The FCC blocking China Mobile from operating in the USA is huge https://www.axios.com/fcc-blocks-china-mobile-national-security-concerns-7eb85e53-4a71-47d4-8759-5eb8dd5979c9.html
Things are getting shaky...
A baker's dozen of y'all signed up and I love ya for it. Thanks for helping me get the ball rolling with tinyfed.com
It's crystal clear that more needs to be done to encourage new mastodon users to find people to follow and stick around, but regardless people are at least interested enough to register which is so cool. A fine start if you ask me!
The launch explainer video is live on my old social media profiles. Anyone joining, be sure to find 5-10 accounts to follow or else you won't see new posts and it won't be interesting. Maybe find one person you think is interesting and follow some people they follow.

Also tomorrow morning I plan to "launch" tinyfed! For now this basically just amounts to me posting the following explainer video on my currently dormant social media profiles and seeing if anyone is interested. LMK if you have any feedback on the video or the concept for the instance
Adam Neely’s new video with sax player/bandleader Patrick Bartley is such a perfect synopsis of the very `music/composition nerd` place my love for Nakata’s music and Japanese music in general comes from https://youtu.be/gFXcwv9XISc
Happy mayday from Minneapolis! https://hobt.org/mayday/
Just linked my keybase.io to this account... very nifty that it works but I'm unconvinced keybase is the best way to solve the problems it's trying to solve. Social graph construction/identity are extremely unsolved problem in the fediverse. Dunno know how this gets solved in an elegant way without centralization. Tough to compete with a world where your @ on insta is the end-all-be-all for a digital point of contact. How/when could a fediverse account be given verbally to a new acquaintance?
Staying up for the Perfume Coachella livestream was 110% worth it https://twitter.com/rizzle_d/status/1120234054870155266
Tinyfed has been updated to mastodon v2.8.0 🎉 https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
Been loving Eric Mayson's mini song series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l0lHFyn3xA
DAOKO is great. Glad nakata did a collab with her or else I never woulda seen her stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsl8HS_lVHE
Nakata's Madeon remix was probably one of the slowest burns I've ever had for being into one of his songs. Used to be completely indifferent & thought it ended up a bit awkward but now I think it's just *brilliant* https://youtu.be/jTrlXJQT5Gg
And yeah, just cuz I'm on tinyfed now doesn't mean I'm done spamming about nakata :)
