Apologies to everyone I had to leave out! (your instances are great too)
From Witches to Dolphins, These Are the Communities That Make Mastodon Great https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/from-witches-to-dolphins-these-are-the-communities-that-make-mastodon-great #eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
@masklayer holy shit i think that's a story by itself
@sarahjeong Yeah I'm waiting for the next user count updates to see if they get it restored... Imagine if mastodon wasn't decentralized!
@way Wow, interesting. thanks!
@sarahjeong its ok sarah... we at Wizards.town won't feel upset...
@sarahjeong this is like the journalistic equivalent of shitposting in the best way
@sarahjeong DOLPHIN.TOWN IS KILLING ME
@sarahjeong "Ever since the Japanese-speaking internet has discovered Mastodon, the federations have exploded in size"
lol makes it sound like it was a long time ago 😂
@sarahjeong lol, it must be impossible to write about something that grows so fast
@pessimism my editor asked me if we can pub this on monday and i said lo no
@sarahjeong i feel like a horse track commentator trying to describe mastodon on birdsite
mstdn.jp going from a few hundred to 40k to 1k is just ???
@sarahjeong I'm also working on a fun instance, but it probably won't be ready for a while. Still working on it :)
@sarahjeong Eeeee! Eee. Eeee eee? Eeeeeeee!
@sarahjeong this is why I <3 the internet and more and more what I've been missing.
@sarahjeong A+ Have read again.
@sarahjeong a reader could find your numbers a bit ambiguous. For example, yes it might be true that mastodon had ~35k at the time of the previous article, but when comparing to the current numbers of the .jp instance, it helps to compare with numbers under same denominators/time points. e.g. reference. So, comparing .jp with .m *.social today would be against 47254. Dynamic values are confusing enough so pictures painted should be vivid! My thoughts. e.g. a 1850 USD vs 2017 USD
@sarahjeong hahaha, outstanding
