TIL Russia made a ripoff of The Martian where they just fucking the survivor on Mars to die.

:mastodon: Mastodon tip: you can customize a column to list multiple hashtags (and block-list some of them too). It's a good way to discover all the posts gravitating around the topics you like (eg. for art, #mastoart is a popular one). That's really a feature I love here and wanted to share it to newcomers.

The new user influx is finally pushing me to seriously think about setting up my own instance. I'm not sure I want to use

If you host a small (1-20 user) Mastodon instance, I'd love to hear about your setup!

(please boost)

Just a reminder that Twitter perceives the Fediverse as a threat, and their project Blue Sky is actively spreading FUD about ActivityPub on their website.

Reposting my #introduction with the hashtag this time! ✨

Like many others, I'm trying this place out given the recent Twitter news!

So, hi! I'm Ryan - better known as Toadsanime on Twitter (RIP my verification badge).

I work in #gaming as marketing director at Super Rare Games, where I also do some biz dev stuff + created the Mixtape, a physical compilation of #indiegames!

I'm previously a games journo, a BAFTA Games judge, and am mostly known on #Twitter for sharing #videogame #news 👋

I think what makes sense is encouraging people to start a federated instance when otherwise they'd open a discord server or web forum.

Obviously this takes resources and it would be nice to see more services that make it as turnkey as Discord, or Squarespace as a paid example.

Looking for more Indy Left peeps who have migrated from Da Twitter to follow. I do follow back, unless you don't want me to.

Like, there's an open source Instagram alternative called Pixelfed, that's part of the Fediverse. Which means if you're part of a Pixelfed community and I'm part of a Mastodon or Pleroma community we can still follow and interact with each other.

That's just very unlike how social media works right now.
But right now the primary means of sharing content from one social media platform to another is a screenshot, which would be hard to explain in a world where federated social media was the norm.

Looking at Federated social media it's easy to get really excited about it, because it's more like an actual "metaverse" than anything else by that name, and it's decentralized in a way crypto bros can only wish crypto and "Web3" would be.

But it's weirdly complicated in a variety of ways and there's multiple competing clients none of which are particularly intuitive and nobody used to centralized social media gets the "overlapping bubbles" nature of the Fediverse.

So far the best thing about Mastodon is a general lack of crypto bros.

Are we done talking about that one space jerk for a minute? Let’s talk about my cool box. I like this box


New art style experiment with a fan art of Shadow the Hedgehog.

It's kind of surreal returning to draw Sonic fan art after a 10 year long hiatus. 🥺 I honestly missed doing that.
