New from me today: The value of the big deal has declined. Will libraries drive down its price -- or help publishers prop up its value? scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/20

This instance architecture is still bugging me.
It seems like users have to pick one as their home, their main base, their primary lens through which they experience Mastodon.

New from me to start September: Is "read and publish" -- new models for scholarly journal publishing -- good for the academy? scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/20

I was spotted while running this morning at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study.

@auntiekiki I do not see any tweets from that instance in its "Look Inside" column. Perhaps due to a comparative lack of activity in that instance. But anyway, it doesn't seem to help me with my objective which is to check out that community. @libskrat @stephenfrancoeur

@auntiekiki This is the one I was interested in: code4lib.social/about -- I don't see a way to view tweets coming out of this instance. Maybe I am missing something. @libskrat @stephenfrancoeur

@auntiekiki I can see why a master list might be problematic, maybe. But is there a way to see all tweets coming out of an instance to which you do not belong? @libskrat @stephenfrancoeur

@libskrat @stephenfrancoeur There definitely can be that opportunity. Here I don't see it well executed. I thought, since code4lib has its own presence/server, maybe I'll see who's there. I cannot figure out a way to discover all the users of a given community without first joining it as a member.

@stephenfrancoeur @libskrat My biggest difficulty so far here is finding accounts that I want to follow and then successfully following them. The federated thing is a bit of a hurdle for both of those processes.

@libskrat What do you think is the likelihood that extinctelephantsite can replace birdsite for your (our?) community?
