Listen up you little punk. You are intelligent and filled with drive, you have kept your heart pure and compassionate, you will accomplish things that no one else would even think to do. You will remake this world in critical and incomparable ways and I am lucky as hell to have gotten to know you while you're still criminally undervalued by this world.
By default, we should probably assume that anything we post anywhere will be available for ever. It is 2017, after all. #endofprivacy
About risk profile:
- Mastodon is like email because you can't delete federated toots
- Mastodon is like twitter in that Google's search bots index it, unless your admins robot.txt it away
- Mastodon is like being a teenager because the people that own your instance can see all your private stuff
Have a talk with your admin about their policies.
By default, assume everyone will be able to read your toots forever.
I was trying to map out the whole #fediverse network using kumu.io/wakest/fediverse if anyone wants to help
The more I think about, the more I kind of like having multiple platforms for the same social media identity. It allows me to keep twitter for... well, exactly what it's good for:

Sustaining a loose affiliation with people in my line of work, and developments in that field.
Whereas here, of course, I can develop a parallel and expanded persona while not dissociating one from the other.
The medium is me.
