Me, an idiot: *checks into doesn't follow anyone, forgets to turn on the local timeline, thinks this place is dead.*

Welp, got that straightened out. Gonna try not to be such a noob anymore.

@al Welcome! It's still pretty quiet on this instance, but I always compare the (Mastodon) to c.2007-2008, when there was some real fun and novelty to finding the use cases and creating a community.

I remember going to and using hashtags to create real time back-channels that connected the entire conference.

With the ability to follow people (not just topics), I can see, eventually, .social connecting the community even closer than and forums.

@JT thanks! Looking forward to this community's growth.
