Kid mused about the possibility of a youtube channel that only showed coffee. So I told him about the original webcam that monitored a break room coffee pot for years. And of course from there we ended up on the joke RFC for Hypertext Coffee Pot Control Protocol, which also introduced the error code 418 I'm a teapot (whose response body MAY be short and stout).
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
