It is time to ban surveillance-based advertising. There is no reason companies should have the right to profile their users.

Mastodon is the NPR of social media. "Please support your local instance!"

Who is the real life Bond Villian?

I have Mastodon and apps on my phone. It is like a race to see which one notifies me fastest.

Almost 180k new users joined #mastodon yesterday, a new record. This third #twitterMigration wave happened after Musk's Twitter 2.0 ultimatum to #Twitter workers. Each wave is stronger than the previous one. Here is my updated plot showing the three consecutive waves.

Cryptotwitter hating on Mastodon and The Fediverse sounds a lot like Bitcoin maxis hating on any other blockchain that isn't theirs.

An Incredible Day In Internet History

It started with the Twitter lockout. 10,000 new users per hour. A QUARTER MILLION people migrated to Mastodon in one day. The servers struggled. Remarkably, admins all over the world built up capacity in real time. New users were patient. The system held.

It's running better now. There will be more hard days ahead, but people powered social media has arrived.

I joined this site a fortnight ago today.

I did not have a clue how it worked, or about its lore and culture.

Now, it seems intuitive - though not because I am adept but because networks and protocols are familiar and practical things.

We use them all the time: www, mobiles, emails, etc.

And this place is structured to encourage calm civility.

It was Twitter which was strange and, in many ways, inhumane - rewarding clicks and rage and vileness.

We just got used to it.

And now we are out.

I suspect #FediHug is getting pretty close to crushing strength for a larger percentage of the internet than it's ever had.

world's largest inadvertent DDoS cannon to date? could be. could be.

Maybe now I won't see screen shots of birdsite all over everywhere else? Okay, I know. Wishful thinking.
