Hoy participo también Maldita Ciencia junto con otras psicólogas.

En la Twitchería de hoy hablan por qué la lengua tiene más que ver con la ciencia de lo que crees: ¿Puede influir en tus decisiones? ¿En lo que te aterra? ¿En tus emociones?

Cachis, que todavía no he hecho una Aquí va: vivo en criando un bichito de 3 años ya y me dedico a la enseñanza de prácticas artísticas relacionadas con los (ya no tan) nuevos medios. Doy clases de programación creativa con y , teoría sobre diseño en entornos libres y visualización de datos. Me flipa la novela gráfica, la impresión 3d y el basket, que he retomado después de años sin jugar. Volviendo con ganas al fediverso :)

The curb cut effect: for example, media descriptions right here on Mastodon help people who use screen readers, but they are also useful for explaining the joke for people who don’t get it, for translations of text, and for copy-pasting what would otherwise be just an image of text.

Oh, you're a Star Wars fan? Explain every purpose of the wings on kylo ren's ship.

According to, there are 39 #hometown servers which are home to 3.9k users who wrote 2.6M messages.

Mastodon is used by 3.3K servers, home to 3.17M users who wrote 485.7M messages.

If one does some really simple math: hometown has 67.5K messages per server, or 714 per user.

Mastodon meanwhile has ~145.5k messages per server but only 152 messages per user.

So how come hometown users write so much more?

Hometown is 99% the same as Mastodon. The main difference? Hometown allows posting local-only, meaning messages do not leave the instance and are only visible to those on the instance.

Here is a theory: servers focused on a specific community which in addition allow local-only posting create much more engagement. Even when, or specifically because, these messages are not visible in the larger network.

The numbers above are really back-of-the-envelope so there are caveats. There might also be other factors at play, such as self-selection. Talkative and community oriented-folks gravitate towards hometown? People join large mastodon servers and quickly leave?

Meanwhile, Mastodon has resisted local-only posting and in current official apps even remove the local timeline. This is (maybe??) good for network growth and large generic servers but is it good for communities? Is this really an alternative?

Al final se nos fue el partido, pero estuvieron como nunca. Vamos Fuenla!

Our server rules have been updated to include no NFTs:

"No NFTs! NFTs are not about art - they're about money. There are crypto-related instances on the fediverse that would be more suitable. "

Existing NFT creators (there are very very few here) can stay, but will probably feel more at home and reach a bigger audience on a crypto-focused instance where people actually want to see that content.

Modest proposal for Mastodon newcomers 

You came here to leave behind algorithmic feeds, advertisement and annoying overruling billionaires. But, probably, you won't immediately delete all your corporate social media accounts. It's not easy, I get it.

The good news is that being active in different social media could mean experimenting with different social media behaviors. If corporate social media are spammy and attention-grabbing, why not using them only for the spammy and attention-grabbing posts, for the relentless self-promotion that many of us are sort of required to do for work?

Let's leave the eyeball-accumulation mindset to birdsite (that's what we call Twitter here), facebook and instagram. Free from that burden, we can make this a space of authentic exchange, not one where everyone shouts at one another while nobody is listening.
