I discovered that BookWyrm is built on Django (3.2). Immediately felt excited, since I could learn and grow by contributing and pushing the ActivityPub ecosystem forward. Already have 2 or 3 issues open…including a loose commitment to close one (simple) issue myself “in a few days.”
A lesser known fact is that GoodReads is owned by Amazon. I was surprised when I found out. Anyone I tell is surprised, too. So far, anyway. I want no part in this. GoodReads is just a nice to have — far from essential. BookWyrm is the future.
I should seek therapy. Why am I doing this? Prioritizing the good of the world before my own (sacrificial)? Validation? Some weird obsession I don’t understand? Lack of community nearby and attempts to find it online? Purely a rush in the head?
Side note: find me on BookWyrm. 🙂
