#FundOSS! Fund alternative software respectful of people and made for the benefit of people!
@pixelfed is a federated social image sharing platform, similar to Instagram (and promising!) that uses the ActivityPub protocol (like Mastodon).
FundOSS is matching OpenCollective donations for #Pixelfed, please donate if you can! 😁

Interesting - putting a value on the contribution of FOSS developers... TL;DL -> $100s of billions contributed to the economy. https://www.zdnet.com/video/open-source-developers-contribute-hundreds-of-billions-of-dollars-to-the-economy/
