Gardening and DIY are important not just because it gives people more independence and saves them money, but because it de-alienates them from their labor. There are few types of propaganda more potent than excitedly checking your peppers several times a day and thinking to yourself, "what if all work was this fulfilling"

NOTE TO NEW USERS:
Mastodon's a cool place, but it's private like a local coffee shop, not a home bathroom.
Remember that the admin of your instance can see EVERYTHING you post, including direct posts. They can even disable 2 factor authentication, if you have it enabled (and you should. No really, enable that stuff now.)
Bottom line: Find an instance where you feel you can trust your admin, and don't send direct toots unless you trust the admin at the recipient's instance as well.

Every time I join a new social network, I think about „Liminality and Communitas in Social Media: The Case of Twitter“ by Jana Herwig.
She uses Victor Turners model to describe how joining a new platform is a separation from society, striping the person of previous social status and forcing them to grow before re-joining society.

@Luca @vanderZwan I made some huuuuge plots with instance names for a visual insepction of the clustering. Just look how perfectly pixelfed.social stands out at the bottom of the scores plot. And in the t-SNE plot you see on the far right peertube and its associated servers *_*.
