Has anyone here checked out Mastodon*? It's pretty neat-- basically it's like twitter, but without any central server-- instead, anyone can host a Mastodon instance (we could even have a Kafuka instance if we wanted) and the instances "federate" with other instances, so you can follow anyone as long as they're connected to yours.

I really like the idea here; it seems like a combination of some of the best ideas of modern social networks with the separate community-feelings of 00's forums (like, er, this one)... Culturally too it seems pretty refreshing compared to Twitter.

If you are on there, we should follow each other! I'm @nei@mastodon.social

* - Yes, Mastodon built on top of the existing GNU Social infrastructure and other concepts, it's not new on its own, but it's added a lot of usability benefits and the like

The only Mastodon I've heard of is the band. Sorry. :P

Hell yeah.

In all seriousness, it seems intriguing, but I don't think I understand what it does that makes it really fun and unique. What puts it beyond something like Twitter or Discord?

Sounds interesting, might have to try it in the future, considering that Twitter and Facebook are starting to go to hell ;)

This is exactly what I see as the benefit; with Twitter, if Twitter Inc. decides to do things you dislike or makes the service unusable, you have no real recourse. But with Mastodon everything is open source and you can move to a different instance where things are as you like, but still follow all the people you were following before.

I'm happy to see I wasn't the only one who thought of Mastodon as in the band.

while this would make a good twitter replacement, with twitter already here I'm not expecting a lot of people to care.

what comes first usually stays. even when it starts showing its true colors like twitter and fb are

Facebook is a trash fire of horrible clickbait articles and a bunch of bullshit I don't want, and I'm glad I deleted mine. Maybe I would've had more use for it if I had real life friends though.

Twitter's actually alright with me in all honesty, it has its problems but I don't mind it apart from how shitty it is for uploading any sort of images.

@Thierry not necessarily true, look at IM services. They come and go every few years or so.

However this is nice. I used the much less trendy GNU social and diaspora* before but never really got into them that much but this thread makes me want to check them out again.

I haven't tried it yet, but I kinda wanted to just to give it a go. Maybe I will do so soon!

We could spin off a Kafuka instance if we get.. enough interest. I need to know more about how it works first and all that. :)

Scratch that. @emuz@mastodon.social :D

(For now anyway. If I stick with the platform I'll jump to another instance. hehe)
