I'm seeing a few families that have setup their own Mastodon instance

This is a great alternative to Facebook and something I hadn't considered before. You can now keep tabs on your family and close via their own social network

Are you part of a group of strangers thrown together by the internet and desperately trying to figure out how to build trust and work effectively together on a project of huge strategic importance? You might want to listen to this talk from Richard Sennett... :)

#Mastodon #instance #cooperation #coop

We need more #designers and #UX people involved in #FOSS projects

This was recognised at openusability.org/ where they propose some specfic guidelines for FOSS #developers.

Better UX design is one of the reasons why #Mastodon was more quickly adopted. If FOSS projects want broader user adoption, they have to seriously consider their user experience. Technical functionality and support is only one half of the project.

We'll never replace Adobe with FOSS unless UX is addressed

I have released madonctl 0.3.0 with a few improvements.

madonctl gives you access to the whole Mastodon (1.3) API from the command line:
github.com/McKael/madonctl

Please check the release notes for a small list of changes:
github.com/McKael/madonctl/rel

#mastodon #api #cli #golang #madonctl

For those who wants to change the character limit of their #mastodon instance, here is a quick list of the modifications you need to do :

This is valid for 1.3.1
Feel free to share

After a few weeks of #Mastodon, and being on my own #instance, I still feel like I could #reach more #people. But, #tech posts do get shared and traffic on my blog has increased. I like it a lot more on here compared to #birdsite or #facecrook too for that matter. So, I'll keep following more interesting people, try to toot like I tweeted (work interferes with my ability to go all in, which isn't all that bad 😂).

Come for the pineapple revolution
Stay for the promise of ambiently learning five languages at once
Become ever so slightly more of a furry in the process

Great talk by #pinboard founder and proficient tweeter maciej cieglowski on the #surveillance economy.

Would be great if he was on Mastodon!

@gsora multiple accounts!

Mute specific instances in federated timeline.

Ok Mastodon users, I need your help.

#tootapp is looking better every day, but I want it to be a community project.

I want you to tell me what feature (or features) *you* want on the Android client of your dreams.

Beautiful design (almost done :P), blazing fast scrolling, dank memes (?), everything!

Every boost/reply is appreciated :smile:

Remind me, where was that tool where you select your areas of interest and get a #mastodon #instance recommendation? Or was it a quiz site.

Jetzt muss ich noch erforschen wie ich den Rest der Welt hier finde. Mal gucken ob es klappt. 500 Zeichen sind schon mal super für Kurzromane.
