Hello Mastodonians (is that what you call yourselves?),
I am new to these lands, just migrated from the evil Zuckerland, so please be kind. Am a computer scientist at the University of St Andrews with an interest in, broadly, computers and society and participatory design.
Upcoming project is an investigation into the role that software engineering methods play in shaping technologies and their social impact, focusing on human rights.
@AlexVoss welcome aboard!
Welcome Alex, hope you enjoy the community!
@AlexVoss This is the real community behind everything our world needs for good 👍
Social commons, free software, no censorship, and a lot of respect 😃
@AlexVoss Welcome to the party!
@AlexVoss Clearly you're a wise man:). Welcome to the fediverse, there are so many other projects here to explore, Mastodon is the gateway drug.
@AlexVoss welcome aboard
Not all of the folks who see this will be on Mastodon, BTW. The Fediverse shares a _little_ bit better than that.
@AlexVoss welcome to Mastodon which is an excellent microblogging alternative to Twitter with only lots of benefits. You may also want to dip into a peer-to-peer type social network as well at https://scuttlebutt.nz. Hubzilla & Friendica would be the more direct decentralised equivalents of Zuckerland.
@AlexVoss you sound really cool lol, welcome to fedi .
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
