While we're talking FOSS cultural patterns, one we should work to stamp out forever is "It's hard to use, which I like because it keeps people out". That attitude is born partly of Linus' mentality all these years and it has to go. The leftist imperative for free software is that *nobody* deserves to have their computing experience controlled by corporations.

so even if, hypothetically, giants like apple and samsung were to push as far as they could toward sustainability, how far could they actually go? at the end of that particular road, what would impact actually look like?
and the elephant in the room is that a lot of the resources in a device such as a phone simply can't be recycled. for instance you have probably heard of coltan- most of the coltan in smartphones is not reclaimed, because it exists in minute pieces surrounded by other materials.
the iphone X was supposedly something of a step forward for apple in terms of prioritizing sustainability. however the only solid info i've seen is rather flimsy: 55% of packaging is recycled, and the steel frame of the phone is recyclable. https://www.cnet.com/news/apple-iphone-x-environmental-report/
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
