Looking forward to your link shares, Arjen.

Prismo is an open federated alternative to sites like Reddit or Hacker News.

It's still under development, but the first instance is online here:


It's been in closed beta for a while, but Prismo now has open sign-ups for the first time.

You can sign up at:

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.

Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
