Mastodon.cloud restarted yesterday with new admins and new server.

The server is administered in Japan and has a new Code of Conduct.

I ask for the news of mastodon.cloud's return to the fediverse be boosted and shared as widely as possible; its many users dispersed to other places.

Thank you for boosting!

Le ciel de l'Islande me surprend tous les jours - les nuages de pluie à quelques dizaines de mètres, le vent qui prend une forme physique, les montagnes qui se couvrent d'arc-en-ciel... Le soleil qui se cache en cinq minutes, la pluie qui se transforme en neige, ça virevolte dans tous les sens pour repartir dix minutes plus tard, et faire briller le sol sous le soleil. C'est si difficile à montrer. J'espère que ça marche un peu, ici. C'est si difficile à montrer. J'espère que ça marche un peu, ici.

Diversity is indeed very important.

We are the children of diversity

252 million years ago, 96% of all marine species and 70% of all terrestrial vertebrate species became extinct. All those species were adopting the same 'design pattern', mineralized skeletons

It seemed a good design. It turned into a common trigger that wiped out all those species that had made use of it

We are the children of those few species who were 'different', in that they used other patterns

Diversity is resilience.
