Portland's cycle hire station wanted me to type in my gender!
I've found that the best way to introduce people to mastodon is to immediately suggest them a server.
Even if it's an invite only server, you can message the admins that you have someone in mind for ther server and would like an invite link to send to them.
It helps a lot. This is how you'll get friends and family on here.
omg omg it's time to watch the NEW episode of 🚀 🛰 THE EXPANSE 🍿 ✨

The Dutch Jon Stewart, Arjen Lubach, set up a Facebook event for tomorrow night where everyone will delete their account. He's also deleting his own and his show's.
I wish I could join the party, but I deleted my account last month. If you're still on the fence, maybe he'll convince you: https://www.facebook.com/zondagmetlubach/videos/1711346418957093/

If I wrote apps I would totally create a mastodon app that showcased the photos, showing them full-frame rather than cropped, etc., like instagram. (I'm assuming that's possible?) I love the photos my friends post on instagram, but I don't see the same encouragement to put the effort in here because the interface just doesn't highlight them the same way.
I like the idea behind #GoboLinux, but I'm curious about how it actually shakes out in practice.
IMO the nix-like filesystem hierarchy has always been kind of bad for non-technical users, and can even be confusing for those who do have a lot of experience with it.
