So if we use the hashtag for questions on Channel Two of , the conference of the Chaos Computer Club, how do we know it reaches the moderators? Mastodon is not a central system.

The fireside chat of @pluralistic coming up. The Mastodon-famous Anti-Monopoly warrior.

"Market power monopoly" + "author monopoly" = "scientific publishing"

The publisher Elsevier makes 30 to 50% profits year after year.

The market power of the scientific publishers stems from the influence on scientific careers. So I am building a system to independently determine what are good scientific articles. It will not give me the monopoly profits, but better science. @GrassrootsReview

Are there ways communities could break other monopolies? "We have people."

@VictorVenema @pluralistic Async ACK by optimism :) I recorded your question but there have been a lot of similar questions, so it depends on how the chat moves, now.

@raumfunkstelle Thanks. Was not bugging to have a higher priority, was just wondering if the question was noticed. Great that federation works. @pluralistic
