Odd question: does anyone know if there are good or instances active in ?
If so want to be sure to Federate them… wired.com/story/subvert-iran-i

I really like the ideals of and wonder what elements of this might be applicable to future apps...


What would folks think about the idea of setting up bots to auto-crosspost the tweets from these Ukrainian accounts into the fediverse on the theory that some might federate to RU and UA instances?

Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine

And: the official Twitter account of Ukraine: twitter.com/Ukraine

Does anyone have data on the 's reach into or into ?

Something to build to and to create in 2022. Something the , and are all striving for.

This principles quoted verbatim by Bruce Sterling in 2013, hold up pretty well…and I think apply to a lot of and efforts, too….


A great resource for where things and things overlap and build on each other.


Would be interesting to see if any alliance between hosting or Indieweb hosting and IFPS and

"The vast majority of the internet's data is stored by 3 companies. Filecoin is attempting to build a decentralized internet so we don't have to rely on these companies."


A case for the - which I think largely makes the same case for self-hosted instances:

"There is an alternative to corporate bubbles online — it’s called the IndieWeb. Build your own personal websites, control your online presence, and learn on your own terms."


Yes. "The needs more developers."

"I ran through the 42 repos of every site in the Social Media category, adding the notably absent Diaspora, and I get a grand total of 76 active developers. Looking at the commit logs and pretty graphs I’d estimate that putting it in terms of full-time developers, we’re in the single digits."


In essence, DHH is advocating for social actions vs. big platforms and I totally agree. And think the could benefit by building itself in this direction.

"Everything from everyone all the time is too much. It's unnatural and it's unhealthy. We weren't built to listen to hundreds if not thousands of people every day.

Tools that let individuals publish, but do not seek to amplify them or force them viral, give us that natural, human scale."


Hey all: am going to be updating this page on our Instance website, cleaning out some inactive ones, and adding new voices in the and space that are in the Fediverse.

Any suggestions for new additions?


The more I think about features that would be strategic, the more I think folks should build in features and tools for hyper-local communities to use. Lean in on "instances" intended specifically for networks of a dozen (or at least under 100) friends and family. In essence a replacement for "FB groups."

The certainly do more, but that seems like a strategic opportunity. In essence what Darius Kazemi has been thinking about for a while.


So fascinating to see what a burning trash fire, Facebook and Twitter and YouTube have been this election season (disinfo, white nationalists, etc) compared to what I've seen here on the during this same last 90 days.

has already built so many of these ideas in. Which ones do you think are good ideas and still lacking inside Mastodon or the ?
