China going vegan? Massive decline in meat consumption, vegetarian restaurants double in 5 years in Shanghai
In 2014, a Xinhua news agency report claimed that more than 50 million people shun meat in their meal in https://www.financialexpress.com/world-news/china-going-vegan-massive-decline-in-meat-consumption-vegetarian-restaurants-double-in-5-years-in-shanghai/1079511/ ... https://framasphere.org/p/4989873
My timeline is a bizarre medley of technical rambling, cute anime girls, highly diverse discussions about politics, people talking about shows and movies, and discussions of a far more personal nature. And shitposting.
We did it! WE REPLACED TWITTER COMPLETELY.
Having said that I look forward to a smoother Pleroma experience of following Masto users. I can definitely see migrating to that platform as my main federated social identity. Me, on a lightweight server of one, running off of my Raspberry Pi. interacting with all my fave users/instances of any fed type. That's my goal. Decentralized as heck.
Pleroma is cool and I had fun setting it up, but for daily use it kinda feels like early Beta version. Hubzilla is just a hot mess from a UI/UX perspective. Lots of great potential and protocol interactivity built in, but actually figuring out how to use it and what you can do with it is maddening. Evidently only certain servers are set up to federate with Mastodon. Which ones? Good question. Google seems unaware of a list. I'm kinda meh on both, as well as GnuSoc and PostActiv. Oh wellz...
Ok, which one of you did this?

It has now been 0000 days since I have posted the Dr. Doom tooting image.
Thank you for your time.
Raspberry Pi image wiped - check
New Raspbian Stretch Lite image burned - check
Reboot - SSH in to box - check
Reading Pleroma install instructions - hmmm, this might actually work?
