Hey friends! Your reminder that I've moved to @email@example.com. (wandering.shop) I'll be updating things here to make that clearer, follow me there and I'll follow back!
is the mastodon icon a play on "timeline goes sideways" because holy shit https://mastodon.social/media/BOparaJcut5wDPFvlBM
Today has been one hell of a day! I have been working on both devops and code optimization non-stop, as well as answering questions and e-mails. A lot of ms have been shaved off of requests and background jobs. Instance admins should probably update to the latest master. I'll be looking into adopting a more stable release system than just the master branch.
Oh also, I did read that "Mastodon will go extinct" article. The author doesn't get it, and didn't reach out to me at all.
Can I get some folks to share my pro-bono offer?
I will set an org up with their own #mastodon installation, see my post for details:
It's kinda weird to think about a social network where businesses own their own presences, rather than relying on a capricious third party service like Twitter or Facebook. Imagine NBC or The Verge running a Mastodon instance for their reporters to toot from, or Bethesda operating an instance for PR and customer support. No more lost business when Facebook changes their algorithms again because they need more money from boosted posts.
All these people are "it's very disrespectful not to acknowledge the long and ancient history before you newbies arrived" and I'm like where were you when Evan P was trying to make this work, you NEWBIES. Just stand on the shoulders and stop complaining about the people on top, you lovely beautiful founders of the future
