Hey data and visualization folks: How would you feel about a data + vis Mastodon instance with a focus on sharing, critiquing, and helping with work?

I've explained in more detail over on the Twitter poll thread: twitter.com/alignedleft/status

@scott I like the idea of connecting with fellow viz practitioners, but it's too difficult to maintain multiple masto accounts at present, and I'm quite happy with the user-ownership model here at social.coop, so I wouldn't move my primary home.

I think the fediverse needs something in between home instance and the current model of federation. Something like groups where you could get the benefit of connecting around a common idea without the burden of changing your home instance.

@datatitian great response and I totally agree. To extend the email metaphor, like a listserv (though much improved).
