@kev I recommend turning POTENTIALLY into DEFINITELY
@sir I disagree. Fosstodon is a place for FOSS enthusiasts to come together. It isn’t a playground for FOSS elitism or snobbery.
We _should_ use whatever tool we deem to be the most suitable for the job. At the moment, that’s Keybase.
We take a pragmatic approach to which tools we use, not an idealist one.
@sir a number of reasons. Ease of use, features, familiarity with the product, places where you can use it (desktop, mobile etc).
The big one, is the fact that we don't have to maintain it - Mike and I are extremely busy people. We don't have time to maintain a raft of servers and tools. We would rather put that effort into Fosstodon.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
