Holy shit, Jack just tweeted about the #Mastodon Band/Social joke on #BirdSite! https://twitter.com/jack/status/850070169468649472
"So the point is to ask not whether there is a level of abstraction at which the whole universe can be viewed as computational—because it is trivially true that there is—but rather whether that is the right level at which to analyze the universe without blurring all differences, like a night in which all cows are black, to borrow a saying from Hegel."
@martijn_grooten next step for Mastodon is to put all the usernames in a distributed ledger run by all the Mastodon servers to have a unique blockchain of usernames. #BlockchainAllTheThings #WhenAllYouHaveIsABlockchainEverythingLooksLikeANail
I am originating a new usage of the ✅. I hope it catches on, because in a sense it's mostly used this way now.
As portability is currently quite limited, the checkmark now indicates that I am actively using that instance, and that my other nonchecked instance identities are hibernating.

I wrote a small patch for Mastodon that got accepted yesterday. It lets you set up an email domain whitelist for your instance. For example, if your school wants to set up an instance just for students, they can do it by limiting signups to addresses at `whatever.edu`.

I suppose I can make this semi-formal. :T
Yes, I plan on open sourcing Amaroq. It is not ready to be public-facing at this time (no documentation, local dependencies need cleaning up, I need to finalize a decision on the licensing). But I will be working to do this in the coming weeks. I really do look forward to taking on all the support ya'll are offering, but I gotta get things settled first. I never expected this level of interest this soon. I'll announce when I open things up. Thank you 💕
So Le Monde, aka France's biggest newspaper, has done a story on Mastodon. This is nuts: http://mobile.lemonde.fr/pixels/article/2017/04/04/le-reseau-social-mastodon-un-twitter-plus-proche-de-l-esprit-originel_5105900_4408996.html
Mastodon the band has noticed my project, aaaaaaaaaaa https://twitter.com/mastodonmusic/status/849388922320949249
I'm sure everyone notices the huge delay in the streaming API. I'm basically working non-stop on trying to mitigate that. 4000 toots per hour is just more activity than current processing queue can keep up with
I'm sorry if I wasn't able to answer everyone's messages! My notifications move too fast

Avec le débat des 11 ce soir, Mastodon va être on fire
Wait, wait, everyone. If you're teaching someone how to use Mastodon, are you giving them a... toot-orial?
