Mastodon Follows

(as of Nov. 21, 2022)

Recently, Mastodon and other ActivityPub based apps in the Fediverse have seen an uptick in activity, due to the turbulent situation at Twitter. Maybe you are interested in checking out Mastodon yourself, but you're like, "Hey, I don't even know anyone over there! Who would I even follow?" Here is a list of people I'm personally following, categorized broadly, with links to a web site of theirs (if available) and their Mastodon profile so you can follow them if they strike your fancy. Oh, and sorry to anyone on this list that is unhappy with their description! I was in a rush and I'm sure I may have missed stuff about you.
