Attila Gulyás-Kovács

Attila works as a computational biologist and biostatistician although his academic degrees suggest he is an experimentalist (which he indeed was) without skills in his current field. His various alter egos sometimes appear in the NY nightlife, which threw him into the arms of lazy8, a dubious organization aimed at undermining whatever system it encounters.

Attila's desire for shameless self promotion lead him to start "R you experienced?", a weblog on programming and statistical analysis with the R language and in more general to mess with web development.

He grew to refuse using proprietary software and wonders: why develop with IDEs when there is vim on every UNIX/Linux computer?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Built for real conversation

With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.

You’re a person, not a product

Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.

Always within reach

Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.

A more humane approach

Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
