@Drops In 20 years, it's not clear for me that they still will need to run for presidency to run the world.
@selea no, not everyone thinks that way. Smart people challenge their beliefs continuously and do not think that their opinions are the best.
Action precedes motivation, procrastination precedes frustration.
My recipe to getting shit done is breaking down tasks into smaller and smaller chunks, until they seem almost too trivial to accomplish. Take baby steps into the right direction instead of going for the big leaps! Persist and you will eventually get there. Believe in yourself!
@trechnex Governments need to realise that they've been treating "essential workers" as "unskilled workers"
Problem with "user" is that e.g. on traditional social platforms it is not really true. The users are the "product" or the "abused" (by abusers)
Many software developers have "user persona's" as abstractions, and in the process forget the real people they represent
We should avoid the term 'user' for people that are on the #fediverse. It is impersonal.
Using the term 'people' as in people-of-the-fediverse also doesn't cut it. It is too general.
'Resident' as in fediverse-resident is possible, but also not descriptive enough (it needs 2 words to be clear).
Do we have single-word intuitive names to indicate our federated community and movement? Are there multiple terms, are they urban popular language yet?
I'd really like to know, so I can avoid 'user'.
There are a lot of economies like this. Social media is like a food court in a failing mall. Your only customers are the people in the other shops but you're too broke to move
The perennial problem with mutual credit economies is establishing the income to meet everyone's needs. Angel investors here are few and far between
The way to break that cycle is to collaborate on short works with minimal production values that break sharply from established markets in significant ways that aren't as easy to describe as they appear. This is a way for creative workers to share the risk of exploring for new markets. Because you aren't going to get attention without getting a new audience and creativity is the only currency you can afford to share
I feel frustrated that just like money, so many people seem to be stuck in a cycle of "attention debt",
where everybody is lacking in the necessary amount of attention from other people and really wants other people to pay them,
but nobody has a significant enough amount of attention "currency" to pay with
What I'm increasingly feeling is, "people don't share / respond to my art" isn't a problem we can ever solve by complaining at each other
I've seen that happen for Years and Years and I just know during that whole time a whole lot of people have still gone unappreciated (even if the complaining actually has decreased the problem slightly)
I feel like to "solve" this feeling, we need to fundamentally replace the concept of content "demanding" attention, & with some kind of mutual aid community
