If the blockchain was decentralized, it wouldn't matter which crypto you chose. Like how it barely matters which server you join on the #fediverse. The goal is profit, not serving a public need. Follow the money, then choose the alternative that actually works w/o the overhead.
Can this be verified? We have a solution to censorship anywhere. #fediverse
What a lost opportunity it is that our greatest voices (and some of my smartest/kindest friends) refuse to truly participate in the public square as dominated by big social media companies because of how they intentionally feed unhealthy interactions for profit. #fediverse
The decentralized #fediverse social network will eventually win, once all the other alternatives have been tried and found wanting.
Isn't #JaronLanier just describing the #fediverse here? Is it really possible he doesn't know about it? His groups are like our servers, small and locally moderated with an incentive to maintain a good reputation. But where it's easy to switch. Hmm...
Would you be willing to pay $1/month to some of these big names (who think big tech censorship is a huge problem but seem to have no idea why decentralization is the fix) like Joe Rogan or Greenwald to use the #fediverse? Please share.
So @firstname.lastname@example.org's acquisition of @email@example.com is on hold cause it might not be as profitable as he was hoping. Doesn't this prove he's not really doing it for the public interest of free speech? But we more geeky advocates of decentralization already knew that. #fediverse
Listening to the interview between @firstname.lastname@example.org and @theblockchainsocialist. Glad Glenn gets the value of protocols as opposed to platforms. Blockchain is interesting technology but the #fediverse is decentralized @email@example.com, working great w/o it. We just need you to use & promote it. Please.
The problem w social platforms is the centralization. Were any server on the #fediverse to try the "ads, algos and data mining" business model, users would switch servers without losing their connections. The lock-in fucks users for profit. @firstname.lastname@example.org won't change that.
The problem w social platforms is the centralization. When you don't lose your connections by switching servers, people choose to pay a small amount for the service to avoid ads, algos & data mining. These corporations know their business plan sucks for us.
Join the #fediverse.
Stop caring about @email@example.com's personal life & what he says about free speech. Start caring about who's helping him buy @firstname.lastname@example.org & how he has tried to limit speech critical of himself and his businesses.
Then recognize no person or group should have this kind of power. #fediverse
