Any efforts we/I can support to encourage non-white, especially black American and African scholars, to make the effort to join Mastodon? It's pretty European and white around here right now. I am not feeling great about how we are reproducing/exacerbating extant power structures...

@MikeHabegger
I agree with you, although I've only been here 3 days so I haven't yet seen the full scope of the problem. But it's an important reason I'm still attached to Twitter. I suppose it helps to let everyone know you're on mastodon and then maintain the same engagement with like-minded people. It will take some time, but eventually if Twitter becomes a cesspool there will be more digital community building over here.

assemblag.es is a Mastodon instance for people interested in thinking creatively and critically about technology, in the broadest sense. The only requirement is that you keep to the code of conduct! Note: we've paused new signups for a few days while we deal with the #twittermigration influx - please do request an invite, but be aware that for now functions more like a 'waiting list' than a knock on the door, until our numbers stabilise again :-)
