Just joined! Glad to be part of this!

I discovered Mastodon after reading about the "Re-decentralizing the Internet" movement. It hit me right on the nose. Being a developer who's worked in media and ad tech, and someone with kids, I'm concerned about the direction we seem to be moving in. Joining this community is my first small step towards decentralization of my "personal infrastructure" and taking back ownership of our data and privacy.

Twitter got the axe this week. The LinuxRocks Mastodon instance is my only social media now. Also, good morning 🙂.

Hey all, I'm new here. Looking forward to testing out Mastodon again. Been using Linux for well over a decade; wrote "openSUSE Linux Unleashed" awhile back. Who's using openSUSE here? .

Hello Mastodon people! I'm new and very excited to be here!
I like the idea of how computing and now even social networking (thanks to mastodon) can be done better using open source ideology.
I'm a science enthusiast(esp. physics) and a mechanical engineering major, and always try to adopt open source ideology into my working field and academia.
I also think, science and education in general is done better through open source models.

First toot! Looking forward to a decentralized social media experience.

#2105 "Modern OSI Model" 

In retrospect, I shouldn't have used each layer of the OSI model as one of my horcruxes.
