@hamishcampbell very interesting - especially for me who is here for the first day and just tries to find new contacts.
I was wondering how I would find contacts out of this pod and I ope that the mastodon software has features for me to reach out beyond individual pods.
A P2P solution also would be a right step into a solution for micro-payments which yet have not been tackled properly.
As I write this I also started an account with diaspora on https://social.gibberfish.org and will compare them.
@proposed_alternative_currency how are your expirences with M&D?
you raise interesting points in your toots.
I am happy to answer to you, as soon as you tell me what you mean with M&D .
(and btw, your timesettings are off, because to me it is shown that you did post this on april 29th of this year)
@msaunders @proposed_alternative_currency feedback on the expirence of dispora compared to mastodon. Just lay cards on table am not a big fan of dispora seeing it as a example of the #geekproblem were mastodon is #4opens right but suffers a little from subculture #fashernista resistence to going mainstream.
@hamishcampbell @msaunders I have to admit that I am very new to both networks - just started to join both a week ago, so I can't tell anything about average users - I guess ones INITIAL experience with both depends on which pod one joined, because one will find such people first.
Technically: Being on a browser (no cellphone) I find mtds' 3 column interface a little confusing (ex: nearly missed your toot cause afterwards the next toot pushed yours down).
Missing that both can't be connected.
Its a part of the #OMNbbbbbbbb
