# Hi everyone, I am an Irish historian, working on queer history, Irish history and the history of international communism. I used to be "good at Twitter" but I have recovered now. I have long hoped for a mass migration to here! Perhaps this is finally the moment.

A lot has changed since my last # so here's a new one.

Hi! I'm Hugh from Ireland but living in Amsterdam.

For work, I'm a principal web developer at Twilio, and for fun I like cycling, playing # and bass, playing # themed games (#, #-engineers), listening to # and #, and sometimes writing open source code.

I'm getting into # modelling and on the verge of buying a 3d printer. Generally aiming to do more geeky computer things. Hi!

Hi folks, I'm a librarian in the UK, working in a university in the north of England. I support students on nursing and allied health courses primarily. I'm interested in user experience research, my PhD was ethnographic based methodolgy looking at library space design and use. #

It's # time!

I'm a software developer from Lisbon, Portugal.

I'll be mostly writing about #, # and # in general, but I may also share random stuff like music, # or #.

Oh, and I might also post sometimes in Portuguese!

I also do photos, some I may boost here but can find the rest of it at

Ok, let's do this # now :)
You can call me Jea and I like to call myself an #.
By day I work as a softwaredeveloper, I tend to work with # # # # so mostly #
When I don't programm, I create: # (# or # in # ) # # in # # and whatever else I find that I like to try out. I always like to try and learn new things. :)

A bit more #. Most data I've worked with resulted in plain vanilla tables and charts found in typical, dry, peer reviewed journals.

I'm now working with some complex data sets probably best handled with #. From there, I hope to up my data viz game.

I also have fantasies RE applying # and # to my small farm # efforts.

If my other interests toots wander too far astray from the instance's intent feel free to call me out!

So, learning mode on.

Since I moved to my own instance, here a
Re #
Hi all, geographer from the Netherlands here! Love exploring the world, especially by train and by bicycle touring. Learning Chinese, ditched Windows for Linux ten years ago. # and IT is combined in my daily job: # application manager.

hey everyone, im rather new here but i figure this account would be used for posting tea session photos, and perhaps doodles or other passing thoughts. i'm a linguistics major, interested in speech pathology and phonetics. other interests include: modular synthesizers, creepy things, and the sweet smell of fresh earth.

alright # time i guess ​:blobcatgiggle2:
Hello lovely people, i'm puniko

Welcome to the fediverse

i'm the admin of and as well as some other services unrelated to the fediverse. i also sometimes code stuff for either my instance or for a fedi project. so if you have questions about the fediverse, feel free to ask

i'm mostly here for comf, which is why i usually avoid political topics. so i mostly post about my interactions here, sometimes about stuff i'm doing irl, like drawings, hikes and stuff i collect. or ranting about work sometimes.

I'm here on fedi since 2018. and it was quite a journey :3
I started out in mastodon social, as many of you newcomers. That didn't last long tho, since i got invited to another instance. From there, i took interest in running my own instance. and i met so many lovely people on the way here.

also sidenote: i mostly post in english, sometimes german, so don't be surprised

I guess I should actually make a real # since I neglected to do so before.

I'm a child of the 80s. I've lived on three continents. Happily married, step-father of one. Software engineer by trade, but wished I had become a Disney Imagineer.

Hobbies include rock climbing, electric skateboarding, tinkering with Linux, hiking/walking, learning new things.

Time for new # !

Hi, I'm Aks, also known as Akselmo/Huntra. I am a hobbyist gamedev and I do programming stuff as a job. I've been on fedi for months now.

I enjoy technology, old and new. I really like Linux and FOSS related things, and computers in general.

I'm not very political on internet, I save that to real world. Just know that I support equal human rights and right to privacy.

I also write a tiny blog which you can find in my bio.

# #

I'm into:

#, #
# desktop
Tiling Window Managers
# #

I post writing on my own blog and on the #. I post videos primarily on a # # server and also on #. I no longer post video to #.

If you have similar interests, consider following me. It'd be great to connect with you!


Hi everybody! I am a design writer who recently finished my MA in Acoustical Studies at Johns Hopkins. My research revolves around intersections between late modern architecture, sound studies, and acoustics from 1960-1980.

