sharing time and words here, so that’s good by itself.

In-reply-to » Is Yarn.social dead or just too niche? (uyrrria) 🧐

Well, I don’t use Yarn/Twtxt.net anymore, although I read the homepage a few times a week to catchup on anything interesting.

Nowadays I barely twt from my PHP instance. I got to say that is more “convenient” reading from twtxt.net that on my instance.

My current feeling is that is too niche to find something interesting, being about personal growth, professional or even entertaining. There is not enough people and/or interesting topics to be engaged on. The network effect of people making content is missing IMO. Although I have a similar feeling of any other microblogging, it’s too superficial to have a meaningful conversation.
Sadly in this ecosystem I’ve found no one twting on Spanish, and having conversations in English is not so easy to me.

And about local communities, I tried to invite friends and colleagues, but no one created their instance or joined to Yarn. Even the local Mastodon instance has 3 members (myself included), so I think creating a hipster microblogging is not as easy as looked at the start.

It’s again a decision between the involved time and the ‘reward’ at the end. If we are not getting good emotions or something bigger that ourselves, feels like ‘not worthy’ to belong.

In-reply-to » Bitwarden is truly excellent. Highly recommend

Indeed, BitWarden works nice as a credentials manager, and I’m quite happy with the implementation of Passkeys.

Sadly my old Android 9 is not compatible with the mobile app, although I use the web for that case.
That said, that’s what I’ve been using for years and I can’t find a reason to try another (as usually happens with these tools)

I’d suggest of self-host or trying a public instance of Vaultwarden like https://passwd.hostux.net

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” ― L.P. Jacks
