Good evening, I have some thoughts that are kind of meta to the fediverse and apply into society more broadly. One public toot, then I'll thread 🔓
So... I get torn between two principles & I think they're a reason why shared solutions like masto are so important.
Principle 1: own your shit / pay for the shit you use
Principle 2: there should be plenty of low-barrier & "free" spaces for people to congregate in some way.
This is tied to my being a librarian tbh.
@platypus I agree with this. Sadly nowadays a lot are corporate controlled with high barrier. We don't pay for anything so they use us as payment instead.
Hopefully with things like Mastodon, things will change for the better in the future.
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.
