For all the hate the federated timeline gets, it's probably the most human. When you're there at the top, someone somewhere is reaching out to anyone anywhere and for a moment, that's you.
You might not understand them and you might not know what they're going through, but you hear them.
For a moment-- across space --you're united with a stranger in time. That's simply unfathomable.
@tychi Feels like i just switched lanes on the internet by discovering Mastodon😎 What a time to be alive! Sending good vibes and ❤️ From the internet
@happy_stringtime Welcome to the party!
Certain corners can feel like the old ways, but drive in the opposite direction and you'll find cool people.
Ignoring, muting, and blocking are your friend here :)
@aspie4K @tychi @happy_stringtime @pleiades Will do! The world out there makes me political but it's so frustrating. That's why I'm on Fosstodon because I like and respect open source even though I haven't got a clue about creating any. Even if I can't relate to much of the techie stuff people talk about, at least I can see they care and there's hope as we go more into the digital age.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
