@markhurst thanks for inviting and reintroducing me to this new and different social media platform.

I'm super excited to officially announce: I have just launched - a new review site for non-toxic online tools, fully supported by users.

Please share - we need to give more exposure to teams creating good tools.

And yes, @Mastodon itself gets a mention!
