Pinned toot

I'm very sorry Mastodon friends, but I think I'm going back to birdsite. Mastodon's tech is OK and I like the friendlier community, but it's just too small and too many people I want to communicate with aren't here. And I don't have the energy to split my attention between both.

I'm going to keep posting my linkblog posts here, they are automated. Won't be offended at all if you unfriend me because you're not interested in them. And I'll be over @nelson@twitter.com until the Nazis there get me down again.
