@alaric @pluralistic As an illustration of this point -- I originally created this account int 2018 (I forget the impetus...maybe some scandal with Facebook). At the time, I didn't find much content that interested me, and I wasn't really into micro-blogging anyway, so my account sat idle for a few years. When Musk took over Twitter and drove off many people, I came back to Mastodon and found a lot more activity and have stayed active myself. I've also heard that some big institutions are exploring adding more support for Mastodon- they move slowly by nature, but I am looking forward to when they come fully on board.

ok as long as we get Tom Cruise to service all these ocean recycling plants.

I love 'enshittification' as a word. It could be applied to so many aspects of life in the UK. We're in a terminal decline, watched by laughing toffs from the private boxes of our very own 'Theatre of Nightmares'.

Unless, of course, we begin deshittifying. Starting with the toffs-in-charge.

If you've noticed being offline a few evenings this week, it was actually under DDOS those nights. When I asked, I was told the best way to help with Mastosoc's scaling and resiliency-under-pressure issues would be to help them fill this open job posting for a devops position with Mastodon gGMBH:

If you know anyone who might be qualified for this position, pass it on!

This is so distressing. Why was this obviously very ill man not transferred to a mental hospital? Disgraceful and wrong that he was kept in prison and took his own life
