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

@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! 😁
Such a great read. "Secret codes. Legal threats. Betrayal. How one couple built a device to fix McDonald’s notoriously broken soft-serve machines—and how the fast-food giant froze them out." https://www.wired.com/story/they-hacked-mcdonalds-ice-cream-makers-started-cold-war/
We're 3 years old today and to celebrate we shipped a new version. 🥳

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.
Really cool to see GoToSocial using go-fed to federate using #ActivityPub! Check out the project at:
@kev thanks for the insight. Love your blog and writing btw
@jeremiahlee I’ve finished season 2 but still working my way through
Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" 🙄 #deleteInstagram
Launching a PeerTube instance
I always thought PeerTube would be the perfect tool to facilitate that trend, so I think you are on to something and at a good moment.
YTers who don't even know about PeerTube could be into this. Could be worth reaching out to some and inviting them to cross-post videos to the instance as a start.
