I decided that a single-player Mastodon instance isn’t ideal. It’s overkill for one person, and it’s lonely! The #local feed is just me shouting to myself. That’s no fun. What’s the point in having a giant Rails app with all sorts of moderation tools, user management, and monthy costs if it’s just me? That’s what I thought, so I’ve moved.
First, I considered heading back to fosstodon.org. The vibe there is kind of what it’s like to be in my head, but it also ends up feeling a little narrow-scoped, if that makes sense, so I decided against it.
Another choice was to join the new Medium instance, but if I did that I’d probably end up posting nothing but listicles about productivity tools and we need zero more of those in the world. So Medium is out.
