About this Instance

Origin Story

This is a single-user instance run by me, lohang a participant in the fediverse since 25 Jul 2008. This site uses a software named Epicyon. It federates with the rest of the ActivityPub networks in the federated social web, also known as the fediverse.

Like I said in one of my posts "[on this instance] I would like to do something different from what I usually do on Twitter and Mastodon; and build a little node for creative coexistence; for slow and more thought-out communication. I am starting to realize that my use of Mastodon was still heavily influenced by how I behave on Twitter. I suspect it has something to do with both the growth of the platform and the way the software is designed. This was not the case in the early days when I was using identica, GNUSocial and Friendica. I would like to revive at least some bits and pieces of that world."

I have two other accounts in the fediverse for other purposes. My Mastodon account is for fast-paced, large scale interaction and microblogging. My Pixelfed account is where I share some of the images I make; photos and photos of my art.
