• University College London
• The DECODE project

Javi's Mastodon

Mastodon it is a federation—think Star Trek. Thousands of independent communities running Mastodon form a coherent network, where while every planet is different, being part of one is being part of the whole. Free, open-source software. There is no advertising, monetizing, or venture capital.