I try to read an architecture theory essay every day, and will mostly be posting about that.

I'm currently writing an article about populism and architecture in the digital age.

Nice to meet you!

Three months ago I joined this instance but forgot a proper # with hashtags and all that fancy stuff, so here it goes:
I am a computational linguist passionate about # and #. I like # in research and often talk too much about the importance of os and # in academia and education.
I like # l4d2, terraria and honestly too many games.
I study # and like to talk about sensible implementations of it and its future, also very into #

Hi, I'm Dahl. I'm a professional himbologist and amateur boywife from the United States. I'm 28 (in dog years) and will be graduating with an advanced degree from obedience school in the coming months. I like to read (fantasy / supernatural / mystery / alternate history), write, play video games (Animal Crossing, Splatoon, Genshin Impact, Shin Megami Tensei V), and do big baby basic bitch coding.

Online, I like to pretend I'm a dog with thumbs. Offline, I like to pretend I'm a dog (derogatory) with thumbs.

[I'm not new to the Fediverse]


I've actually been here for a while already, though mostly inactive! The Birdsite Situation prompted me to pop in here again. And I'm terrible at writing introductions, so I usually just say "I do stuff on the internet".

But uh, I do all sorts of activist-y stuff, work on radical FOSS (see, write (educational) stuff, am more or less a lonely polyamorous gender blob of indeterminate sexuality who likes both cuddles and kinky things, and I always have 10 times as many projects as I have time for, as is customary with ADHD brain :) Sometimes I even finish some of them!

While I'm an introvert and need plenty of time to myself, I *am* happy to meet like-minded people and spend time with them, and as long as you're not a bigot or apologist, you should feel free to interact with me and/or follow me!

Also, I live in Rosmalen (near Den Bosch) in the Netherlands, and honestly would like to get to know more local folks, and I also have some vague intention to start a queer hackerspace around here if I can find enough interested people. Eventually!

Suppose I should redo my ## for all the new people coming to fedi.

Hi, I'm Calc! I run my own Misskey instance (which anyone is free to join).

You can see all my links to other resources in my profile.

I'm a...
#, # major, # user, #, #, and much more.

I follow people I find cool! Feel free to follow me too ​:calc_smile_hearts:

Hi! I'm Veronica! Here's my public #!

I'm a Linux system admin and COBOL dev, who recently started moving into web development. That's a trip!

I recently started a YouTube channel called "Veronica Explains". It's about Linux with a dash of retro. Some folks call me "Linux Mom" and that works for me!

I'm here to connect with # nerds, # nerds, and their associated communities.

Thanks for reading! Hope to see you around!


Howiyiz! I'm a music writer (*cough* Civil Servant) who spends the majority of his free time at a gig of some kind. # is me on Instagram, check it out.

Also love:


See yiz around!

# # v2.0

Hi, I'm Fionn! 👋 I work on fun tech projects, create electronic music garbage, and capture the odd photograph with my DSLR.

Professionally, I work as a technical writer — and beyond my 9 to 5 — enjoy contributing upstream to open source projects with code and docs.

I'll be posting bits on the above topics here, as well as personal stuff. Giz a follow ❤️

# # # # # # # # #

So I never did an # but I probably should, so...

I'm Alis! I'm an # # and I love # and so I write books about monsters. I also sometimes (very rarely) draw, and (mostly) play way too many #.

I'm also the admin of, a small # centric Masto instance, inspired by the # exodus and aimed at #, #, #, and other general fannish content. (Also cat photos.)

So... hi!

New # because I have a new name!

I’m Nova, a 33yr queer nonbinary dork with transmasc leanings. Still waiting to feel like a grown up but also happy for that to never happen. I recently started HRT so will likely be posting about that somewhat frequently.

I also talk about BPD and mental health in general. Some of my older writing on BPD can be found on the birbsite:

Also selfies and dog pictures. Often selfies with dogs. Dogsdogsdogs.

(I really like dogs)

# hello! I'm new and trying out migrating here from Twitter.

I'm a queer Chinese Canadian SFF writer, poet, and Chinese-English translator.

