@Hyolobrika @arcalinea you can find a bigger version here:
It is still a work in progress, so if you have any feedback, corrections and/or suggestions they are more than appreciated and you can file them here: (everyone will be credited). For example, 2009 and 2012 are missing atm because we couldn't find any relevant events for those years.

Someone shared this wild chart of the Fediverse with me. Groovy 70's meets Tables. And 2009 and 2012 are missing? I'm in awe. How..

I'm giving an overview of the state of decentralized social networks on Wednesday at a virtual meetup, Open Tech Will Save Us, hosted by Matrix:

There will also be talks on the Nym Mixnet and Aether P2p. Drop by!

Does anyone follow a PeerTube or PixelFed account on here? What is it?

What features or aspects of Mastodon do you like the most, and what do you like the least?

Thoughts on Twitter decentralization project?

Can anyone recommend a Mastodon <-> Twitter bridge?
