I finished my stint as a Mozilla Fellow and now I'm relaunching my Patreon with a focus on, well, fixing social media.

This means I'm going to continue my concerted work trying to make the fediverse a better place, in the form of best practice guides for running instances, external advocacy, and technical tutorials and training so that more people can contribute software to the fediverse at large.

You can read a partial summary of my work so far at my new Patreon page!

Oh, and I'm releasing my own fork of Mastodon based on my experiences running Friend Camp for a year. It's called Hometown, and you can read more about it here:

github.com/hometown-fork/homet

It's not fully documented yet but it will be. Experienced Mastodon admins should be able to switch over with a minor database migration and minimal fuss.

@darius this is really cool! I've actually been thinking a lot about making a decentralized discord/slack thing in this same small-locally-operated style (not anytime soon, maybe starting next year) and would love to chat with you abt what you're learning sometime.

@clarity Happy to! You know how to find me and I'm always down for coffee :)

Friend Camp

Hometown is adapted from Mastodon, a decentralized social network with no ads, no corporate surveillance, and ethical design.
