Ok so we are doing a very unstructured exploration of the fediverse tomorrow with around 40 people in berlin. What should they see? Where should they go? Give me your last minute ideas.

@liaizon here's the outline I used for my talk earlier this month: https://p.hagelb.org/outline.md.html

I had a 2-hour speaking slot so I was kind of all over the place and did a lot of Q&A/discussion with the audience so your situation might not be the same.

@technomancy @rra did you see this? just saw it now. would have been useful!

@liaizon
interact with several Mastodon - GNUSocial, Peertube and Pixelfed accounts in one session.

@liaizon since I imagine they'll be net.art fans, take a tour of botsin.space, dolphin.town, and oulipo.social

@dajbelshaw really unknown. Probably half art students and half random tech hipsters

@liaizon Well, I find with these things it's always a balance between showing them to hook their attentions, and starting from first principles.

A homely metaphor helps, as does a problem statement to open up their minds to accept something new.

@liaizon bsd.network - a BSD-themed instance

social.coop - an instance run as a cooperative

scholar.social - an instance for academics folks

chaos.social - a CCC instance

mastodon.sdf.org - an artistic, UNIX-themed instance (see cosmic.voyage)

misskey.luciferi.st - a luciferist Misskey instance

mastodon.mit.edu - the MIT instance, for MIT students

mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr - maintained by the French government

@carachrone Thanks! I had most of these but I forgot about the french gov one thats good to mention!

@liaizon art students might get a kick out of the idea that something like oulipo.social/about (the "no posts may contain the letter e" instance) can exist on the fediverse as just another instance

@liaizon Definitely snouts dot online, since that's a pretty large portion of Mastodon in general.

@liaizon Def. go beyond mastodon... I'd even say beyond activitypub for that matter. different projects/protocols for different use cases.
sure an (visual) art student may be interested in pixelfed for showcasing their work, but maybe socialhome is better suited to their particular intent.
