A year ago when I joined Mastodon, I promised a write-up on how Micro.blog was different. I always threw out the draft posts because they felt too competitive. Today I reframed it around how to find our way out of the problems with massive social networks: https://manton.org/2018/09/07/the-way-out.html
I’m a software engineer and singer living in Pittsburgh, PA. I work for New Relic and sing with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh.
