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!
@wogan @email@example.com lol, somehow I read that as 30 seconds. I guess I was seeing things.
Oh, nice - someone has already started an Ansible playbook for bringing up a Mastodon instance. https://github.com/ceejbot/mastodon-ansible
@firstname.lastname@example.org @wogan Great article, and the only one like it that I have seen! Although... 15 minutes might be a more accurate estimate than 30 seconds. :) If someone would make a Vagrantfile that works with different providers, or an Ansible playbook.... then we might be in 30 second territory. I would love to have some time to follow this tutorial, and then try that afterwards.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
