Oh! PS! 9/8!
mastodon.social - the server you’re reading this on - is getting way overloaded. But the good news is that, thanks to federation, you can take part by registering on any other Mastodon server in the network (see https://instances.mastodon.xyz/ ), or even set up your own. That’s the point.
See you around the network!
@da_667 Until a Corp comes and blows it all up. Or until Wired does a piece on how cool and hipster-tech it is.
I just realized that Mastodon is totally in line with this long-ass article I wrote, "There Will Be More Intermediaries. Not Less.",
tl;dr: Moore’s law breaks up concentrated information silos into fractally smaller bits, like so much grease in soapy dishwater.
