Retooting because I sent it kind of late last night and it don't want it to get lost in the weeds:
Admins and would-be admins! I uploaded the Ansible playbooks I wrote to deploy Mastodon to Digital Ocean to GitHub. They're at: https://github.com/kstrauser/mastodon_admin
Let me know if you have any suggestions or complaints. PRs are most welcome!
@txvb Comcast wireless!?! https://www.engadget.com/2017/04/06/comcast-xfinity-mobile-mvno-wifi-verizon/ Time to break them up.
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.
