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

@lufthans Great, thank you hans! I'll be there, see you then.
@lufthans I'm local to Pasadena and will be in attendance today through Sunday. I'd be happy to suggest Friday or Saturday if that works for anyone else who may be interested.
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).
@stevefoerster It hasn't been on the radar very long for most people. Optimistically, I think that may change in the extended future.
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
