Worried about the dominance of big instances? No, really, this is quite natural.
As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of #Mastodon instances roughly follows Zipf's law.
At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.
@Stoori i know my instance (under 15,000) got a fair amount while we had open registrations, so they’re definitely not /just/ targeting huge instances
