Howdy Neighbours, I'm planning on growing the aus.social services...
so I've started a Patreon with 100% of the money going to support aus.social :)
"Aus.Social — Welcome to Thundertoot"
Hello to all, my name is Jon, Illawarra/SthCoast local, currently weeks away from leaving my job and becoming a full-time carer. I loathe surveillance capitalism, so it's no evil facebook for me. Maybe this is a good way to use technology to enhance human contact and not be exploited. Let's hope so.
rethinking work and the economy;
science fiction and fantasy;
I'm Jim. I'm approaching 40 and been living in Germany for the last few years, but I've got no desire to lose touch with Australia.
I think I've had enough of FB so here I am.
It's a dream for me that when this life is over, I want to be able to look back and know that I lived the life that I was supposed to live, not a life that I was paid to live.
I particularly enjoy (barefoot) running.
If you think we'd get along, don't hesitate to make contact!

Hi. I’m just joined. Not sure how I missed Mastodon. Looks cool.
I’m a Queenslander, fairly interested in most things.
Atheist, Positive Discipliner, Farm Hand, and teaching myself programming. I like subatomic manipulations, particularly for energy. That is Solar & Nuclear, or any other that comes up. Environmentalism, pragmatic progressive centralism. Kinder, not a winder.
G'day. NSW calling. I'm a programmer by trade, Linux user since 2003, open source and open protocols are particularly important to me.
Politically I'm left libertarian, your freedom extends to where my freedom starts.
I'm also bisexual, which is a new realisation for me but really it's kind of redundant as I am in a happy long term relationship
Doing another #introduction to pin as some things have changed.
I'm Taryn, I live in Adelaide, and I'm a stay-at-home mum with a toddler. I'm very tired.
When I get time, I like to draw cartoonish pictures with semi-realistic features. I also like to make things. Sometimes I like to play games.
I'm cis, probably ace, and recently diagnosed with ADHD and autism. She/her, I guess.
Hi all. I discovered the Fediverse as part of my quest to seeking alternatives to big corporate social media. I love the concept of decentralised technology and also wish to explore decentralised crypto currencies. The concept of self sufficiency is also of interest to me. Other hobbies include sailing swimming gardening beekeeping and cycling. Thanks to the creative minds who made the Fediverse a reality.
🎉 #Mastodon v3.1.4 is out:
This release includes many bugfixes, ability to remove Keybase proofs from your account, support for new unicode emoji, improvements around delivery to dead servers, and new options for browsing public timelines!
Hello Australia. This is my #introduction
I am a 24 year old living in Southern NSW. I am a Beef Cattle Farmer. I love reading and hope to write fiction one day. Avid podcast listener, food enthusiast and am in love with technology of all shapes and sizes. Space and all of its mysteries fascinates me.
Cheers to you all and many happy returns.
My name is Mina, and I'm Melbourne based.
I run my own business, Perfectly Imperfect Dolls, although like most other people, business has almost disappeared at the moment despite being online based mainly!
Have always hated current popular forms of social media, and refused to take part, when i heard about mastodon, was very excited, as i was an avid livejournal user back in the 90s, and this is a great way for people to connect to my business without me selling my soul!!
