@RussSharek @webmind @Liberapay Crapitalism teaches us that we only deserve to eat if we do work with sufficiently high market value. This is a lie.

@RussSharek @lauraritchie @Avalon their point is also that it has bridges to other already working networks, like IRC for example.

Its fascinating to see the intersection of gamergate, kiwi farms, encyclopedia dramatica and the alt-right. They have many overlapping members and very similar tactics.

"The Patreon fee-asco and 3 tips for artists who don’t want to get screwed by companies" by Gwenn Seemel

1) Don’t commit yourself to any platform but your own.

2) Remember that even if they call you β€œpartner” they don’t mean it.

3) Keep the connections real.

Wanted to start donating to somebody from US and, whoops, no $ in my wallet, just €! :)

Had to add $'s from a VISA debit card (3.37% fee), since international bank wire would add 15€ fee by my bank!!

On the other hand, the transfer was instant, as oposed to direct debit via bank for € which took a week (which I didn't really mind).

now I can support in $s too!


@Liberapay

@Liberapay @Katharsisdrill also, I was already thinking to overcome this problem just by offering to people who donate (in the public profile page - nonexclusive) to join the (public) mailing list where more indepth personal updates are happening, or something...

@Katharsisdrill @Liberapay yes, precisely. it somehow seems (but could be overcome somehow) that this anonimity is excluding donors to be part of the community. I mean I'm looking forward to Liberpay feature where receiver of donations will be able to post (public) updates, but anyway. On the other hand the philosophy behind it all is pretty clear and perhaps we need to unlearn certain habits and learn new ones. Though again, at least a personal look+nod of gratitude to the tipper/donor/patron...

direct debit transfer to went through. it took about a week. now i'm donating almost 5€ per week to 5 different projects & artists.

it is an interesting feeling to be an anonymous donor. my thought was: you need a healthy ego for this, since the recipient will not be able to thank you, so this is quite a selfless donation. ((well I can brag about it here! ;-))) but it's a difference from membership.

supposedly update/newsletter system is coming soon.

thank you @Liberapay

"... there is one serious flaw with Hardin’s β€œThe Tragedy of the Commons”—it’s fiction. Hardin did not actually study how real commons work. [...] Hardin failed to consider the actual social dynamic of the commons. His model assumed that people in the commons act autonomously, out of pure self-interest, without interaction or consideration of others. But as Ostrom found, in reality, managing common resources together forms a community and encourages discourse."

I love you, folks. I open Mastodon and I see so many people doing so many things for the public good. It warms my heart.

Did you just say "cooperatively-owned battery-powered trains to serve isolated routes forgotten by the (so very efficient) market"?
