Is there an app that includes most of the popular corners of the 'Fediverse'?
I'm assuming, out of all the Activity-Pub connected 'Fediverse', there are a handful of instances that get the most activity. That being assumed, is there an app (mobile and otherwise) that, functionally, includes most of these instances? For example, is there an app that can seamlessly handle Mastodon, Lemmy, Friendica, Hubzilla, Peertube, etc?

Any PeerTube instance that isn't alt-right?
I tried to search for them but it difficult as there quiet a lot of them that have alt-right videos. Also I'm not multilingual and only know English which few instance are a different language. Videos I like watching: - - Linux - FOSS review/showcase - Gaming (such as Fallout NV, Minecraft, Resident Evil etc.) - Online Privacy - Anything related to being queer

Is chatGPT going to end more than 20 years of Google control over search engines?
chatGPT recently started making it loud, that way Microsoft rushed to pour $10 billion into it, so with this new model, are we going to witness the end of Google control over the way we search?

How do you feel about this personal e-mail format?
Let's say as an example that my full name is Robert Frankel If I purchase the domain `nkel.com` and use that to create my custom e-mail: `RobertFr@nkel.com` And then use this as my personal e-mail in a professional setting (resume, contact e-mail, business card, etc..). Do you think this would be perceived as unprofessional and silly in a negative way, and even confusing to some? Or do you think most people would understand it right away and think of it in a net positive way - perhaps a bit silly, but memorable. Don't worry about whether the e-mail will be filtered as spam, I am curious about how it is perceived. I am asking because I have a domain like this that I use for private personal stuff, and I wonder whether it would be a good or bad idea to use that e-mail when applying for jobs, as a small extra detail to stand out 😁

Do you think that Reddit will go the same way Digg did?
Ever since Elon bought Twitter, it caused mass exodus to Fediverse and companies have launched their own Mastodon instances. I am an ex-redditor and I joined Lemmy recently. Do you think Reddit will go the same way Digg did? PS: I was permanently suspended from Reddit for unspecified harassment.

Where would one find a good wired mouse in 2023?
Hello lemmy, I'm looking to replace my mouse and get a new one. Preferably wired, I don't really like the bluetooth mice. Not looking for extra buttons or anything, just a basic Mouse that does the clicks and scrolls.

Lemmy and Hashtags
Does Lemmy currently use hashtags in any way? I'm assuming it doesn't since they don't show up in the UI anywhere. But while thinking about [non-lemmy software posting to lemmy communities](https://lemmy.ml/post/705776), I was wondering how lemmy would use hashtags. My suggestion would be for lemmy to handle hashtags in a similar way to current microblogging software, by putting them in the `tag` field and allow lemmy users to add #hashtags to their posts. [Lobsters](https://lobste.rs) displays tags beside post titles (though these tags are admin controlled I think). It seems like there is a maximum of 2 tags, which I think would be a reasonable limit for lemmy to display too. The UI could display the tags as badges, with some affordance to view any additional tags, and clicking a tag would show other posts with that tag. As for why, I think tags on lemmy would serve two main purposes: 1. They would enable better discoverability on non-lemmy software where hashtags are the main topical grouping mechanism right now. 1. While lemmy uses communities for topical grouping, some posts might fit into multiple categories, even unrelated categories. Crossposting sort of solves this, but crossposting can be considered spammy if it's done too much. And, on lemmy, crossposting creates another post which fractures the conversation. This may be desirable sometimes, but a poster may also prefer to keep all the conversation in one spot.
