I am thinking social.interi.org. Whatcha think?
This is actually the first of many instances I have planned, but I feel this is a good start, since it will largely be a private instance; that means only me a few folks on there, but still federated with everyone.
I want experience running it, and then I’ll have a better idea (and scalable infrastructure in place!) on how to run it for more folks.
I plan on approving my followers on that instance, because I’d like to keep it lower volume for my attention, but I also want to have private communication with some other folks, so I’ll have to play with the sane settings for that setup.
Finally, I plan on running bots from this instance. I’d love to create some neat services that can be interacted with by talking to a bot. Also the mundane reposting bots.
Finishing this quest opens new quests, Mastodon instances for demographics like:
- Folks in Oakland
- Business support
- Agency communications
- Cannabis users
- Comments for a journalism site
The space for intentional instances is still new, so let’s experiment!
