"Mastodon and the W3C" has 100 "fans" on Medium. Not bad
For comparison, "Learning from Twitter's mistakes" (one of the first articles I've written) had 65 "fans", while "Welcome to Mastodon" (the April one) had 283.
I think the commercial networks are bound to keep screwing up sooner or later. One of the things Mastodon offers which the silos don't is self-determination.
Like, hypothetically, I could make a stupid design decision in the software, but even then there's forks and community input.
The only way for silo users to counteract top-down abuse is leaving to.. well, us
@jonathanmh I think they use OpenCollective (which is kinda like Patreon but for orgs). One of the interesting bits is that they use democracy software for executive decisions https://medium.com/open-collective/social-coop-a-cooperative-decentralized-social-network-c10980c9ed91
