I question if we should allow space tourism at all at this point in history.
At a minimum we should demand that the CO2e emissions are captured before each trip.
Those companies should be net zero and not by planting trees, by direct air capture using technology.
@rysiek Firefox, but also Pocket and Mozilla VPN.
@ajz That is the best reason to not do it so far. I would create a separate user account exclusively for this purpose.
@okpierre I really only know of Mastodon and Pixelfed. Are there others that got any notable traction?
Associate a payment pointer with each post. Fediverse clients select the payment pointer of the most focused on post to get paid for the time it is in focus or use the iframe method for multiple concurrent payments.
Seems like a good candidate for a grant from https://www.grantfortheweb.org/
@okpierre I know some won't agree, but I think the Fedi needs more monetization. I'm not talking VC funding or anything, but just creative ways for projects to monetize so that they can be sustained. So that developers and maintainers can develop expertise in the technology, and do this as more than a hobby. I mean nothing wrong with people contributing as a hobby. But being able to dedicate more time would allow more great things to be created in the Fediverse.
@okpierre I cannot even get most people I know who care about decentralized tech to care about the fediverse. Not sure it was ever alive.
