I kinda want to play around with a Mastodon instance without actually investing anything. I'm not sure if that's possible, though. I tried to run it locally via Docker and it failed. Could have been user error...

I don't _think_ there's currently an instance for my area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/Carrboro), and I think it would be a fun project to work on, even if I'm the only one there.

DigitalOcean looks like it would be easiest, but it doesn't have the latest version on the marketplace.


@amwelles use docker on a DigitalOcean VM to install the latest version.
