Mastodon is a Free and Open Source federated social network, made with a focus on more personal interaction.
The biggest difference between Mastodon and many other social networks is that even though a Mastodon website (called an instance) can operate alone, they can interoperate through AcitivityPub, letting their users on different, independent, instances communicate with each other. This is called federation, and it even works with instances running different software like PeerTube and Pixelfed

What is the site all about?
This site came about after what was, at the time, the largest ever single breach of customer accounts — Adobe. I often did post-breach analysis of user credentials and kept finding the same accounts exposed over and over again, often with the same passwords which then put the victims at further risk of their other accounts being compromised.
The FAQs page goes into a lot more detail, but all the data on this site comes from "breaches" where data is exposed to persons that should not have been able to view it.
Why build the site?
This site serves two primary purposes for me: firstly, it obviously provides a service to the public. Data breaches are rampant and many people don't appreciate the scale or frequency with which they occur. By aggregating the data here I hope that it not only helps victims learn of compromises of their accounts, but also highlights the severity of the risks of online attacks on today's internet.
Secondly, the site provided me with an excellent use case for putting a number of technologies through their paces and keeping my hands-on skills somewhat current. Projects like this are an excellent way of staying relevant as my day job increasingly focuses more on software management and less on actually building things (which I happen to love doing!) It's been an enormously fulfilling journey that I've invited others to join me on by way of often blogging in depth about the process, something I intend to keep up as the site inevitably evolves over time.

THE ALL DEVOURING POP-CULTURE WIKI
TV Tropes is a wiki that collects and expands descriptions and examples on various conventions and devices (tropes) found within creative works. the TV Tropes goals. When we're trying to decide how to do things or even if we should do certain things, these are the bottom line considerations.
The wiki is about tropes used to tell stories. We will be accessible and fun to read. The wiki is for reaching the reader. In order to be accessible, we cannot be locked into a specific fandom's viewpoint.
The list is short because it needs to be clear. Stuff that is not about tropes is secondary and goes where it is supposed to go, in isolation from what we are really about. The only reason we host such things at all is because fans will be fans, and we are all fans of something.
