There's a passive kind of collaboration that's going on with (in addition to other more active and deliberate modes of cooperation), but it's no less important than other cooperative activities. It's important to have a context and a general sense of direction in a space where some common ideas are understood.

@mayel @samtoland I only have access to some basic stats, but we currently have 243 user accounts on the who've tooted 5,279 times, and we're federated with 669 other .

I check the new user applications 2-3x a day, and I'd say we're averaging about 5 new a day, most of whom I let in as long as they provide a minimum amount of info beyond just user name and email...

Hey @mattcropp and @mayel - any juicy stats to share with us?

Re: new users etc. - starting to see more and more new faces.
