Since mastodon.technology is shutting down soon (thanks for everything, @ashfurrow, and best of luck!), I may look into spinning up a new instance and being an admin.

Stay tuned for more details. I need to do some research.

Update: scanned the install docs, looks a bit long-winded, but not much more complicated than the app I develop at work, haha. I can probably manage to install it.

Still need to do some more research on service providers, like SMTP. Haven’t used an SMTP service before.

Oh, and I need to think up a domain name. Any suggestions?

Theme for the server will probably be something similar to mastodon.technology. General tech/SWE audience, but maybe with a flavor of pro-privacy/anti-adtech?

@cuchaz I heard fedi.monster makes it easier to maintain an instance, in case you want to check it out
