@trishussey It is not perfect. It also works. That said, I’m a fan of a few things:

“Done is the engine of more.”
– Manifesto of Done

“Pragmatic Ingenuity”
– Core Value

Sounds like the No Agenda server is cool. I picked because it looked interesting. I'd like to read/see what other instances are like without starting from zero or needing to log in and out all the time.

So, should this be our tagline: NoAgendaSocial, a safe place to toot!

Yes, there is a huge potential for abuse in a multi-login system. But I think it could be a boon for many.

Started reading Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan last night. I stumbled on the title through a blog post or another. Really glad I did. It's starting off quite well.

Now I'd like to find 1) find instances that help discover new books to read and 2) track those instances without having to juggle multiple accounts. It's like Mastodon needs a multi-account system so you can sign into several instances at once. And post/listen to different local timelines.

So Mastodon's apparently gotten large enough that people are wordsearching it, on Twitter, to message people about their Amazing Solutions for the service.

Which means not having word search here means the system is working.

I hate having to feel like everything I say on Bird Website has to be phrased in a specific way.

Certain words attract people I don't want to deal with.

Certain words attract bots and brands looking for $$Engagement$$.

Absolutely none of these people are interested in me or what I have to say. Like, this isn't what I'm on social media for? I want to hear about cool people doing cool things and I want them to be interested in what I do, too.

No Agenda PR: OK, I published some more thoughts on Mastodon and wrapped it around the podcast I did yesterday for Shel Holtz, For Immediate Release. I spend a lot of time in the podcast talking about #NoAgenda and @adam and @Johncdvorak on the hour-long popular PR and communications podcast. I hope I do us justice!

❌ this might not be a hardcore roleplaying instance, but I doubt I'll ever use this account to be anyone other than the magnificent, the effervescent, the humble... Q!

Wait. What if Mastodon is the red pill? Birdsite IS blue after all.

Thinking it would be cool to be able to follow and interact with the local feed of instances that aren't your local. Is exciting to watch, by near impossible to find new conversations. What if, as inspired by @dredmorbius, you could find the cyberpunk book discussion instance & 80s music instance and follow those like a person. @Gargron thoughts?

I guess my local city won't ever take off either

Every lunchroom has its cool kids table...

... and Mastodon is no different. :)

I chose not to eliminate your entire species today.

You're welcome.
