Yesterday, I did a talk and demo about Mastodon and the Fediverse in general for my old friends and colleagues from Viant. I’ve put it up on Youtube.

Hilariously, within hours of the meeting finishing, Twitter had a major outage, and a number of services ceased to work because the new restrictions on the Twitter API’s also affected Twitter internal systems. As I’d described in the talk, this immediately caused a big spike in signups to Mastodon.

Here’s a link to the (rough) presentation materials Mastodon, and Introducing… The Fediverse, you may use them as you wish.
