A friend's silly domain autorenewed. Since he was already out the cash, he wanted to do something with it
Threw Mastodon on it
1) Mastodon setup is relatively straight forward BUT, anyone using a WAF could get caught up by HSTS
2) For some reason, it keeps caching an error for every "first load" of a page. Force-refreshing a few times gets the expected page
3) There's really no getting around having an SMTP server. But signing up for SendGrid and configuring Mastodon to use it took 3 minutes
So, this looks like one of the first steps towards "Encrypted Facebook"... You can add a PGP public key in your profile. After doing so, you can ask that Facebook encrypts all email sent to you ***including password reset emails***
Gave them the public key for the relevant ProtonMail address, and there was no extra work.
If they're going to build end-to-end encrypted services on top of PGP, this could be super interesting.

If you search for "docusign legally binding", the Assistant answer, the top three web results, and the top three video results are all *from* DocuSign.
The fourth web result is a story about a bankruptcy attorney that was sanctioned for exclusively using DocuSign, with no live signature on paper to go with it.

Riot.im has also just reached version 1.0
