Fedi meta about scaling 

My biggest influencers are my parents, and they barely have any followers. So I am quite sure fedi is able to properly scale for social relations just fine

You’re not the product anymore. You’re a community member in your host’s ad-free server they pay for. There’s no venture capitalist payday coming for them. Everything you do here costs your host a little bit of money. Find out how you can chip in.

Oh man... just found that the "MASTO 95" theme is the correct way to use this site.

I don't think Mastodon or the fediverse has ever received this much attention before. It's a great opportunity for people to finally see that social media can be done differently, that it can be a protocol not under control of any single company.

I see quite a lot of #Science posts expressing concern if The Public will follow their authors' #TwitterMigration over on here.

Here's the thing: they don't even have to. Every #Mastodon account has an #RSS feed. For example, here's mine:
mstdn.social/@rysiek.rss

Every hashtag has an RSS feed as well (as seen from a given instance), for example:
mstdn.social/tags/Science.rss

Your audiences can follow you without ever setting up an account on fedi, with any RSS reader.

The Fediverse is Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Osada, and all their friends, federating. 👍
But what do we call all the silos, the ad-based family of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and friends? It’s the Adverse! A universe founded on ad serving. And a reminder that they offer plenty of adversity. All the adverse silos stand alone, like rocks, like islands, like Alcatraz. 👎
And what about Orkut, Google Wave, Google+ and other networks that have come and gone. This is the Necroverse.
Sometimes networks that seem alive today slide into the necroverse. Let’s hope we keep our network alive. Here’s to many happy years in the fediverse! 😁🥳

Was watching a great talk on Signal trending on HN today. Was pleasantly surprised that the speaker really valued an open system and federation!

Something about his username was familiar... Took ~5min for me to realize it was @rysiek! Excellent presentation my good sir!

"$WEBSITE is better on the app!!" says website whose app is only "better" in the sense that it does not have popups telling you it is better on the app
