We have been asked about the longevity of Fosstodon, especially since a number of key instances have gone.
Hopefully this post will allay any concerns. TL;DR - we got your back!
@Matter @ndegruchy @fosstodon numbers speak for themselves, my view is that mastodon is a unique base (despite being a reaction to Twitter) people tend to create parallel (or copy) apps. I feel we need to leverage (aka purpose) the basic architecture for various collab needs, such as photography (why I am here in the first place, not just tooting my trunk/horn)
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
