If you want to talk about your personal communication, then I respect
whatever choices you have made there. But Mastodon is to me right now an
opportunity to put the message of a (all) hackerspaces out there.

As I wrote in another email:

I believe that the idea of an open space for everyone to drop in, to
better themselves, to learn, develop, educate themselves or others, to
start great projects and to make this world a better place is so
important, that we should not stay in our own filterbubble and instead
carry our message throughout the internet, using whatever technology is
used by others that are not in our filterbubble.

Again, thats our world, RSS, the wiki at hackerspaces.org. These are
channels that we use for our internal communication. Social Networks are
always and have always been for the external communication. One-to-Many.

I hope I dont come across as too rude, but I dont want cool content from
you, neither will I build this or that to adhere to your personal
technological preferences. I am talking about an opportunity for all of
us on to connect hackerspaces together which will amplify our voice when
we talk externally to all of those that are not familiar with RSS or a
website that you only find if you are familiar with the concept of a
hackerspace and have already the wish to visit or join one, which is not
the case for a lot of people out there.
