"Federated Stigmoidoscopy" | Futureland Episode 26
David, Hawthorn, and Tim discuss our interview with Eugen Rochko — newborn tech celebrity (as of yesterday,) and originator of Mastodon, the new federated, open-source social media platform.
Between the night of our first emails to the time of our interview, his mastadon.social instance has doubled in users. Less than two hours after we said our goodbye’s, his name was on The Verge’s front page, just under the new iPad review.
Welcome to Mastodon, Learning from Twitter’s mistakes, Two reasons why organizations should switch to self-hosting social media, and Rochko’s response to Mark Zuckerberg on Medium.
