Do any public health or mutual aid groups want/need a presence on the fediverse? If you have a domain name and are interested in exploring this space, get in contact with me via https://instance.community and I'll help you get something up and running
I have a Mastodon list that I'd like to share, but the only way I can imagine right now is by mentioning all the users in a message manually. Thoughts?
yall just stop for a sec and remember how cool it is that we all own and run this here infrastructure. Yes its a complete mess sometimes but all that means is someone has to pull up their sleeves and plant some seeds, or jump nose first into the haystack and find the needle or make up a new idiom cause these are not cutting it

I've released a new Hometown, v1.0.3+3.1.2. This only upgrades Mastodon to 3.1.2, which incorporates a security fix so I encourage Hometown admins to upgrade asap. Also you get neat new Mastodon features like bookmarks and admin announcements.
@stevefoerster I'm looking forward to further academic adoption. Do you know of any institutions with instances? I know MIT has one (https://mastodon.mit.edu).
The fastest way to get your favorite Twitter user to join the Fediverse is simply to ask them for a link to their account on the Fediverse so you can follow them!
It's as simple as that.
The more people that ask journalists and other professionals to provide them with their link to their Fediverse profile, the more people will sign up and create one. #fediverse #twitter #exodus #mastodon #pleroma

⚠️ #Mastodon v3.1.2 is out with an important security fix:
Likewise, v3.0.2 and v2.9.4 have been released to port this fix to older versions.
The Smithsonian announced today that they have released 2.8 million images into the public domain (CC0 license). In celebration of this I made a bot you can follow that will post one random image from the set every 8 hours:

Attention #Mastodon sysadmins! A new release with some security fixes will drop on Thursday, prepare to upgrade -- we'll release 2.9.x, 3.0.x, and 3.1.x versions to make sure you have the easiest time upgrading for this.
Just a friendly driving tip from a 27 yr veteran truck driver. If you are passing a large tractor trailer. Mash the gas and GO! Dont slow down like you are trying sneak past a sleeping dog.
Dont linger around us. We literally can not see you. And the longer you are there the higher the chance that something could happen. So mash the gas and tote that ass on by. Please!
