@Stoori If so, I would want a fediverse client in which I could pin that local timeline!

RT @Stoori Is there yet a Mastodon instance themed around language learning, multilingualism and polyglot people?

I could be interested in opening one, if this niche is not filled yet.

RT @cstanhope When encountering a technology for the first time that is "horribly flawed", before we (publicly) dump all over the people involved and their efforts, perhaps we can take a moment and consider a historical perspective. They were likely just people doing the best they could to achieve a goal with constraints that are not obvious. Nobody is perfect. No tech will be perfect. It's possible to build on imperfect tech as we can, and work to improve it when we can.

RT @Stoori @mayel Ok, now that I got the data for 1746 instances, I can say that the s factor is about 1.33777, so pretty close to the original approximation of 1.3.

> Think cells and organs.
- I've been pushing this comparison since forever, glad to see it's a shared idea. Federation will be to human society what the shif from single cell to multicellular organisms was to life on earth. Each of us is but a cell, but we can get together as organs (ie. Cooperatives) and work to keep the organism alive (ie. To maintain our society).

RT @bhaugen @Antanicus @Gargron @aral

Our view of the required architecture for economic networks, including cooperatives, is "instances of one agent", where an agent can be an individual or an organization.

The individuals can federate with the organizations and each other, and so can the organizations.

Many individuals will work with many organizations, and form more new ones. So will the organizations.

Hello desktop #Mastodon users!

Can you recommend desktop Mastodon clients/apps for Windows, Linux and Mac?

(Preferably ones that are easy to install and use.)

RT @Stoori The deviations are perhaps due to the still young age of the fediverse. Expect it to smooth out. But still, expect that the big instances will always dominate.

Data: 200 biggest instances from instances.social.

RT @Stoori Worried about the dominance of big instances? No, really, this is quite natural.

As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of instances roughly follows Zipf's law.

Does it?

At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.

More #elixir questions: what's the most comprehensive testing resource (particularly wrt Phoenix)?

The docs are good but they're extremely spotty. Not a single mention of mocking params for controller tests that I can see.
