Hey y'all, I'm trying to raise the money I need to get back into school so I can finish my degree and, well, just keep on living :P
Boosts are super appreciated
my other thought on funding fediverse development is even more depressing.
Gargron gets $4,834 per month from Patreon and a lot of people say that is way too much.
but the reality is, that’s barely making it, especially in an expensive place to live like Germany.
what this tells me is that the best path to funding fediverse development is to work with organizations which want to leverage the technology, which is essentially the path we are taking with Pleroma (a few features landing in Pleroma lately have been funded in some way), but that is controversial in it’s own way.
anyway, this is something to blog about eventually, once we have more concrete data about where things are going, so we can do a better comparison.
#instance #admins, #new #users toot #introductions without hashtagged #interests, and I suspect they do because they aren't aware only the hashtagged keywords are searchable. I see #tutorials and #guides omit this useful hint, but I don't know why.
I used to search weekly for hashtag-rich intros to boost; they're rarer now.
In case you missed it:
The Brave web browser is funded by venture capital and sells advertising space to replace the ads it blocks.
Here's their ad-sales site:
"funded by Founders Fund, Foundation Capital, Propel Venture Partners, Pantera Capital, DCG, Danhua Capital, and Huiyin Blockchain Venture among others."
You might want to consider other options if you still use #Brave.

We will be testing ActivityPub federation on a public instance this weekend. #helloPixelfed
albin.social rundown Show more
albin.social is a new mastodon derived instance
it has many negative traits that mean you as an instance admin should defederate
-harvests user data, presumably from all federation as well as local users
-plans to run off ads fed that data
-for profit, corporate adjacent based monetary goals, instead of user centric
-no features to sell you other than "ads = stability" in their twisted logics
boost and defederate, folx
