There's a focus on the origins of American comfort food, and it has a general retro aesthetic harking back to a 1950s USA.

I've set up a third account which will boost interesting videos from across the Fediverse. It's a brand new account so fairly empty, but if this kind of thing interests you please feel free to follow:

Inaugural boost is for the incredible Ed Wood horror sci-fi classic "Plan 9 From Outer Space", hosted by public domain and creative commons video site vidcommons.org

Happy birthday to Windows. Though I might have moved on to myself, I do still have periods of fond memories we shared...Windows 95, Windows 2000, Windows 7, (not you Windows ME).


If, like me, you've heard of IPFS but never really knew much about it, this is a pretty good intro!


For any Reddit users out there (yeah, I know, not open-web, but you can't ignore millions of users), TILvids has a sub-reddit at /r/tilvids Feel free to join us there, where I also post TILvids videos of the day, just like on Mastodon!


@the_white_wolf @futureisfoss I'm with you there! Framasoft (makers of PeerTube) have built a wonderful tool, but I do feel many instances are not making good use of its potential.

You should consider starting your own instance, and try to recruit others making similar content and build a community around it. Hosting is not very expensive (at least initially) nowadays. I'd be happy to give you any advice I can to get started!

Yeah, your idea of creating a place for edutainment content was great. We need more like this, different instances for different type of content, that attracts a group of people with same interests into that site.

This doesn't have to be centralized as well, there can be many instances about an interest and they can all follow each other.

This is worth a read.


Relating to the article, one of my goals for tilvids.com is to build a smaller video community. People often ask me, "Are you trying to replace YouTube?" and the answer is, honestly...no. Not really. I don't think you beat YouTube by recreating YouTube, I think you beat it by building thousands of mini-YouTubes that are smaller and cater to the community. This creates a much higher level of engagement between creators and viewers alike.

Dear Mastodon community,

I joined you because I support open-web, and also because people in our community wouldn't shut up about you. I now feel that the community here, and the engagements I have, are far-superior to most of what I find on Twitter. Thanks for being a good home for social media!
