what topics should I be sure to cover at my "intro to fediverse" talk in a couple weeks?

so far I got:
* how mastodon/pleroma/pixelfed/peertube/etc communicate
* how to pick an instance
* CWs
* privacy settings
* clients
* how to find people to follow
* running your own server
* my own patches to pleroma for static-fe
* some history?

"how to find people to follow" was probalby the biggest problem for me when I was getting started. my timeline just wouldn't be active enough to keep me interested until I'd been checking back in for 3-4 months and building up a follow list.

I'll also talk about some of the fediverse's problems:
* nothing is private from your instance admin
* instances can disappear when admins burn out
* some instances (gab, etc) host/tolerate abusive users
* self-hosting is hard

#Fedilab 2.28.1 is available on #Fdroid. It should definitely fix the crash issues when notifications are turned off. Also, it supports follow requests (authorize/reject) for #Friendica.

Now that we’ve hit winter, I’ve cut my asparagus down to just stalks of a few centimetres high, and added some manure around it. The manure adds some winter protection as well as giving the crop nutrients. Asparagus is quite hardy, but as this is it’s first year, I wanted to be extra sure. Hoping to see lots more stems of asparagus next season.
