Feeling lost on Mastodon? Wondering what all of those timelines and options mean?

I did a video presentation about Mastodon for Michigan!/usr/group (

Here's the video if you're interested:

@craigmaloney I'm giving a fediverse talk at a local meetup in a couple weeks, so I'll definitely watch this! any thoughts on what you might have done differently in retrospect?

@craigmaloney other than replacing "mastodon" with "fediverse" in the title of course =)

@technomancy Not really, though I might have added some focus on hosting your own stuff. But if I had to do it over I'd still start with some of the history (and add some of the newer projects)

@craigmaloney cool, yeah I have been playing around with in order to get a better understanding of what it's like to run your own instance at home.

starting with the history is a good call.

thanks for sharing the video.
