forgot mastodon existed for a few days and now I am back. what's up how's everyones monday?

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

its wild being on here cuz I realize how much of my approach to posting on was through the lens of 'how do I make this a viral'

I don't feel that at all here and frankly? it feels good

how can I quickly follow people from other instances without needing to do the whole type your username --> "click to follow" --> "follow" flow??

any other on here? I stream a show called Help Wanted - its basically a live podcast where we bring on funny + cool guests and try to help them with their real problems. We usually fail to help but we laugh and its a good time for all.

digging this walkthru of mastodon from @twisterghost

"On Mastodon, a simple “hello, this is who I am!” post on an account with zero followers can still gain traction and help get you connected with others. People engage far more often with the content in their feed. It is a welcoming, collaborative and unapologetically human space. I cannot emphasize this enough: we're all just vibing over here."

wanted to share a piece about how it feels to watch from afar as your homeland is attacked...it was written a few days after the war started but I still think applies

@alexdobrenko
The server (instance) does affect what you see to some extent but they are mainly like gateways to the network.

as a creative, twitter has become my linkedin - you can't really leave.

buuuut it does leave room for a new place to goof around and actually hang. maybe that's here?

ok so this might be dumb but - does it matter what server we choose? Like I am on mas.to but does that mean anything in terms of what I see or can post on and engage with?

I was looking through other servers here mastodon.social/ and my brain is like "ooooh i wanna be part of all of them" lol - can someone help me wwrap my head around this?

mastodon feels like an escape room - you gotta figure out how it all works once you're inside it - except I may not ever wanna leave?

And finally I write about creativity, being a dad, etc on Substack and Medium
