@halcy cool, if you've got it then great! If you would like someone to help review PRs and manage issues and what-not, let me know.

Does anyone know where I can find a blank for that Tom and jerry meme where he's looking around the corner with a bat, and the second time he looks the mouse is giant?

Hey @halcy I'm planning on talking about Mastodon.py in a talk at PyCon. Is the library still maintained by you? Would you like another maintainer?

I like aleph.land and my current follows quite ok, but I think I want to try other instances with active communities around topics I care about! So this is a request for invites and a solicitation of suggestions - where should I join?
* hackers.town @TheGibson
* wandering.shop @phildini
* space developments, science, and green accelerationism?
* scholar.social ? for paleolinguistics and deep history (human movements and social development from 10k to 100k BP, particularly focussed on currently-submerged cultural areas)

@mattDVD As in "let's all get around the campfire and have one"?

@mishellbaker I know these feels. It would be fascinating to see a study of the UX patterns around twitter/facebook keeping people in their ecosystem, vs google saying "Come if you want"

@gannet thank you for the shared tea! Here's hoping you find all you need to get through the day.

Phildini @ The Shop's choices:

Wandering Shop

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.
