@bob In order to actually replace ads, I think we should rather be unconsciously gathering info (perhaps only locally on our devices) who we should support based on time spent consuming their resources. This is the part I like about Flattr and Brave Payments, how it just splits my money between creators I depend on.

@bob I actually like Flattr but nobody uses it on their websites
And it's not too free

@bob Flattr and Gittip formerly tried to standardise rel="payment" (reference: relpayment.com/ ) but I guess it isn't a thing anymore, even Flattr doesn't seem to react to it

@bob Yes, but Patreon is centralized, and a wire transfer to Liberapay ate a lot of money out of my pocket last time I tried it.
Also plenty of people still believe in ads despite everything and that has to change.

@bob We need to push for a better financial model for publishers at the same time though. I don't have high hopes (if any) for Basic Attention Token and Flattr, but I agree with their ideas.

@Dekken Yeah I couldn't decide whether Niu was True Neutral or Chaotic Good. Probably somewhere between, or both at the same time.

@Dekken Well, he is a celebrity in a way, as well a target of heavy memes of those who feel wronged by him.

I think I'd describe the current problem with the federation this way - masto . social is trying to be Lawful Good, GS instances are kinda Chaotic Neutral, and Niu is just True Neutral - and I think it's instances like Niu that work best for me and most people. But instead, people flock to the "official" instance.

@Dekken I don't see him as an asshole, as opposed to GS users I talked to. I think plenty of people made the wrong decision flocking to his instance just because it was run by the developer, therefore being "official" - I believe we wouldn't be having all these pointless conversations if that instance wasn't so overwhelmingly huge.

@Dekken The developer of Mastodon, as well as the administrator of mastodon.social

I kinda liked running a Pleroma instance until it pulled in a whole discussion full of racial slurs because one of my friends had one toot in it
Does Pleroma still only implement blocking client side?

If I were running an instance I'd probably silence (that thing where you remove instance from public timeline? can't remember) half the GNUSoc and Pleroma side and probably more
So instead I'm planning to expand Volatile (my blog software) to become a single-user ActivityPub federated server, without a public timeline

Dear [certain] people of fediverse
Look, I know, Gargron this, Gargron that, masto dot soc this, but why do you keep complaining
I feel like everyone knows this already, and the people who don't won't get to know it from you, because you're muted or blocked or whatever

@angristan @Wolf480pl I'm glad to be mistaken for another person of culture
containers aside, that is

So, I tried GeForce Now thing to play Overwatch, because I felt like having a quick match without installing. And it went mostly well. Mostly.
Suddenly during a match the connection went dialup quality and it felt like watching a YouTube video at 14…

@sir they keep .pl renewal at exactly the registry's fee which I guess makes me happy enough to stick to them

@sir currently all my domains that aren't from Freenom are from OVH, I think
