Wow, i just learned that the #MIT has its own #Mastodon instance. https://mastodon.mit.edu/about
@bjoern I'm from New England. Mass, actually. Now that's just awesome. You never hear about colleges joining these revolutions.
@cambridgeport90 @bjoern There's also https://mastodon.acc.sunet.se hosted at a Swedish university and as far as public instances I know the French government has https://mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr though I think it's only open to people with a gouv.fr email address, and from Brazil there is https://social.lab.cultura.gov.br which I believe is operated by or with support of their Ministry of Culture. (My Portugese leaves something to be desired.)
@frankiesaxx @bjoern I confirm that accounts on mastodon.etalab.gouv.fr are open to civil servants (.gouv.fr emails and a few others), but it is fully connected to the fediverse :)
We installed it almost a year ago.
Instance ouverte pour test - lire les CGU Elle est ouverte à tout agent possédant un compte email en ".gouv.fr" ou la liste disponible sur https://forum.etalab.gouv.fr/t/mastodon-le-reseau-social-libre-et-decentralise-en-plein-decollage/3538
