Just saw that @thunderbird is on here and it made me wonder: does niche somewhat-nerdy technology stand a better chance at success when there are nerdier, more niche communities where they can be incubated and get attention from us? Could Firefox get off the ground today, when the dominant news outlets are shared with Elon Musk and Stephen Colbert and Rihanna, vs. Slashdot and Usenet? Can Mastodon encourage a “geek” technology renaissance?
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!
