I managed to get my grubby little mitts on an invite to Bluesky (thanks, Ryan!) and it’s… OK, I guess. I’m not going to judge it too harshly just yet—it’s still very much a beta—but I can’t really wrap my head around why they’re inventing another protocol for federation when ActivityPub exists. And the app icon kinda sucks; it’s not very iOS-y. But I do like the the way they do the domain-as-user-handle thing. Will be interesting to watch this one evolve.
