I really fucking wish I could follow other instance's local timelines. I love toot.cat but it's kinda quiet and not particularly about any of my interest. It just feels safe here.
But I'd like to grow my following of folks in open source and art communities and i don't think mastodon makes that very easy :(
@zkat Isn't that what the federated timeline is for, though? That shows toots from all instances your instance is federating with in some way, AFAIK.
Small server part of the pixie.town infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
