Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:

This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍

Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.

(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

In a society that values money (not just capitalism!) any cost that can be externalized is free: polluting the environment is free because “the environment” has no monetary value. Hence regulations and fines and taxes. Understanding this makes or breaks a liberal position: if you want the freedom to do whatever claiming the market will fix it, or if you want to abolish regulations and fines and taxes without careful consideration, we cannot be friends.
