Better lists are available elsewhere such as the Awesome-Fediverse list or the Feneas/Fediverse.Party watchlist for activitypub apps:

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal should shut down Bluesky.

completely unrelated but this is my favorite Wikipedia list and more businesses should join it:

Shameless plug, I've written a chapter about Mastodon, content moderation, Gab, the Fediverse, and this phenomenon for an upcoming book published by UMD. And here's a video about it, complete with 🎵animation! 🎵

sub-toot aimed towards one of the newest Mastodon installations: You can't just throw some software up on a VPS somewhere and expect it to be roses and sunshine. Operations at scale is incredibly hard, so good luck with that.

Folks in the , you should really be pushing for content management systems that natively support and interact within the ActivityPub ecosystem. Journalists and Media can be participants here *today* with the right software.

Public money, public infrastructure. The public sector must disentangle themselves from non-public communication platforms.

Mozilla has announced a grant of up to $30,000 "to people and projects that illuminate how to reimagine data in a way that shifts power away from big tech platforms and toward individuals and communities."

One of the questions I am asked at the #Eunomia meeting, are there any politicians/journalists using Mastodon? Help me out

Please send me handles of politicians/journalists who are active on Mastodon

Write a letter to your representatives asking them to look into ActivityPub. I just did.

The public sector needs to be a participant in the digital commons.

Twitter has publicly launched their #Bluesky discord and theres ton of people joining it right now cause it was just boosted by Jack. I got them to set up a #fediverse channel and many folks are there discussing the fediverse in relation to the future of twitter. I think its important to make our voices heard there, whatever they may be. Right now there are way too many crypto people trying to push that direction. Come along for a ride!

And yes I know, there's a lot of fediverse skepticism for BlueSky, and yes, I have my own skepticism, but skepticism does not mean that good things won't happen, just that it will be a hard fight to make good things happen. I like Jay a lot and think she is very thoughtful (she's the one that did the overview report, and that was definitely a very good document), so I am cautiously hopeful. But this is something best demonstrated by doing so we will see.
