Hey everyone! I'm a solo programmer, currently working on https://1feed.app. It's my attempt to bring the pleasures of RSS to a more mainstream audience and help people take back their attention :)
As part of that, I want to support the open web and decentralised platforms, so I've made this Mastodon account, and I'll be posting all future tweets here as well!
@booligoosh Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.
The custom emoji list is here:

Good luck and have fun.
@booligoosh Your 1feed app looked interesting and I went to sign up, but the only option was to DM you on Twitter (which I don't use). Any chance you add a Mastodon button?
@rsheftel I've added you to the waitlist! I'm actually planning on letting a bunch of people in this afternoon so you should get access in a few hours (I'll message you here).
The Twitter button was just a quick way for me to throw up a landing page without having to build a whole staged invite system, but I'm actually going to be removing it in a few days and replacing it with a normal sign up button!
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
