I highly recommend exploring around here.

Since there's no algorithm deciding what it thinks you should see, it takes a little more upfront work to populate your home timeline. But it's not hard and the payoff is pretty fast. Two tips! ✨

Tips for all of the jawns.club newbies:

Check out the "local" timeline here. It shows posts from everyone currently on jawns.club, which means it's all Philly peeps.

This is the magic. It's not a fast moving firehose so you can comfortably explore it.

- You might recognize some people. Say hi!
- You might find people you don't know yet. Find a convo that interests you. Say hi!
- Do you have stickers on your laptop? Check/contribute to .

Have fun!

Also, this CoC is heavily borrowed from another instance, and definitely a work in progress.

Been pretty inspired by Stephanie Hurlburt's use of this Q&A tool recently so I set up an account myself. Open now for questions about coworking, community, business, bootstrapping, Philly...whatever you're curious about! curiouscat.me/alexhillman

The folks on South 13th take this very seriously!

Hi! techfluent pm. og fishtowner. lover of gritty.

We are doing again I see. Cool!

I’m Logan. 35 years old, married, service industry veteran. 2 years ago I decided to switch careers into tech. I’m a full time business administrator at the University of Pennsylvania where I also attend school full time. I’m pursuing a BA in Cognitive Science: Computation and Cognition and soon a Masters in Computers and Information Tech in the School of Engineering.

Super into and & I have no free time.

Welcome new folks!

Hey Philly procrastinators! You know who you are. 😉

Finish Up Weekend is coming back to @indyhall again in January. 🚀Make sure you’re on the waiting list for early access/discounted tix.

Hello jawns.club! I'm a newly minted videographer/photographer after many years in tech and I'm loving the new work. I've lived in the Philly area my whole life and I'm excited about how vibrant it has become. I joined your club hoping to bounce around ideas and possibly find collaborators. Thanks for the invite.

This is what you all missed by not going to IndyHall’s Friendsgiving, pão de queijo and Dulce de leche!

Has anybody put together a list of small-to-medium event venues in Philly?

Wanting something I can sort on factors like neighborhood and vibe as well as capacity and resources (like rooms for breakouts).

If not, plz share your fav venues (of all sizes) so I can build a database to share.

Tired of people skipping Philly on their book tours, I started an event series called "Pilcrow House." There are already two events in works!

11/29 - Scott Belsky (Adobe) on "The Messy Middle" of starting a new thing.

1/10 - Taylor Lorenz (The Atlantic) on online culture wars, misinformation and memes.

Tix are $25 and under: pilcrowhouse.ticketleap.com/

See you there?

oh also should be a thing i dunno what we should do - maybe a giant mariokart meetup or we all join antifa or something but we can't let that hashtag go to waste

i'm still here and reading all your fabulous toots - i just tend to draw a blank when looking at the compose field myself.

I'M SO DAMN BUSY and it feels pgood to be honest.

Already on another Mastodon instance, but found you guys via . First timer this year, great experience, props to the organizers and sponsors. See you next year!

Experimenting with indoor drone flight footage of @indyhall. Up next: plan shots and path so our pilot can practice, and then plan a day when the place is in action to capture life at the Hall.

Noticing a trend among the talks I’ve sampled so far — from installing dark patterns to posting awful tweets, a lot of our friends are being asked to do horrible, horrible things at work. We seem to be spending a lot of time assuring folks “it’s okay to refuse to do that, and here’s a thing that would work much better.”

Admiring the people who brought their kids to @BarCampPhilly. Can't wait to bring our kiddos.
