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 scotland.computer?

An instance of the Mastodon social network for the tech/startup scene in Scotland.

The goal is to gather all the web/tech people in one place to make for an interesting local timeline.
