@alex I noticed that the link to jawns.club is messed up in the bigshoulders.city description in this paragraph:
"Boundless credit to our sister instances in Portland and Philadelphia for inspiration."
It links to "https://bigshoulders.city/:https://jawns.club%22", which seems wrong. I assume there's an HTML mistake somewhere.
It's like Y2K but only for Japan and a much smaller risk! #Unicode http://blog.unicode.org/2018/09/new-japanese-era.html

Have you convinced anyone to join Mastodon? If so, how?
Recently got back from my first trip to Montréal. Habitat 67 was the coolest part, a surreal housing complex designed for the 1967 World's Fair (a.k.a. the 1967 Expo).

bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future.1 Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.”2
Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas (like at the mastodon exhibit at the Field!), pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
