Gah! Finally signed up. I hate it when I do this to myself: I spent all afternoon reading about Mastodon, briefly considered hosting my own instance, realized I don't have enough time for it, researched multiple instances, read some more, considered hosting my own instance again. No wonder I never get anything done...
@jaquer Welcome (at last 😉)!
@mikebabb Heh. Thanks! 😀 I'm gonna hit the hay, but I'll have to spend some time learning the ropes tomorrow. I've had a Twitter for years and literally tweeted twice, so Mastodon already tied that record with this toot.
@jaquer it me! I literally read about it over and over on the other platforms, and finally signed up today! Welcome, and glad to meet your acquaintance! My name is Daniel and work in marketing for a network IT solutions company. I can probably answer any network equipment questions you may have, but nothing on the software/dev side. Followed!
@HummingbirdNetworks I hear you. I'm a DIY kind of guy and that's why I kept looking into VPSs, Dockerfiles, the whole lot. I'll give this one a shot, liking it so far. I see you're new as well. Welcome!
@jaquer likewise, and nice to e-meet you.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
