identi.ca: farewell, for now

I've decided that I'm shutting down the system that I use for posting to identi.ca. Right now I'm using a combination of spigot and pypump to push content to identi.ca. Unfortunately these systems appear to be unmaintained (I still have pull requests open on both projects for bug that occurred when I upgraded to Python 3). That and the engagement that I'm getting over on Mastodon is much higher than the engagement that I'm getting on identi.ca. So I'm going to let my identi.ca account sit for a while.

identi.ca is the longest-running social network that I've been on. I started around 2008 (There's a post about it called spleen venting here). I've enjoyed all of the conversations that I've had on identi.ca but I think it's time to move my attention elsewhere.

I know identi.ca is working on ActivityPub so this isn't the end of the journey. But we must part for now. I bid you farewell until we meet again, in the bold ActivityPub world of tomorrow.
