#adminnote Nothing is happening to bigshoulders.city! I am still admin and since it’s cloud-hosted, there will be no downtime. I am not starting a instance where I’m moving, because doxxing me would be very easy!!!
Put in my three weeks’ notice this morning at my job, so I’ll be slowly emptying my desk over time since I bus commute and can’t really do the big bankers box walkout thing you see on TV
@alex "Fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, fuck you, I'm outta here!" [Commence 10 minutes of waiting at bus stop]
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.
