Toot go brrr
@Gargron toot machine go brrr
@Gargron good post eugen
@Gargron boost that toot
@selfsamesynonym 1. Yes, I remember the Samsung cash. It's right here, with a full usage history:
2. I was paid by the company Purism, which makes free software laptops and phones, for which I worked a whole year as a web designer prior, to make a few adjustments for their new Mastodon server before it launched
3. Nobody paid for authenticated fetch and I pushed that idea hard even against opposition
@selfsamesynonym This isn't a gotcha moment. I've just seen those posts and know who I'm talking too.
@selfsamesynonym 1. I was and still am against whitelisting as a default federation model. I have since added a whitelist mode for academic uses which I respect. Authenticated fetch wasn't even a concept at the time those discussions were happening and is unrelated to whitelisting.
2. I never acted shocked and apalled about what Purism was doing. You must be confusing me with someone else. How they run their server is their business. This also predates Gab appearing on the fediverse.
@selfsamesynonym 3. A one-time grant is not a revenue stream. For what it's worth, the meme doesn't even contain the word "revenue", it contains the word "monetization".
@Gargron Not sure to understand. Mastodon actions are in hands of venture capital?
How does Mastodon sustains itself?
@rival There's no venture capital. Development of Mastodon is crowdfunded.
@Gargron Thanks a lot for answer, Eugen, ! (And for all your useful work.)
@Gargron It's almost as if they think that if your idea can't be "monetized" and sold to a VC, it doesn't have any value. Hilarious.
@flugennock @Gargron You're completely right. Value is not always money, value is many things and Mastodon is one of them. An open sourced platform for people to talk, freely and without prejudice. In fact, I'm going to add more Value by creating an open source, cross platform mobile app for the fediverse to include not only Mastodon but Pixelfed, Pleroma etc all in the same feed. Protecting human rights and civil liberties by free flowing communication definitely has Value in my outloook.
@Gargron best social media post of the day 😂
@Gargron fuck, i meant to toot this as low effort text a few days ago
@Gargron thanks eugen
