I know I'm in a bit of a bubble but since the whole thing that got me into #ruby development was to contribute to #diaspora I was shocked when no one I talked to at #rubyconf has heard of #mastodon and the one person that heard of #diaspora thought it died a long time ago. I knew we had work to do on getting the #fediverse profile bumped up but still shocked at the lack of awareness of it here. Going to put my thinking cap on on this topic...
@hankg Kind of doing a similar thing. Hoping I can get my college interested in Mastodon...
@hankg One way would be for popular organisations to start using it exclusively or at least in parallel to twitter and the like.
@mosselman Yeah getting organizations to start adding that handle to their contact data would be a big profile booster too.
