Mastodon might have a chance at surviving if we can get organizations like universities, labs & non-profits running their own instances.
@Shrutarshi hackerspaces. LUGs. etc.
@Shrutarshi but what instance do you join?
@pillarist Same as answering "what email provider do you use?"
@pillarist yep! You can choose something like Mastodon.social, or a commercial provider for your "personal" one, and then others for whatever organization you're a part of.
@Shrutarshi Pirate Party just installed it on their server..
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
