just another reminder: I've moved over to https://mastodon.xyz/@er1n for the forseeable future.
if anyone hasn't senn @sarahjeong's article on Motherboard abt mastodon yet, go check it out. it's pretty great at explaining what mastodon and federation are to laypeople.
hypothesis: if too many early users sign up on mastodon.social instead of other instances, federation will end up becoming a second-class feature. (imagine what email today would look like if gmail had existed in the 90s.)
other instances need to be able to compete with mastodon.social for growth, or https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/177 should be implemented.
