That’s an interesting premise, that somehow a currency is going to change the nature of how “the internet” is funded. So, none of the world’s currencies have done this, but a “currency” that isn’t really a currency is going to change around the entire economics of everything online?

There’s so many fun presumptions in that notion that it’s hard to even start a discussion.

The short answer is no. I think there’s more than enough evidence out there that cryptocurrencies will remain niche, and this ridiculous ‘web3’ notion of every interaction being a transaction will simply just not occur, much as any bros try and wish and argue for it.

You vote with your dollars, and if you care what Apple is doing, you tell them.

Buy a non-Apple system, write to Apple, and let them know why you’re not longer purchasing Apple equipment.

It’s really simple, if you want companies to change, you stop giving them money (and you tell them why if you’re no longer doing so). Giving them money tells them they’re doing everything just right.

I already had the dedicated server, so it was easy enough to just virtualhost it.

To clarify that comment - I handed over to as I no longer have the time to run, maintain, and moderate it. The cost for me was negligible at this point - I had it sitting on a dedicated server that ran several other things.

… uh, “/c/opensource”?

Fuck Microsoft.

/c/Canada got a new icon!
I know, pretty lame announcement, but I figured it might be nice to have an announcement post that wasn't just 'I updated the lemmy code again today'. Heh, enjoy!

Updated again today
We're on the new release 0.11.0 now - not sure why the frontend is showing "BE: unknown version", but we'll look in to that.

Updated the site today
Howdy all, Updated to lemmy 0.10.3 today, which contains some bugfixes and tweaks. Much has occurred on the back-end so mostly out of sight for regular users. If you notice any issues, please drop me a line!

Updated code today
Howdy! I've just updated from lemmy 0.9.6 to 0.9.7. More info on the changes at:

Updating complete! (For the moment)
It looks like the Lemmy devs are releasing fast and furiously, as even when I was updating to what was the current version this morning (0.9.5), they released 0.9.6! So, a variety of updates later, we're up to date. Along with these updates, the newest versions of the Lemmur mobile client should work here as well. Have a great weekend!

Happy Holidays!
Howdy all! I know we're a brand new instance, but as we're public and users are joining up, I felt that I should post this. I know we're past Christmas already, but I hope everyone is doing as well as possible, staying safe, and having an enjoyable end of the year. I'm very much looking forward to Lemmy developments and refinements, and specifically being a fantastic and useful spot for people. Here's hoping the bugs of 2020 take a hike in 2021 and that it's a much merrier year over all. Peace to all!

Hello all, and welcome! We're launching our reddit-like Lemmy-based site today! And, by launch, I guess it means we're just opening the doors, as everything appears to be in place and functional, as far as my testing-so-far has gone. While the platform we're running on, Lemmy, is pretty beta software and has many items to refine, it's been in a very usable state for some time. Recently they were able to add in working federation, so sites can be linked together and not in small, individual silos (unless that's what one wants). So you'll see some communities here that appear to be from elsewhere, and they have a more involved community name, and you'll see a variety of communities that originate here as well. It won't really matter to your experience, you'll be able to make use of either type without any real difference. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or post in the lemmy support forum (which I'll link up here as soon as we have it federated here). Thanks, and enjoy the service!
