Not finding handles for all panelists, in the list compiled by @quinnanya (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15Ak4VHCnr_4Stkzkz-_RhOgX-jCJMt0oq0GN9XXDaKo/edit#gid=229844055) but they're great so far: David Seaman (Syracuse), Mike Furlough (HathiTrust), Martha Neil Smith (University of Maryland), Ken Price (Nebraska), and Will Thomas (Nebraska). I guess they're in the agenda too, but... #digitalhumanities.

This isn't "let's look serious about being vigilant".
This is last time I tagged black people who have explained why they are being made unwelcome in supposedly anti racist Mastodon instances as having important things to say about their experiences of racism on here people tone police them about the way they post. I'm not going to tag them again now. They don't need that shit.
Those of you reading this need to put away your ego read and do the work on correcting yourselves.

I'm really not worried about Mastodon scaling issues at all.
When I left Twitter in 2008, we had roughly twice as many users as the current combined Mastodon network, all running on one MySQL server that had the same specs as a high-end 2013 MacBook Pro, plus roughly 10 web servers and 5 queue servers.
To be fair, growth wasn't as rapid, and we had local-infra advantages over federated systems, but these problems are solvable and I have no doubt will be fixed soon.
*Hugops to all admins!*

Honestly excited and cautiously optimistic about the ongoing #twittermigration to mastodon. Feels like the old days of the web as many have said on here. I also have the sense of having woken up from a bad dream where billionaire man-children had taken control of online speech, even though the web is so essentially decentralized and hackable. Now let’s do #ecommerce! #democracy
