The comeback of the Fediverse and the Old Web
Twitter is not dead (yet), but we act like it was, while the old web wants to come back from its grave. [...]

Leaving the Basement (About scaling Mastodon)
*Hachyderm has reached 30,000 users. A ‘small sized’ service in regard to scale. However, in the process we have hit very familiar ‘medium sized’ scale problems which caused us to migrate our services out of my basement. This is the outage report, post mortem, and high level overview of the process of migrating to Hetzner in Germany. From observation to production fixes. This is the story.*

What are the pros of Pleroma over Mastodon?
I'm thinking of moving to Pleroma because Mastodon feels really slow. Maybe it's just that I've selected a popular instance and I should have chosen a more unpopular one. Anyway, I would like to know what are the pros of Pleroma over Mastodon from a user perspective.

Scaling the Mastodon - Leahs Gedanken
I was going to write an article for a while now, but there was too much work to do with the latest influx. Together with my co-admin @rixx we run the chaos.social instance. As of writing this, we are one of the biggest and most active instances on the fediverse and one of the oldest mastodon instances, starting mid of April 2017. For the last 5 years everything was simple, one VM with 10 cores, 500GB NVMe SSD Storage and 32GB RAM. This VM did everything from the database to the webserving. Then Musk happened.

I would like to see an easier way to "link accounts" together.
It would be great to be able to link an account on one instance to another instance elsewhere on the fediverse. A way for there to be an "official" recognition that the human behind the one account controls the other account, without the clunky system of having to put the link in each others bios.

Private Communities
Does lemmy support private communities, and, if not, does the "groups" standard support this?

Make the net weird again Regardless of what direction Twitter goes in, it seems the social networking landscape on the Internet is changing, potentially for the better—starting with just having services that are “social networking” instead of “social media” to begin with. You don’t need to make drastic moves or jump ship from any services right now, but familiarizing yourself with these decentralized options will only benefit you as things move forward. We can all benefit from a paradigm shift back away from users being the product, and towards gaining control over our online experiences. The internet used to be a fun place full of clubhouses run by people with varying interests, but more recently it’s just been big, monolithic office buildings run by corporations and billionaires. Let’s take the internet back and make the net weird again.

Does Lemmy Interoperate with the Fediverse?
What makes Lemmy part of the Fediverse? Can one follow a Lemmy community from say a Mastodon account and receive post updates from the Lemmy Community when someone posts to the community they are following?
