@nolan Good thing fediverse doesn't live or die based on business case, and IMO it's better if it *doesn't* become the everything-to-everyone social network, from both a technical and community scaling perspective.

@cnx @giffengrabber qoto.org seems great to but haven’t been there so I can’t tell

@giffengrabber, as for the criteria, I looked for federation (with both sides of the political spectrum), size (not too many users for effective administration but not too few so that local timeline is still interesting) and technology (no cloud flare, yes glitch for markdown composition).

Question to my followers:

Which is the best Mastodon instance out there?

Asking for my English-speaking friends – as for me, I really really like it here at Mastodon.se

What’s your experience?

On of the Slack communities I frequent has a large chunk of it’s members living on the US west coast. A bit frustrating since they all are asleep now 🙂

Stuff like this is why I love Unix:

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
