Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Other people like Ronald Cramer (doing his PhD there too) and David Chaum. Visitors from around the world. Learned about quantum computing and Byzantine agreement (and a little bit of cryptography). I consider myself extremely lucky to have started my career there. /2

Perhaps scholar.social should get added to the Academics tab? That is empty now.

Hm.. it seems this instance (scholar.social) cannot be accessed using the app. At least, it is not listed there as an option to select to log in to.

@Marleen Welcome back! Hopefully we will all make the jump to Mastodon for real, this time around.

There's a bunch of other official accounts:


@bipolaron @xot @socrates So, the bit about creating an alias in the new one, which it said you have to do first, isn't needed any more?

@xot @socrates Glad I'm not the only one ... I've not seen any updated information so hopefully @bipolaron will get back with their solution.

"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.”
