Alas, it would seem that I have yet again abandoned Mastodon. I feel bad about it because I believe in the federation and I want to support a healthy community, but I just don't feel a strong desire for extensive social media in my life right now. I so successfully purged FB and Twitter long ago that diving back in feels like sacrificing too much of my time and attention, which are in short supply right now. I may be back someday, but for now it's probably gonna be only very sporadic.
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.
We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
