OH SNAPS! The just passed its Green Claims Directive banning - including carbon off-setting "carbon neutral" claims COUGH APPLE WATCH COUGH

For my industry, this will force more traceability to substantiate green claims. AKA a GOOD thing!

Good job @EU_Commission

@tchambers @fediversenews @photomatt given Tumblr's woes, integration could be the injection the service needs.

With BlueSky moving towards finally opening up federation, I'm interested in how people feel about it?

Would you be open to the idea of Mastodon, Lemmy, Pixelfed, and other Fediverse platforms adopting the AT protocol in order to federate with it?

If those technical hurdles could be overcome, would you support your instance federating with BlueSky?

Does the same go for other commercially-owned platforms, such as Threads and Tumblr?

@ajsadauskas @maegul @fediverse I’ll be honest. I’m ambivalent about Bluesky. If Mastodon et al can talk to them, fine. If not, fine. I’m happy & content with the wonderful people here and if federation gives us access to a few more, that’s fine too.

Welp, after failing miserably to set up reminders to pay every month manually, I finally set up a Patreon to donate to @stux for mstdn.social and @ruud for lemmy.world - thank you for all the work you both do!

If you can, y'all, support your platforms & servers!

    @freamon Agreed, it's a silver lining post, for sure.

    But generally I find people say "you see, this is why the Fediverse/Lemmy/Mastodon etc will never take off" for every blip of bad news or whatever. But in reality, while the news sucks for .ml servers, it highlights the resiliency of the Fediverse - which is a win.

    And better to happen in the early days of Lemmy than when/if it got much bigger.

    Definitely fits under "alternative" lol. Where (if anywhere) does A.I. belong in music? Song drafts? Adding depth to your own work? Banned?

    @aquila1nz @sapphicbooks really great book. Highly recommended if you like scifi and Holmesian style murder mysteries.
