We've had a few positive responses, so I'd like to open a poll for digipres.club users: would you like to switch to Hometown?

Can anyone recommend an instance for a friend? She鈥檚 a school teacher. I鈥檓 aware of scholar.social but it seems to be light in K-12 teachers and heavy in librarians and university academics. :boost_ok:

#SUCHO day 56: (Now also posted to Mastodon!) Today didn't go at all as planned on my end. But the metadata folks had a meeting, and @apjanco@twitter.com & @Zoe_LeBlanc@twitter.com moderated a wonderful discussion that will turn into one of the first SUCHO write-ups soon. 1/4
