Popular webcomic "The Oatmeal" no longer asks people to follow them on #Facebook, #Twitter, #instagram etc. Here's their explanation as to why (contains minor swearing):

You can follow PeerTube accounts from Mastodon because they are both part of the Fediverse.

When viewed from Mastodon, PeerTube accounts look and work like Mastodon accounts. However, if you click on their profile image you will see their PeerTube page.

For example try going to @pianotv on Mastodon and click on the profile image.

There's a list of interesting PeerTube accounts to follow over on FediFollows:

Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added

One of the biggest announcements in my 25-year career.

I hope you'll join me.

“Ethicists” at Big Tech companies are the new doctors in the Big Tobacco ads.

"Google, which has monetized the amplification and spread of disinformation for years, here is using a surveillance tower with hidden cameras to present itself as a trusted authority."

@markhurst thanks for inviting and reintroducing me to this new and different social media platform. As a sculptor and small business owner I am struggling with deleting Instagram as it has become a tool for marketing yet I cannot in good conscience continue to use it. I'm hoping Mastodon will over time, grow to a viable art marketing alternative to the bonafide monopoly that Facebook has become. Thank you Mark and your techtonic tips booklet!
