Being on Mastodon / the #fediverse reminds me of connecting with music-lovers on MySpace many eras ago. I’m meeting new friends and potential collaborators. It’s like being at a house party with an epic soundtrack that’s a mixtape of music by the guests.
This ability to truely connect has been sacrificed in the name of dopamine fuelled ‘engagement’ almost everywhere else. We have something special here.
I miss all the animated gifs and CSS hacks though!
While there is no record of the #Myspace page, I found the Flash file and managed to do a screen recording.
Edit: It even had the date (2006) on the Floppy name.
@xylander We've never been on corporate social media, and it really sounds like a collection of weird places.
I set up my own Mastodon server because of course I did.
