Casual reminder that #Mastodon is free, open source software, development of which is crowdfunded through Patreon: patreon.com/mastodon

If you care less about development, consider supporting your local instance admin instead (in case of mastodon.social that's still me and link above, YMMV)

List of #Mastodon sponsors: github.com/tootsuite/documenta

Ultimately Mastodon's killer feature is that it's a public good that someone built because they thought it needed to exist and not a startup someone built because they wanted to get rich quick selling other people's data.

@clhendricksbc I have started to use Humanities Commons (hcommons.org/) - it has social features, but is non-commercial and scholar-run. You even get a DOI for everything you upload. Some things are still a bit awkward to use but they are very open to constructive criticism. Once I asked for a few minor features, and they were immediately implemented.
