Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Pick a server that you trust — whichever you choose, you can interact with everyone else. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance and participate in the social network seamlessly.

What is w3c.social?

For people involved in the activities of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), in Working Groups or Community Groups, and people who follow the work of the W3C. Run on a volunteer basis by Sandro Hawke and others, NOT the W3C systems team, and NOT supported by W3C. Uses the W3C Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. A place to talk online about the things you would talk about in a meeting, or at a meal with your group. We plan to have a relay-bot soon, so don't feel like you need an account here to be a member of this online community. Please post things you think the W3C community might find interesting!
