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