I am cofounder of a small no profit association for space outreach in Italy (started off as a forum, then became an association to better manage the activities and the resources).

We have a Linkedin page, for... actually, for no good reason.
Now somebody pointed out to me that linked is putting our name and logo on job offers that have NOTHING to do with us, just because a company has the same name.

Chin up ISRO. The moon is a harsh mistress.
Keep on trying.

Somehow I planned to go swimming with a friend. At 7.30.

When I read about the Mastodon 'night crew' I feel like those bus drivers, waking up at 4 am to take their shift at 5 and driving around drunken party people from the night before.

Being followed by a faceless and silent avatar is creepy.
Here’s my suggestion for newbies: set a picture and write at least one, preferably four posts that tell us something about yourself, about what to expect.
If you follow me, I will look at your profile and maybe I’ll follow back. But I’m not following a faceless and silent avatar.
