How can I improve the fediverse.info people directory?

I have a few ideas:

- Allow registration via statuses that contain hashtag topics so you don't need to pollute your bio

- User avatars (held off on this as it would require moderation)

- Topic intersection (group results by multiple topics)

- Filter by instance/domain

- Use localStorage to keep track of profiles you seen to show fresher results

Any more? Boosts appreciated! #fediverseInfo #activitypub

This is one of the most spectacular sunsets I ever saw while working at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

The Atacama Desert is extremely dry, but clouds do show up sometimes. That day there were several dark clouds releasing very light rain that vaporised before reaching the ground. These wispy veils (called "virga") were lit by the golden sunset light, creating a lovely contrast with the blue sky above.

Hi cycling people :) I installed and maintain a free bicycle repair station on a cycle lane near were we live (rural Denmark).

Am always interested in what cycling service infrastructure is available elsewhere, so if you have something: share it here! :-)

"Did you know a teleporter does not send the atoms your body is made of, only how you are put together?"
"Yeah! You are a completely new person when you arrive."
"That's why I'm not using them."
"Are you kidding? That's why I use them!"
