For those who are #NewHere, I'd like share another aspect of #mastodon that brought many of us here much before the current wave. Mastodon is Free Software (sometimes called as Open Source or Free and Open Source Software). It means anyone is Free to use, study, modify and share the software. This means we are not dependent on any single entity (person, company, country...) and we can be self-reliant.
@praveen hi Praveen. I remember your talk from hackbeach about alternatives. Would be good for you to do a separate thread here right now because many from India are looking for big tech alternatives
I always mention Michael Corleone from Mario Puso's Godfather. He was not involved in the mafia activities till he got hit on the face by a police officer. Most people usually don't care as long some one they don't know is suffering. So when someone they know gets hit, they wake up. Same for #Scribus migration, it started when some news papers got fined by Adobe.
