I think @cfenollosa makes some really good points here, and I couldn't agree more about his thoughts regarding the local timeline. I'm incredibly proud of the community that we've built up here on #Fosstodon.
@mike @cfenollosa agreed. I think based on the HN discussions and my personal desire to have a community feel but still easily seeing info from other instances there is potential feature for multiple local timeliness. Iy would be cool to be able to add other instances to your local timeline (without needing accounts on those instances and switching views), a la subscribing to subreddits.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
