Every road I can take to work is under construction. There is no public transit, no bike infrastructure. I am trapped by the freedom of my car.

"Right, we have finalised the three laws of robotics."
"I'm pretty sure that's been-"

"That's not-"
"Second: A robot has full autonomy over its body."

Vous conseillez quoi en app mobile pour Mastodon ?

Dear new users:

It's alright to take your time and get up to speed on here. You don't have to hit the ground running. You might have picked up the habit of interacting with social media as it it were naturally a competitive performance--we all did--but the best thing about Mastodon and the fediverse beyond it is that it's not like that. Take some time to decompress.

It took me about six months to fully drop the armor that I'd been wearing from being on other sites. That was three years ago. This place changes lives.

Also, it's okay to be picky. Sign up at a new instance, if the first one you pick isn't the best fit possible. You'll find your home, and folks here understand it takes trial and error.

Above all, take a deep breath. What feels weird now will make sense pretty quickly.

Glad to have you.
