From birdsite: "The CEO of GoFundMe recently confirmed one third of GoFundMe campaigns are to pay medical bills. Feel free to look up exact statistics but essentially GoFundMe has become one of the biggest insurers in the country. What does that say about our healthcare system?"

After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename β€˜instances’ to β€˜Communities.’

Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.

I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).

hello I'm just really enjoying the updates to my instance's theme and I want you all to enjoy it too so here is a non-mobile-view screenshot thanks

I've started having a better time on Mastodon/Fediverse by treating this like early Twitter: I try to follow back everyone in order to fill my timeline with stuff. I aggressively follow anyone when I see a boost of something they wrote that I like. I am going to start doing the ol' Follow Friday thing to help other people find people. I follow a lot of people I know *NOTHING* about but it's finally lively enough to keep me engaged.

All the #distributed, #federated #webapps in the world don't matter if they're prohibitively hard for people to run (ie #selfhost!).

That's how most of the world's #email ended up owned by #Google and #Microsoft.

So it's almost criminal that the leading #FOSS #selfhosting platform @yunohost is only getting €9.63 a week from their #Liberapay.

We can do better! Let's make it easy for everyone to host #Mastodon, #Peertube, #Wordpress, #Pixelfed etc!

Go, #Fediverse! Go!
