So a couple weeks ago I signed up for Mastodon, a decentralized Twitter-like social network. Since I've had a couple beers with dinner tonight, I think the best way to explain it would be to link to their explainer video:
It's not perfect, but the experience can be as large or small as you'd like. I joined an instance/server called Fosstodon
, which, in my opinion, would be interesting to a lot of the folks here on Scot's Forums. The Fosstodon instance description is below:
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is dedicated to Free & Open Source Software, or FOSS as many call it. Fosstodon is for people who are interested in open source technology and the awesome community around it. Whether that be Linux, open source software like Firefox, or Mastodon itself. If you're interested in technology, Fosstodon is a great place to start.
I know it might not be for everyone, but I just thought I'd throw it out there in case anyone might be interested.
By the way, I'm @fuddster over there. Look me up!
