In last 96 hours on #mastodon, I found:
- 3 sci-fi I haven't read before
- 50 great sites
- five programming concepts
- three #visualisations
- ideas on #social_media/#GS for teaching
- insights on how to debate in #social_media
Over the same 96 hours, similar browsing, in Facebook and Twitter, I found:
- 50 different posts about funny memes on #United Airlines
- Several hundred vanity posts and selfies
- 1 article on #cricket
- Trolls fighting with each other.
- Vernor Vinge "Rainbow's End" + two more (Fire upon the deep + peace war)
- Depoloying Mastodon instances on Docker/DigitalOcean, APL, Mastodon_CLI (well not quite programming but fun), insights on functional/object oriented programming concepts, python resources
All of these were quite interesting. I had not discovered these earlier, :smiley:
@Sevansd To continue my earlier comments, while I believe in what you write, I also think the way #mastodon is organised & decentralised, this is a built-in protective mechanism against nonsense as if we choose not to pay attention to what does not interest us, that content will sink to the bottom; relevant content will be boosted by the #hive_mind if you will. So, in the end in our fine tuned local stream we will continue to see more signal than noise.
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you. Mastodon.cloud is maintained by Sujitech, LLC.
