People in the know: What is the current best Mastodon app for Android?

Must have: multi-user support

I'm currently using Mastalab, which is mostly fine, sorta clunky

Is there something better?

What is a good, casual, relatively quick two player boardgame?

Please boost widely: Call for Proposals, "After Social Media: Alternatives, New Beginnings, and Socialized Media." It's a call for research/essays on alternative social media, including Mastodon, of course. robertwgehl.org/blog.php#2017-

I want to do a bit of research on opinions on federation for my #decentwebeu project. I'm digging for arguments in favor of decentralising. Please boost and/or answer any of these questions:

1) How aware are you of the federated nature of this network in your day-to-day use?

2) Which, if any, concepts of federated networks do you find challenging, confusing or foreign?

3) Why are federated networks "better" than centralised social networks (silos)?

(The last question is biased, roll with it)

Art question (for my daughter)

Can anyone think of any images that demonstrate the concept of 'mind / body'

My daughter needs a philosophical stimulus for a project.. Thanks!

I'm teaching metaethics soon. I'm wondering a bit about when people started to worry about the nature of moral properties. This has been prompted a bit by teaching virtue ethics and G. E. M. Anscombe's 'Modern moral philosophy' last week.
