This tree is named Hyperion. Standing at a height of 115.61 metres, it is Earth's tallest known living tree.

Hyperion is a coast redwood (sequoia sempervirens) and it lives somewhere in Redwood National Park in California. The exact location is remote, and is being kept secret to avoid any potential ecological damage or vandalism which too many visitors might bring.

"Hardly anyone is normal. You'll be different some way."
"I hope so."

The social network #ScuttleButt is unusual:

-You can view and post messages while offline. It updates when a connection is next available.

-It optionally supports #MeshNetworks, so you can connect to others without the internet.

It's still quite tricky to use, but a new app called #ManyVerse is trying to make it easier:


Currently on Android (on Play and soon F-Droid), with iOS and desktop Win/Mac/Linux on the way.
