W zeszłym tygodniu opisałem o uruchomieniu własnego mastodonowego serwera przy pomocy dockera.
🤙 Dziś mija tydzień i....jestem zadowolony z efektu. Co prawda, czuję się nieco wykluczony (brak szerszego zasięgu przy np. wyszukiwaniu postów po hashtagach) i nie wiem, czy nie wrócę do macierzy, ale to kolejne ciekawe doświadczenie.

I wrote a bot that parses the current instances and assigns them to the respective (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASN).

Interesting is the concentration on a few top ASN. Here for example the 10 most frequent ASNs as Pie Chart (as of 11/25/2022).

❤️ Thanks to @TheKinrar for the nice API for receiving the current mastodon instances.

@vanlueckn @TheKinrar Even worse: over ~1500 servers in single location in Paris. And counting all projects - even more ~2000 servers in this location: https://fediverse.observer/map. Lets don't go this way!

OK, so this is interesting. Some major organizations have now set up their own Mastodon instances:

European Union: EU Voice >>> https://social.network.europa.eu/explore
German gov: Explore social.bund.de >>> https://social.bund.de/explore
Internet Archive: Explore Internet Archive >>> https://mastodon.archive.org/explore

Whether you are a large company, a political party, an international news agency, an NGO or a government institution, you should seriously consider running your own Mastodon server.

A week after joining Mastodon, I can make some comparisons. is driven by outrage, anxiety, attention-seeking, and the fascinating spectacle of mean banters. It’s addictive, high adrenaline, and unhealthy, both at the individual and collective levels. is fueled by curiosity, kindness, and simple wonders. It’s more peaceful, sometimes a little boring, but it can also create real human connections. You don’t feel like you need to take a shower after reading a few posts.

Pytania do społeczności:

Czy ktoś postawił "polską" instancję , z której korzystać mogłyby ekipy moderacyjne "polskich" instancji /#mastodon/#glitch-soc, by podejmować decyzje bardziej "demokratycznie"?

Macie wiedzę?

A może jakaś osoba dysponująca chęciami, czasem i infrastrukturą postawiłaby?

A może macie jakieś inne pomysły niż wykorzystanie loomio?

Dzięki za podbicie/boost :)

Having an based IM embedded into wouldn't be too bad of an idea. Fediverse for fediverse (will be satisfied), and lightweight encrypted DMs will be too.

I would never use mastodon for my primary messaging needs, but if someone were to DM me on the fediverse, I'd rather have it and federated, like it would be if XMPP worked with mastodon and the likes.

Just made my follower and following lists private and wondering why that isn’t the default on (and why I didn’t do it sooner). I actually wish it didn’t even show the counts. Why should anyone care how many people follow you? I know we’ve been conditioned into curating social graphs to be exploited by others (not to mention the potential for targeted abuse) and evaluating our self-worth based on a series of numbers but we don’t have to perpetuate those practices in our own spaces.

I’ve been using six apps.

  • web app, for a short time in the beginning
  • and I don’t remember exactly what features it was missing
  • in the meanwhile I start using CLI app
  • ! my first paid app
  • Finally came and I was delighted
  • But then official app also came to iOS, and I was thinking that it will be the best choice
    And now I’m changing my mind. Official app isn’t so good, and the web app isn’t too worse from native apps.
@aral@mastodon.ar.al

If you’re setting up your own fediverse presence at your own domain, don’t make the same mistake I did and call it mastodon.my.domain. Give it a generic name like social.my.domain, activity.my.domain, fedi.my.domain or something similar. You don’t want to tie an endpoint for an open protocol to a single implementation or perpetuate the myth that is the .

(Yes, you can migrate to a different subdomain later but it’s not a one-click process.)

ATTENTION EVERYONE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER “#MASTODON ADMINS CAN READ MY DIRECT MESSAGES”: have always been able to read your and DMs unless encrypted, including at the big and Internet providers. We used to have t-shirts that said, “I READ YOUR EMAIL.”

It’s just hitting now because you got used to places where the admins were kept away in their cubicles and data centers instead of greeting you at the front door.
