folks i'm gonna be real honest with you...

i NEED this Mastodon thing to take off because i just ordered 80,000 of these bumper stickers from the printer, and i can't afford to be caught holdin' my junk if this whole thing fizzles.

please consider my personal commercial interests when choosing a social media platform, thk u!

I have internal funding and approval to offer an 'e-learning 3.0' MOOC this fall (*lots* to cover here). I'll be using gRSShopper to offer it, and participants can use their own gRSShopper instances to take it.

I like to have guests participate in my MOOCs. I have my own ideas, of course, and a good set of topics. But I'd like input. Who would you like to see in the upcoming MOOC? I'm looking for diversity of perspective, new voices, internationalism...

New to Mastodon? Here are four intro guides to help you understand how everything works here. Show more

Hello new folks moving to Mastodon: If you can, look at hosting your own instance (either just for yourself or maybe for you and your family).

@mastohost is awesome

(@indie and @laura are both hosted there and I will move my own self-hosted instance there when I get a moment)

Remember: the more instances there are, the stronger the fediverse is. And wouldn’t it be nice for you to be the one making the rules, exactly as you want them, instead of Jack or some mini-Jack (an instance admin?) ;)

A couple of people from various instances have mentioned that #Mastodon is confusing at first. So I decided to write a comprehensive guide on how to get started with Mastodon.

Hopefully this helps new users to Mastodon. Please do Boost if you feel it could be useful to others.

Universities and research institutes should take a cue from @TUBerlin@twitter.com @theNWU@twitter.com @maxplanckpress@twitter.com & hundreds of others to keep student and researchers' data away from public clouds; better keep it on their own infrastructure with a private #nextcloud...

You absolute muppets @dropbox. You just made it almost impossible to trust what used to be an indispensable research platform.

Taking the LiDA (Learning in a Digital Age) course and loving it.😘 😍

There's a free and open source software project I'm very keen to see continue: Libravatar.org - see this: feeding.cloud.geek.nz/posts/lo Which up-and-coming #FOSS contributor would like to work with a few of us to keep this impressive (surprisingly deep and thorough) project thriving?! I can probably find sponsored #FOSS hosting and technical resources, but I don't have time to take it on myself. Do you?

Invitations to register for our international partners meeting have gone out. You can register via the meeting site: meetings.oeru.org/ (Letters of invitation available here: course.oeru.org/2018-meetings/ )

Good #CLSummit discussion reminding me of this issue:

Requiring your #OpenSource project's consumers & contributors to consent to a 3rd party's Terms of Service to participate is completely antithetical to the principles of Free & Open Source software.

Hi @stevefoerster - I notice that New World University has Project Management listed as one the subjects for your Bachelors in Business Leadership. We're on the verge of launching the OERu's Introduction to Project Management - potentially a course which you learners would find useful. Can send more info if you're interested.
