Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!
When a subway station is a better programmer than you are...
A friend of mine runs a small business (5-10 people) and needs #email hosting. I was going to help him set something up, but does anyone have any insight into these services - or any other recommendations:

@roberto @jonhicks @lychee Hahah. Every time I use Docker I end up regretting it. With Mastodon it consumed about 25GB of space, wouldn’t delete old containers, and the commands to clear the server cache after a while wouldn’t work because of permissions issues within the container. Things are so much simpler without. Haha.
@wilw @linuxfiend As more people join this thing we’re collectively going to have to do more about bad behavior. I’m sorry you’re becoming a lightning rod for abuse here as well. A good instance has mods for this sort of thing, and unlike Twitter they do act upon reports. With email there’s blacklists and such for spam; on Twitter I subscribed to your blocklist. There are a couple of projects surfacing with blacklists for instance admins, but there needs to be a subscription mechanism.
I'm still amazed by the state of that industry. Why paying for an eBook for nearly the same price as a printed book gives you a file you don't own and you can't use, while piracy gives you a file you can use like an actual book?
When buying a book, I can read it where I want, in as many places I want, on as many couches I want, and I can even lend it to a friend. And that's legal.
Wasn't technology supposed to make the future better?
