Mastodon's federated network got me nostalgic about BBSs in the 90s.
Peek my BBS Software from '93 with ANSIs converted to PNGs. A smaller world than the www and social apps that we use today, but so much the same.
This is a good thing, and something I was hoping we'd see soon!

Generalistic and moderated instance.
