I'll tell you what we need for Mastodon : a real-time map showing instances and toot flows between them.

I've written 'toot', a very simple command-line utility to allow Mastodon posts to be sent from the command-line: npmjs.com/package/toot

"Nobody can create a worse PR situation than Pepsi"

United Airlines : "hold my beer ya'll"

What if Syria/Russia bombed us for the dirty water in Michigan or gassing natives in standing rock?

Definitely a Monday. Fixed it by running dnf update.

Facts : Nobody is using capitalism.party

My analysis : Capitalism is a failure

Thanks for reading.

Every Sys admin on their first day of work:

"Your shit sucks. "

"I get paid to make shit suck less"

"Lets make this shit suck less"

Monday morning. Clients server is spitting out about 1MB a minute in log files, all the same line, over and over again. Help me frank ocean. You're my only hope.

Instagram: My life is a party.

Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show.

Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: We're all going to die.

Mastodon: Don't worry, while we are on a quirky, meandering path towards an inevitable apocalypse, we might as well enjoy the ride and show eachother some love in an unorthodox, yet irresistible manner, not in any way hindered by considerations of style, identity or consistency.

It is easy to go to war with other countries. It is not so easy to comprehend the unintended consequences of that war.

Dear Fellow Anglophones,

People are allowed to speak their own language in public. We do not own the internet.

I repeat:

WE DO NOT OWN THE INTERNET.

Sheesh!

Dear Francophones (and other non-anglophones)

I'd say "feel free to carry on" but you don't need my permission.

I am sorry people are jerks though.

It's fun watching everyone try and explain why Mastodon will fail.

Like for some reason it's a bad thing to support a startup.

There should be a "sticky" style column here with a few notes for noobs like me. Explaining what the hell this, how it works etc... Sort of like the sidebar of subreddits.

If this is decentralized, does that mean sys admins are more powerful or less powerful? 🤔

All social media will be judge based on how easy it is to find washed up celebrities.
