rootDC.xyz is a project to provide community-owned, ad-free, open source, decentralized social networking to the DC-area tech, hobbyist, maker, and enthusiast community.

The use of open source software means that no one-entity controls how the networks operate, and federation places administration of the network into the hands of a decentralized populous.

masto.rootdc.xyz is an instance of Mastodon, a free, open sourced, decentralized microblogging network. Feel free to signup and use it. Mobile apps are available.

A Matrix server, which is distributed chat, is in the works.

This space, rootDC.xyz, is for the enjoyment of those who dabble, make, tinker, and play. It is for the curious, the hopeful, the mindful, and the spirited. Enjoy!
