Q. Aral, what alternative would you recommend to this capitalist product that should really be a public tool for the common good?
A. A post-capitalist one that’s a public tool for the common good. There isn’t one? Then maybe we should fund an independent organisation from the public purse and task it with building it.
@aral Or we use revenue from GDPR fines and taxation on social media companies to help fund the fediverse.
@aral It's not helpful when Big Tech has all these politicians in their pocket.. Perhaps crowd funding would help a little bit.
