It’s been a fun afternoon of discussions at IndieWebCamp 2020 Austin today.
I just led a breakout discussion about what we can do to reclaim our personal data from social media silos #reclaimyourweb

My wife and I tried out climbing at Austin Bouldering Project last Friday. It was a blast! https://austinboulderingproject.com
I just started reading the book Atomic Habits by James Clear. I appreciate his attention to detail and willingness to be open about the complexities behind his British Cycling example in the first chapter. Read his update here. https://atomichabits.com
I’m getting excited about Play Date, an upcoming handheld video game system from Panic. They released an update and things are looking really good for a release later this year! https://play.date/
Prediction: Mastodon will likely outlast Twitter.
Historically, decentralized, open-source platforms and protocols with any adoption run forever, even if they rarely reach the popularity or cultural relevance of centralized platforms.
It seems likely to me that when Twitter eventually shuts down, people will still be running Mastodon instances.
Did you know Diaspora has 328 active nodes and 17k users? Hell, there are 3,652 active FidoNet nodes, and that started in 1984!
So... am I wrong?

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!
