This is clearly my fault.

Almost two years ago during the Freenode takeover apocalypse I said "I'll never witness anything like this again" and well

New people! Time to tell you more about the Fediverse :fediverse:

Mastodon is just one kind of server on a much bigger network called the Fediverse. Many of the people you follow on Mastodon aren't on Mastodon servers.

Servers on the Fediverse use a common open technical standard called ActivityPub. This means people on different kinds of ActivityPub-compatible servers can follow each other.

For example the photo account at can be followed at @Iancylkowski

Try it!

:boosts_ok_gay: Hey! I'm looking for design feedback on current fediverse clients, both web, mobile and desktop.

What decisions do you like? What do you dislike? What new features would you like to see?

And for Mastodon Web specifically: do you prefer the single-column or multi-column (advanced mode) layout? Why?

Today, part of Google’s new Play Rules come into force, banning VPN apps which affect ads or tracking, seemingly including those affecting DNS queries to include an ad block list like PiHole does. No vested interest in those rules, clearly, from the company with their trackers in 87.6% of Android apps! (@RDBinns et al.

We hebben de afgelopen bijna 6 jaar meerdere stromen nieuwe gebruikers moeten ervaren op #Mastodon. Meerdere keren van Twitter natuurlijk, maar ook van oud Tumblr-gebruikers en van Google+ toen die de nek werd omgedraaid. Echter dat duurde max. 2 a 3 dagen. We zitten nu op dag 6 en het houdt maar niet op!

Hey mensen, Mastodon is gratis maar kost wel geld. Ik heb net een 10tje overgemaakt aan de beheerder van mijn instance (@stux van

Als je iets kan missen, doneer jouw instance dan ook wat! Je kunt zulke info vinden bij "over deze server" of "about this instance".

Wist je dat veel instances beheerd worden door maar één of soms enkele mensen, die zich vrijwillig helemaal de klere werken op dit moment? Veel servers zullen ook een upgrade nodig hebben met deze mega influx van Twitter.

Support your local server before you support official Mastodon development!

Check what fork your local server runs before you support the official Mastodon development.

You'll find some really cool people, and Your money will probably have a much larger impact supporting the local server and forks.

> Hey! Our org has two trans women on the run now transiting through UK, they got stuck there because of visa bullshit; currently figuring it out, but it needs time. They need a place to stay for a week-two. They're in England, but Wales/Scotland works, they have a car. They can't afford hotels hence the question, but they'll be able to fix their own food and help with energy if needed. Know anyone who could help? Pretty urgent.

>>> [ . . . ] The Myth of the Changeling child, a human baby apparently replaced at a young age by a toddler who “suddenly” acts “strange and fey” is an almost *textbook* depiction of autistic children. [ . . . ]

>> I think it’s worth noting that many like me, who are diagnosed with ASD now, would probably have been seen as just a bit odd in centuries past. [ . . . ]

>> [ . . . ] If I went back in time and lived on a farm somewhere, would anyone even notice there was anything odd about me? No police sirens, no crowded streets that go on for miles and miles, no flickery electric lights. Working on a farm has a clear routine. I’d be a badass at spinning cloth or churning butter because I find endless repetition soothing rather than boring.

>> [ . . . ] What I’m saying is that disability exists in the context of the environment. Our environment isn’t making people autistic in the sense of some chemical causing brain damage. But we have created a modern environment which is hostile to autistic people in many ways, which effectively makes us more disabled. [ . . . ]

Today, I learned to count.

Or, I learned how to trick a bunch of sand to pretend it's another bunch of sand that knows how to count.

I wish Matrix was active enough and well-known enough that I could get local communities of non-tech people to switch.

pls boost this status. there's a weird gts concurrency bug and i'm trying to narrow it down with some extra debug code in place, but i think i need to stress this instance to actually trigger it

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain
