Guardian review of Twitter circa 2007:

"Since launching a year ago as a side project by the people behind the podcasting and audio site Odeo, Twitter has gained traction with a large number of Silicon Valley cognoscenti and some of the web's most high-profile names. Critics say it is another pointless distraction in a world already suffering information overload, and wonder how users manage to keep tabs on what they're really up to"

Hello Fediverse,

Can you recommend any managed hosting services for starting your own Mastodon (or other Fediverse) instance?

@mastohost is doing a great job in making it easier to start your own instance. Are they the only ones?

#Fediverse #Federation #Instances #SelfHosting #Mastodon

OK, I am going to ask again one last time before making the leap to a smaller instance

Is there a #sanfrancisco focused instance? It would be cool if it were closed/invite only, pro-lgbtq, poc-led/run, veg/vegan positive, foss supporting or any combination of those

My car gets forty rods to the hogshead and that's the way I likes it

News organizations and journalists shouldn't be seeking "verified" account status on silo services, but should be embracing the with their own managed instances.

It makes complete sense that a BMW driver would rather pull their car up onto the sidewalk rather than wait 20 seconds for the light to change. Glenoaks and Pacific, Glendale.

besides jawns.club, I know about bigshoulders.city (chicago) and pdx.social (portland)

what other city-based mastodon instances are out there?

Hey do y'all like graphs? here are some graphs for mastodon.technology over the past 30 days.

We've got... :digitalocean: and :sidekiq: ... Hold on, I'll grab some more...

Attention Mastodon server owners: Security patch release v2.4.4 is out. It's a quick upgrade.

If you are deploying Mastodon from the master branch, update to at least commit 802cf6a.

But do is with hundreds of cyclists and shut that freeway down!

HOW TO EXECUTE A MERGE ONTO THE FREEWAY:
Step 1. Drive your car onto the on-ramp.
Step 2. Look for gaps in traffic.
Step 3. Take your time finding a gap.
Step 4. Don’t speed up or slow down to line up with a gap. Leave it up to fate.
Step 5. If done correctly, you’ll end up adjacent to another car. Wait patiently until the very last second and then slam on your brakes.
Step 6. Give yourself a bonus for not using your turn-signal.
