"Will Mastodon make any money?" scream the journalists, who have forgotten the joy of building sandcastles on the beach

@way - They are obsessed with growth - tho only reason the write about us in the first place.

@way There are many things we need that don't have tidy business models. Mastodon has its distributed nature working in its favor, unlike centralized services whose long-term sustainability is also in doubt.

@xj9 @gargron @way
Nor do they understand communities and cooperation on a basic level.

@way I agree. Why does everything have to be about money?

@way People close to Silicon Valley have forgotten the meaning of "free."

They're so ingrained with capitalism they want to monetise everything. Even charity.

"How can we monetise the moral rot of late capitalism?"

@way They're the same people who think we should monetise environmentalism. Look at all the worship of Tesla.

@way who cares? Twitter has been leaking cash since day one

@way "Excuse me do you have a business plan for your sand castle construction as a service?"

@way people need to understand Mastodon first, before asking about profiting

@way sandcastles usually don't try to fill permanent community and project manager positions, though.

@way They already have Twitter and the whole of the web to themselves plastered with ads. I have no idea why would anyone here care for their litter getting privileged treatment. They can have their own instances to pollute with ads if they wish.
