10/10 what to do after the movies
So 1.3 out of 100 of you got all excited about this thing called the #fediverse. How do you join?
You can first have a look at https://joinmastodon.org. A good place to get started. Mastodon is relatively easy to use, the servers listed there have solid moderation policies and are well connected. As you get used to the fediverse and become aware of more specific communities you find interesting, you can just migrate your account in one click and move over!
If you are interested in joining post.lurk.org contact the organizers of The Hmm as they have a bunch of invite codes to give out.
If you are the administrator of an instance and are willing to host some newcomers, reply to this thread!
If you're interested to know more about the potential and caveats of the fedi, we wrote down some reflections in the following essay: https://monoskop.org/images/c/cc/Mansoux_Aymeric_Abbing_Roel_Roscam_2020_Seven_Theses_on_the_Fediverse_and_the_Becoming_of_FLOSS.pdf
@firstname.lastname@example.org wrote also on how to build alternative social media communities: https://runyourown.social/
Last but not least, thanks to the Hmm for inviting us for this presentation and thanks to all you who participated!
We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
