The org that doles out .org websites just sold itself to a for-profit company https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/13/20963881/org-domain-name-registry-sold-for-profit-company-public-interest-registry-ethos-capital
The Elder God: been in IT 30 years but still somehow doesn't know how to type properly. A beard, but unironic. Hates technology, doesn't trust WiFi, still uses a Hotmail account, drinks coffee from a mug he hasn't cleaned since he was the Novell Netware 5 admin at that big government contractor across town. Has seven figures in his bank account but won't pay more than a fiver for lunch. More than likely he'll be the IT guy who dies and everyone mourns because he was just there for so long.
I want to be able to tell my friends why #mastodon is better than the birdsite, so I wrote a thing: "Mastodon Is Better than Twitter: Elevator Pitch"
I want this to be as persuasive as possible to outsiders, so I'd appreciate as much feedback as possible from Mastodon users
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
