I am dangerously close to deciding to spin up a Mastodon instance devoted to my podcast (podcast.oddly-influenced.dev/), or – more broadly – to a community for people who read weird things and reflexively think about how to apply them to software.

It would be a distinct, specialized persona for me, and perhaps for others.

Also, I just feel like running a server, for no good reason.

Talk me out of it.


@marick If you feeling like running a server, go forth and admin! YMMV, but I spend a lot more on coffee each month than it would cost to run an instance.
