If you've got some spare time today, you're new to the #Fediverse, and just went with mastodon.social as the default option, why not explore some other instances?
You can do this by:
1. Going to https://joinmastodon.org/communities and browsing
2. Checking out which instances your existing friends / new contacts are on
3. Searching hashtags relevant to you and seeing common instances people tend to be on who use those hashtags
4. Asking people to recommend an instance based on interests you state

We'd like to invite you to our new monthly community call on tools, workflows, projects and ideas related to scholarly single-source publishing!
@aral Had time to inspect your Small Web project site.js yesterday for the first time: great initiative! Also thanks for the hint to ngrok. Will try both in class next week.
I especially like the idea of the class room as a micro public space, publics (plural) in general and the "ungrading project".
Also, the discussion on the relationship of research and teaching made me think.
Good morning @Downes! I'm in the middle of planning my autumn course on "Architectures of the Web". Ball's Metaverse, the Fediverse and the Old Web are topics I want to deal with hands-on using Beaker browser, IPFS, Raspberry and static site generators.
I know that you also had courses on the distributed/decentralized web in the past. Do you have any key learnings from your work with students?
Excited to announce the next @email@example.com & blinry project: ✨ The Everything Exhibition ✨, a generator that creates virtual 3D exhibitions for any topic, based on open data. Supported by the @firstname.lastname@example.org!

Took some time and set up a space to aggregate and curate scientific communities and topics on #Matrix. It can be hard to find good, serious communities relevant to your interests, so this is my initiative to make it easier.
For anyone interested, you can find the space via this link: https://matrix.to/#/!lBZPyclsQiWAwbHjTk:matrix.org?via=matrix.org&via=nordgedanken.dev&via=t2bot.io
Boosts are welcome. Would be nice if this could be a thing, especially given the experimental support for LaTeX in Element's composer it could be of some interest to scientific communities.
