November 2022

Panel 1
Dave: Honestly, I don’t see why all of the folks worried about Twitter collapsing aren’t just switching over to Mastodon.
Mae: Tell me about Mastodon.

Panel 2
Dave: Honestly, it’s a super cool idea. It’s an open-source, decentralized social network, so there’s no advertising and no worries about the algorithm being messed with.

Panel 3
Dave: It’s actually not ONE network so much as a series of federated servers that all talk to each other, so anyone can create their own instance and decide the rules of how it interacts with the other servers.

Panel 4
Dave: Now, some servers are invite-only, so you have to look at the list of servers to determine which one…
Mae: That’s why.
