I love discovering, promoting, and attending local startup and STEM events (and hackathons and geek meetups and...). I spent so much time tracking and sorting them, I decided I might as well build a site to share them. Check out HawaiiCal.com... and please help spread the word (and add your own events) if you like it! #hawaii #startups #stem #scitech #events #calendar #thatnewsitesmell https://www.hawaiical.com/events/list/
Anyone really into micro.blog? Many people I follow are really into it, but I'm not sure I understand the draw. #microblog
@Gargron @dansup Fascinating. Thanks. Scrolled back to see the specific @mastodonusercount update. I saw some hubbub on Twitter, I'm gathering it's not gone smoothly for them. Pity. https://bitcoinhackers.org/@mastodonusercount/102383537675433031
Whoa. What happened on July 5 to make the @mastodonusercount register an additional million users in the #mastodon #fediverse? https://bitcoinhackers.org/@mastodonusercount/102396749689401626
@Gargron Any plans to allow more flexibility for moderated instances? I'd love to direct new users to a survey form rather than a single text box to explain their interest in joining. Allowing us to specify custom text or just an "application" URL would be fantastic!
