As a "bitcoiner", obviously the federation model of mastodon / fediverse is nowhere near as secure and private as a truly uncensorable model like bitcoin, however it's the needed step from completely centralized services like twitter, that when users can make the UI jump and understanding, upgrades and further improvements will be much easier. We should all encourage friends, followers, to understand and shift away from the centralized model, as that path leads towards loss of freedoms.
Got tired of delivery issues with my mail server so engaged Amazon SES to use as outgoing SMTP. Amazon support assumes commercial use of their service so you have to open a support ticket to allow your account to send emails out of the sandbox. The bot (or dense human) that answers support tickets insists on me sending a sample of the emails I intend to send even though I've explained multiple times it is for personal use.
So I eventually give up and send this as an example:
"Hi Mom, see you at 6 for dinner. Love you, Jon"
And lo and behold, I wake up this morning to an approved sending account.
Sometimes you just gotta check the box even if it makes no sense.

"Amazon owns more than $2B worth of IPV4 addresses"
Not sure about the $2B value, but what I found interesting about this article is that based on his numbers, Amazon owns ~3% of all the IPv4 addresses available - and growing.
No more CentOS for me...
