We're experimenting with Zap as a federated social network client for the Ellijay Makerspace. So far, I find it to be a needlessly confused onboarding, and I miss Mastodon's welcome/getting started tutorial.
Otherwise, the software itself seems fine? It does the stuff I'd expect from an attempt to implement facebook on activitypub, which is to say that it has all the drawbacks of each? We'll see if it also has all the benefits of each as the time comes.
I appreciate the lack of apparent character limit. Let's add some multimedia!
Here's a photo of the building that will house our makerspace, from a newspaper, from some time in the 70s:
And here is a tour of Toylanta 2021, partially shot on my phone, but mostly shot on a camera from the 70s!
