A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


Föreläste i Örebro idag och tekniken totalkraschade. Kunde inte visa filmerna jag hade förberett , så jag fick improvisera istället. Känns ta mig tusan som det funkade bättre utan filmerna. Lätt att bli stel och nervös när man är alltför bunden till ett färdigt manus.

Att Mälartåg var så här snabba visste jag inte.

@EU_Commission You joined the Fediverse a month ago, which is great! You keep us informed about your activities – nice! Fedizens reply to your posts, want to interact with you – isn't that wonderful? But…

I searched your whole feed: not a single time did you answer questions directed at you (or did I miss something?). It seems like the Fediverse is a blackboard to you. But we are colorful! The Fedi lives from interactions. So will you start participating, not just cross-posting? We wait for you :awesome:

This is among the most important media files I have saved on my computer.

Since coming to Mastodon from Twitter a month ago, the Fediverse is a breath of fresh air. More interesting posts, diversity and no BS like Twitter.

Have a bitch’n day everybody!

Min mobil är plötsligt helt kokobäng efter nån uppdatering eller nåt. Textstorleken på SMS är ENORM och jag hittar ingen inställning för att återställa.

Senaste avsnittet av METROs webbinarieserie om decentraliserade medier är väldigt sevärt! yewtu.be/watch?v=-v1HKXYQbfU

@akenyg Utmärkt dokument. Den kommer bli standarddokumentet för all framtida diskussion om #emedier på svenska #bibliotek.

Björn Waller är helt rätt ute när han säger att e-boken inte primärt är en teknisk fråga (ge utvecklare Red Bull och de kan fixa det mesta). Det är affärsmodellen/avtalet och inget annat som är avgörande för vad biblioteken kan/får göra.
