It's interesting how many of my areas of knowledge are based on one intensive period of study, often many years ago. Even if it's something I put into practice daily, once the habits and mental models have been created, there's often no imperative to revisit the learning material, or keep up to date with changes in the field. Good for breadth, but concerning in some ways.

While in the past it would have been fairly standard to learn something once and have that skill for life, with the rate of progress today (with technology, distribution of information, etc), the point at which a skill or knowledge becomes obsolete is rapidly accelerating.

Step away from the walled gardens of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, whose raison d'être is to sell your data to the highest bidder, harvest your attention with addictive dark patterns, and bury the content you wanted to find in an "algorithmic" feed packed with ads.

Return to the pure intentions of social networks with the nologo.social Mastodon instance, which will always remain decentralized on top of open protocols, community-owned, and ad-free.

Like with email, you can follow and communicate with users across other Mastodon instances, so the network is not under the control of any single centralised entity.

Not sure which Mastodon instance to sign up to? Don't worry - solid progress is being made on an account migration feature for Mastodon, allowing you to move your account and followers to a different instance.