# Selam! I'm Göktuğ; a Türkiyeli 90s kid, an eternal grad student, a boring dork with too many notebooks.

Doing an MA in linguistics, my thesis concerns discursive identity building in a particular privileged consumption community. As a wannabe researcher, I am interested in discursive construction of privileged identities, and the interface between discourse and reality.

Other than that I am a stationery nerd, a computeing geek, and a bookworm on hiatus. 1/2

# time:

just ur typical burned out gay (gay as in bi) anarchist trans girl.
currently looking for a part-time job in Berlin.
i like watching/reading gay shit.
i write sometimes but almost never show my stories to anyone.
oh and i also study sometimes. publishing, english and history.
my irl name is mara.
i don't like capital(isation).


Hi! I'm Hex, or Wren, whichever you feel is best, it's all me. I like birds and bird puns, hence the name.

This is an account where I will be mostly posting the end result of Work. There will be personal elements, of course, but this isn't a personal/vent/AD/etc account. I'll have more (pinnable) introductory posts to describe what those are coming up soon, but in the meantime, I'm going to post something we can interact with while I go to my mundane job on the other side of the city.

# (more)

I do many things, and this account is here to share them with you! I also hope to get more social with the fine folx of this instance, but as I work nights and sleep days, it's going to be a work in progress.

One of the things I do is write! I work mainly in prose, which is occasionally smutty, because I am occasionally a crass person. Any 18+ work will be labeled as such.

I have also begun writing my first computer game! As of "now," I am maybe 10% of the way to a finished product.

# (more)

I am a terrible music nerd. I will often speak in obscure references, suggest records you may never have heard of, and generally go nuts for good tunes. I consider myself an amateur pop music historienne.

However, if there's one thing I've learned in learning all I have about music, it's that there is always more to learn and to listen to. I absolutely want to hear what you're into and what is missing from my rotation. I love nostalgic sounds, but I don't want to be defined by them.

# (more)

I also make mixtapes! It's been a minute since I've done so, but I hope to start up again in the near future.

Here's a link:

All that's currently posted are what I call Community Mixtapes, done for the queer gaming discord I often hang out on. Everyone who signs up submits 3 tunes, and I pick 1 out of every set and string a tape together from them. I'll be going back to these soon, and am looking to see how Community Tapemaking works on the fediverse.

# (last?)

The last of the bullet points in my profile is one of the hardest to outline. Ludomantic Witchcraft is a theory I have been slowly assembling, the work of which I hope to share here as it develops. Simply put, I love games, almost as much as I love music. From the incredibly simple to the obnoxiously complex, simple acts with cards, dice, boards, pawns, et al. allow us to interact with what one might call fate or fortune. Rule sets are rituals. I have experiments and ideas to share.

# time !

I am Skye Wilson, some enby raven, self-taught (and still improving) digital artist, and art enthusiast. I do mostly drawings, for almost all audiences (which also means I do lewd stuff occasionally).

Most of my works are on my FA account. You'll find a link to my profile in my... profile here (this is redundant 😅).

Is it # time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.

Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.

I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.

Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.

I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.

You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.

# I'm Morgan, my main account is @raphaelmorgan and I'm a transmasc programmer! I've finished very few projects bc ADHD, but I can make games (in Unity or just with JavaScript, vanilla or node.js), Minecraft plugins, websites, and more! I'm also a fan of Star Trek (especially DS9), Magic: the Gathering and TTRPGs (especially DND and Lancer)
I also post art and stuff on my main but this is a techie account!

I'm Locke , 34 fluidy enby thingy, he/they. Australian living in Finland since 2018. Software developer (former CS researcher) with a finger in every pie (cybersec, devops, normal dev, cloud)

I sometimes make music, albeit not in recent times though. Plays strategy games, simracing, and whatever the latest AAA RPG is. I also used to make interactive fiction and teach.

# Hi, I'm Thomas. I write and host The Episodic Table Of Elements, a podcast that looks at the fascinating stories behind every element on the periodic table, at

I also love tabletop games, especially D&D and MtG. I'm looking forward to learning what Mastodon is all about!
