"Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt they can't afford the time to think. Tuition fee increases are a disciplinary technique,' and, by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the 'disciplinarian culture.' This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy."

~ Noam Chomsky

As much as we wanted to release a stable version on Oct 17th, we can admit its not production ready quite yet.

We do not want to sacrifice quality and your expectations just so we can say it was finished in 6 months.

We appreciate your support, and can't wait for tomorrow! ❤️

This damn thing is brilliant!

#Django has evolved quite a bit in the time I haven't seen it. Last version I used was 1.7 but 1.8 was released by the time I stopped working on Django.

Django at 2.1 has matured well.

Suggestion for Mastodon (to prevent eventual gMastodon instance): cap instance size at 100 - 1,000 account by default. Make it a social contract for instances not to federate with instances greater than that limit.

Or, a few years from now, say hello to “gMastodon”. (See history of email and the Web for a lesson in the future.)

That said, we might already be on that path.
