Are there any ethical channels for ad revenue?


(I went back and tried to bold the main questions for readers of this, I know I went a bit TL;DR on this one)

Long ago I set up one of my blogs with Google ads *cringe*. It's in a state of neglect at the moment, but still set up that way. Now I want to get more active on there again, but I do not want to do so until I solve this problem that's been bugging me. I think this has even become pathological and is causing some sort of cognitive dissonance which is making it difficult for me to post on that blog. I know, I'm a mess! Or maybe I've just been lazy. Or both... I find myself actually writing articles that would be well suited to the blog, yet I save them privately and never post them - and I am beginning to believe it is due to this problem that I've let grow over the years.

So, how does one monetize something like a blog in an ethical way? I cannot, with good conscience, continue running Google services, or the services of any company with a morally ambiguous business model, or policies that do no... show more


 

The Center for Humane Technology


I hadn't visited their site in quite some time... so long, in fact, that I had forgot it existed to be quite honest... :\

That said, I'm happy to have rediscovered The Center for Humane Technology while tidying up my bookmarks! Their site does have some great info, and while I know this isn't exactly news to many of you, it is definitely worth sharing things like this to keep these topics active, and the discussions happening often!

This sort of info really needs to circulate on the proprietary networks, as most of us who use #distributed / #federated networks are all too aware of this stuff - but if you have access to FB, Twitter and the like, then please share things like this on there!

Just a little 'Thank You'...


@Hypolite Petovan , you make me proud and quite happy that I chose Friendica for my #distributed / #federated social platform! My sincerest gratitude to you for what you've given to the community, and your (seemingly) endless patience to help others. What a great dev and a fine human being! You make #Friendica one of the best open-source software experiences out there.

I hope to eventually be able to contribute something real to the project as well, but for now I just wanted to say 'thank you'!

Btw, I'm sure there are a lot of other people that deserve a huge thanks for Friendica, and I'm grateful to them as well - but @Hypolite Petovan is the person I have direct experience with, and has helped me out several times since I started running my Friendica instance. I certainly don't mean to minimize anyone else, though, and I realize OSS is a team effort! So thanks to everyone involved!

Was haltet Ihr von Jami?


Hallo Zusammen! Ich wollte Euch fragen was Ihr von Jami (Bis vor kurzer Zeit noch Ring) haltet und ob Ihr schon Erfahrungen damit gemacht habt. Natürlich wäre auch das Aspekt Sicherheit von großem Interesse.

Also wie sieht es aus?

quoted from #Wikipedia "#Diaspora https://diasp.org/ is a #nonprofit, #userowned, #distributed #socialnetwork that is based upon the #free Diaspora #software."
"#Thesocialnetwork is not owned by any one person or entity, keeping it from being subject to #corporate take-overs or #advertising."
"no big corporation will ever control Diaspora. #Diaspora* will never sell your social life to #advertisers"
