"This small device creates a portal to a new dimension."
"Wow! Are there people there?"
"No, it's a tiny dimension, just large enough for a wallet or phone."
"So it's useless."
"No! It can add pockets to any garment."
"So what?"
"Any garment!"
"We already have pockets."
"You do."

Oh nice, @erincandescent is here :)

Erin is the person who transformed the Pump API into the first draft of what became ActivityPub. ActivityPub wouldn't have happened without her hard work!

Tusky gained almost 20% more users in the last week. :blobcat:

it's 2100. we continue to use regular telephones but everyone owns at least a dozen of them. we all have robot house-servants, mainly to keep track of all our telephones and bring us the right one when it rings. a popular young person has upwards of 30 telephones, several in each room of the house. magazines and print newspapers are still going - thriving, in fact. the largest is the New Fork Times, with its 85 weekly panels of hentai, "the sunday fuckys". also, nobody uses the internet anymore

Open-source, negativity

folks i'm gonna be real honest with you...

i NEED this Mastodon thing to take off because i just ordered 80,000 of these bumper stickers from the printer, and i can't afford to be caught holdin' my junk if this whole thing fizzles.

please consider my personal commercial interests when choosing a social media platform, thk u!

@nico Yeah, it's funny how all the stuff that people never considered when they joined birdsite (the common euphemism for Tw*tter here on Mastodon, BTW) suddenly become reasons not to join Mastodon according to its detractors.

Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the #Fediverse? 🗺️

It's a set of community projects that use the #ActivityPub standard to talk to each other.

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

Instagram -> PixelFed 📷

YouTube -> PeerTube 🎞️

SoundCloud -> Funkwhale 🎧
@funkwhale join.funkwhale.audio/

MeetUp -> GetTogether 🍻

...and many others.

To a lot of people #twitter is not a Web site (no ads, either) but a communication tool that just happens to have many people on it (network effect)
To many #facebook "useds" #fb isn't a site but an 'app' -- one that spies on their photos and movements 24/7/365

Actually, I first joined Mastodon around 2017-05-24, and then created an account on mastosoc, then deleted that account, then came back, and now I am instance hopping for emojis. :blobpeek:

Reminder for newcomers: Know about your instance!

Each instance should have an about page at /about/more (e.g. Octodon's is at: octodon.social/about/more )

You can usually learn who runs your instance (if you don't know already) AND, hey, they might have a way that you can support the costs of running the instance financially, like Patreon

Please...PLEASE think about why you're following ppl on here.

Stop following ppl you don't like.

There's a thing from Birdland that can be left behind.

It would be extremely inconvenient for me if my mother dies now
