👴 OK kids...

Before #Mastodon, before #socialMedia, before the #Web, we had the #BBS.

If you wanna learn from those who came before, here's a comprehensive 5-hour #documentary about bulletin board systems. 🤓

(Of course, given the world back then it's mostly 5 hours of old white guys. So it goes!)


@downey Good memories. First time I met online friends IRL was when my favorite BBS organized a meet up.

A sincere tip for longtime fediverse people who would like their friends to stick around here longer than a week:

If you're on Mastodon or Hometown, you can click the "bell" icon in the profile of someone you follow. This will make it so that every time they post, it will appear in your notifications like an "@". I am enabling this temporarily for friends so that I remember to interact with them. This is important for making this place feel more lively and helps people stick around!

For those of you who are coming from Twitter expecting a Twitter replacement or Twitter killer:

Mastodon may have a twitter like interface on the surface, but at it's core it's a completely different animal.

If you came here expecting Mastodon to be just like twitter your expectations will fall flat.

Treat it like something completely new and different. Take time to get to know each other.

reminded of Here I Stand, the only board game that simulates the Protestant Reformation from 1517 to 1555 in enough detail to require a Henry's Wives' Pregnancy Chart and Excommunication Cubes

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to. nlnet.nl/project/Gitea/

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.
