My fave part of the current flurry of fediverse activity is watching all my fellow early adopter instance admins geek out at the fact that so much of the general public seems to finally be *getting* it.

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

I remember one of the things that motivated me to look into the state of decentralized social media (and ultimately begin working on Mastodon) in 2016 were talks that a controversial billionaire might buy Twitter.

Now would be the prime time for any Mastodon admins with servers capable of accepting new users and scaling up to submit them to joinmastodon.org

Elon buys - people celebrate free speech and I get banned on the same day for asking a rhetorical question! 🤣🤣🤣
