Thundering Herd of Mastodon

In 2017 I set up a Mastodon account on to explore that federated micro-blogging experience and basically did nothing with it.

Fast-forward to 2022 and Mastodon is hawt due to billionaire-inflicted decay at twitter and now I get to be a little smug, if I want. I think I deserve that, a bit.

I just migrated to a local instance for local people, to avoid the incomprehensible firehose that is the dot social local timeline.

Of course, I forgot entirely that the geniuses at this venue have already built in ActivityPub protocol into, and I effectively have a “mastodon account” right here - you can see it from the mastodon web app

I am not sure what to do with this information at this time.
