@artificialphilosopher nice, though honestly all I really want to know is what messaging services these authors use themselves.

@calebccff @normandc @postmarketOS maybe it’s just my mastodon client, but the hyperlink doesn’t include the last parenthesis and thus looks broken. Anyone using the link make sure it include that last parenthesis

@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.

Hi @cwebber @fossandcrafts I recently listened to the Foss & Crafts episode 27 on Game Design and Social Systems. I thought you might enjoy this article by a BU professor about how Mario Kart can teach us to reduce world poverty - from the mechanic where in last place you get powerful items while in first place you just get banana peels, in order to keep everyone in the race.
