Untitled Goose Game meets Judith Butler in... Gander Trouble

@schuyler1d I will be touching on it, but not for very long (40 minutes is not a long time)

@anildash my general advice is to think about it in material terms -- if you join a server, talk to the admins ahead of time and come to an agreement like "Hey, me being here is going to result in you having a lot more traffic. You currently make $X/mo in donations from your users. I will chip in an addition $Y/mo so you can afford the next tier of VPS upgrade you'll need to host me" (or whatever)

@galaxis Yup, I went from mastodon dot social to my own solo instance hosted on my personal domain to running this server!

@benbrown is it, though? I think he specifically wants a single Mastodon account running on server hardware that hosts many accounts, so it has the benefits of a well-federated server and a local timeline. Multi-tenancy as described here: github.com/hometown-fork/homet

@evan @anildash (and truly I wonder is it lonely, especially these days with a lot more people here)

@evan @anildash Is it lonely, though? My solo instance was such a bummer to be on that I started Friend Camp specifically because I was tired of flying solo and having no local timeline

There will not be a recording of this session -- in part because it's my first time running it! Don't worry, there will be plenty of asynchronous content around this available in the near future, just not a recording of this one.

@Eliot_L Probably not -- there will be some recorded output from this but likely not a straight-up recording of the session. (Maybe a future recorded session after I get feedback on how helpful/unhelpful this was from attendees.)

@anildash So at the moment the only solutions to having it on your own domain are single-user servers, either with Mastodon or other software.

@anildash You can't alias a single account to your own domain at the moment. There is discussion of that being a future feature here: github.com/hometown-fork/homet

@OhRen Probably not -- there will be some recorded output from this but likely not a straight-up recording of the session. (Maybe a future recorded session after I get feedback on how helpful/unhelpful this was from attendees.)

If you work at an organization for public benefit and have thought "I wish more people here knew what was going on in the fediverse" ... you should pass this on to them!

I'm hosting a webinar about trust and safety on the fediverse this Thursday, Dec 8th at 12pm Eastern. It's an introduction to the state of content moderation and community safety here.

I hope it will be useful to people at civil society organizations who have perhaps heard about Mastodon and the fediverse and would like to know more about where there are gaps in funding and services, and places where orgs could potentially help augment what's already happening.

I feel like I've said this a bunch but I also know that lots of people don't actually know this yet: Flash Forward is ending for good at the end of the year. Here's a post about that and what comes next: flashforwardpod.com/2022/12/05

@sue that's probably the one I was thinking of, and this is a bit different
