I have started using this metaphor when recommending friends to use it.

The metaphor extends to the available feeds:

'Home': chat w/ my friends circle, including neighbors and visitors you invited in.

'Local': building party, hang w/ neighbors.

'Federated': take a walk down the street, see weird stuff, chat w/ random strangers, but keep your guard up.

Of course, it's not a perfect match, but I think it quickly conveys the social experience and trade-offs between different instances.

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you

please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u

:mastodon: Mastodon tip: you can customize a column to list multiple hashtags (and block-list some of them too). It's a good way to discover all the posts gravitating around the topics you like (eg. for art, #mastoart is a popular one). That's really a feature I love here and wanted to share it to newcomers.

Before you buy that e-book from Amazon, do yourself a favor and see if the publisher has a website with direct sales.

I've found a number of books that I was interested in DRM-free, in EPUB format, and sometimes at a discounted price, just by poking around a little.

Built my Ploopy today, so enjoy this terrible shot of it under my Ergodox!
Reachable by a stretch of the thumb so I never have to leave my home row again.

OMG! First blog post in 9 years! :O
I wrote a bit about how my email is now set-up. It covers how I run IMAPFilter, isync (mbsync) and Notmuch through Docker on my NAS.

Tried to write up a bit more about couchdb and decentralised data - getting better at articulating this setup

I'm having a hard time getting a clear picture of the issue as well.

The people defending RMS are unhinged, toxic cesspools of hate and mysogyny and I want to stay as far away from them as possible.
On the other side, the open letter from Gnome seems to be willfully quote mining or misrepresenting some of what RMS has written.

Where's the factual discussion?

Note: I was hoping GamingOnLinux would have been the place, but that discussion got overrun by the RMS defenders as well.
