I'm happy that I'll be part of two meetings this month in front of the EU Commission talking about decentralized social networks and the work we've done https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/ec-ngi0-liaison-webinars-and-workshop-april-2021/1539
I believe this conversation is an important one to have, and I'd like to expand on why below.
@cwebber @how Politicians, who are having coffee with GMAFIA lobbyists on a regular basis, are being told not to listen to people of the fediverse, because it is just an amateur club that doesn't contribute to economic growth. As a result we are being reduced to exactly that and hence forced to DIY.
The catch being that infinite economic growth is impossible..
