I oopsed the first time and forgot the #introduction tag, so never mind the report: I'm Marie, a musical clown, industrial hygienist and patient care ergonomics specialist in Dallas. I work with @RussSharek and @Avalon . I'm fond of #clown #circus #music #jazz #acapella #sphm #safety #ergonomics #food and #travel. Oh, and #puns.
This is a "general purpose" Mastodon instance, no specific theme. I created it because I'm sick of being a product for Corporate Surveillance and Big Data, sick of the hate filled cesspools and algorithm driven engagement factories that pass for social media. I want my internet back! It seems like a decentralized, open source, federated platform like Mastodon has possibilities, and as I've been a network admin for 35 years, I thought I might as well run an instance.
