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

"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."
"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 #Fediverse 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."
"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."
The more I think about #mastodon 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 #Fediverse 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 #Fediverse during this same last 90 days.
What is the #Fediverse 2.0? (Made me laugh a bit)
