I'm considering setting up a instance, just for me, so I can control my data.

But people read my tech books, and get the idea that I know what I'm doing. (They're mistaken.)

So: if I set up a personal Mastodon instance: am I setting a bad example? Will the protocols break? Will terrible things happen? Will I destroy a nice platform?

And if I write "Mastodon Mastery" and encourage people to set up their own platform, will I be declared Tooter Of The Apocalypse?

@mwlucas I'm also considering running an instance, to help lower the load on the big one.

@phessler I'd love to see a BSD community Mastodon instance.
