@marcus I considered setting up my own instance before landing on Mastodon.technology. In the end, this is a decentralized platform and not a distributed one. It doesn’t make sense for everyone to run their own instances.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
