@bjoern I'm from New England. Mass, actually. Now that's just awesome. You never hear about colleges joining these revolutions.

@cambridgeport90 @bjoern There's also mastodon.acc.sunet.se hosted at a Swedish university and as far as public instances I know the French government has mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr though I think it's only open to people with a gouv.fr email address, and from Brazil there is social.lab.cultura.gov.br which I believe is operated by or with support of their Ministry of Culture. (My Portugese leaves something to be desired.)

@frankiesaxx @bjoern I confirm that accounts on mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr are open to civil servants (.gouv.fr emails and a few others), but it is fully connected to the fediverse :)

We installed it almost a year ago.

@frankiesaxx @bjoern
Nice, didn't know about Etalab. There are also mastodon.iut-larochelle.fr (University of La Rochelle), mastodon.redbrick.dcu.ie (Dublin City University), and mastodonevry.ovh (l'Université d'Evry-Val-d'Essonne).


I haven't used Google search in about 2 years. Anyone who keeps doing so is part of the problem. ;)

And the "better results" retorts just don't add up in my experience. DDG has been the norm for me and serving just fine.

Now SearX might be even saner, though I don't see a pressing need for that extreme just yet. Searx's results do seem a bit lacking too.
