An interesting difference b/t the of .social & (which is brand spanking new) is that 's has a much higher signal:noise ratio due to being less fully networked to the . 's timeline is about 90% languages I don't know, while is about 90% I do.

Be curious to see if a certain scale means we'll be connected to most of the Fediverse, or if our niche will insulate compared to's role as a hub.


@mattcropp Yeah, I would like to see the fediverse a bit more integreated. But it does certainly incentivize more community-based, high-bar-to-entry (if $1/month is high) nodes, as opposed to the big free-for-all ones.

Sign in to participate in the conversation is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
