In about an hour I will be holding the longest talk in front of simultaneously the smallest and highest amount of people of my life so far.
It’s about building less inaccessible web sites.
RT @AdamBienkov@twitter.com: The Evening Standard has secretly agreed a £3 million deal with companies, including Uber and Google, to provide them with “favourable” news coverage, without telling readers. https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/james-cusick/george-osborne-s-london-evening-standard-promises-positive-news-coverage-to-uber-goo

*Mastodon: Federated Social Network with Eugen Rochko*
Isn't that fun, listening to @Gargron ! 🤓
Here is the direct mp3 (if you want to pause, skip, jump, forward or download):
So, let's talk instance size vs instance culture!
If you're not on one of the >50k instances: How do you deal with new users?
If you're on an instance with one or two major topics: how do you deal with new users who chose your instance randomly and aren't all that much into your topics?
Mastodon doesn't really have a way to introduce new users to the instance, and to help them integrate with their new instance's culture, rules, and maybe topics (if applicable). A welcome message could help …
As announced I've done some research in the distribution of our mastodon instances regarding the network (AS) they use.
The top five countries with mastodon instances:
- 36 GB
- 356 DE
- 786 FR
- 810 JP
- 1284 US
