Hey if anyone wants to live on the bleeding edge of Mastodon development I stood up a staging server at https://beta.darksocial.party. Join and pound on it but know that it could be wiped at any time with no warning!
Pitch me! for The Recompiler
I'm interested in new articles on a few topics:
- Federated systems and deletion: why it’s hard and why it matters
- Looking at Mastadon in terms of security and privacy
- Using labor history to understand what’s going on in the tech industry and/or open source
We pay, and people from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to submit. Email info at recompilermag dot com and see recompilermag.com/participate for our guidelines
we're currently unable to federate with toot.cat because connections are timing out; a basic `curl` request takes two minutes to resolve https://gist.github.com/dunn/5649403e5ac0ef9b31bcf21c3a861f23
both servers are digitalocean, ours in germany and them in the US

April post-mortem: The rise and rise of Mastodon https://medium.com/@Gargron/april-post-mortem-12e3d141878c
the big news from that medium article gargron made is not the snarky title but that he's actually taking on a project manager and making a public roadmap, and making organizational changes such that he is cooperating with others and doing community outreach.
if you told me this in january i wouldn't have believed you
