New people 🙂 Welcome to mastodon.green

Feel free to post something and mention me: @JohanEmpa to get a conversation going.

Just ask me if there is anything you want to know.

Snow is ice's cousin 

Use snow to build a good house
Build a fortress in snow
Use snow to win a snowball fight
Snow is the place to dig a cave and a tunnel
Snow is the first choice for skiing
Fold a paper and use scissors randomly to make a snowflake
Ride a snowmobile on it
Look how snowflakes fall in the winter while drinking tea
Make a snow angel

The mindset of ice 

Cool your drink
Use ice to walk on water
Make an ice road over a swamp or lake
Skate on it
Slide on it
Preserve food
Drift in circles without burning rubber
Make a sculpture

Ice always want to keep you refreshed and happy

Changed the front page description. Just trying it for a while. Haven't changed any other text yet.

Mastodon.green is a climate-friendly community for anyone in Europe*.

Other options:
Mastodon.green is a community for anyone in Europe*.

Mastodon.green is a climate-friendly server for anyone in Europe*.

Without the *:
Mastodon.green is a climate-friendly community for anyone in Europe.

(the * info could be elsewhere and in the first rule)

This is a new option which is slightly different than those I've presented so far.

It seems like we're down to choosing between EU and Europe.

Thanks to @proedie @yekuhl @markus_quandt and @vattuvarg who discussed it with me recently.

Good morning ☕ 😃

Some people have been suggesting a larger region than the EU

Maybe this is best after all?

Mastodon.green is a community for anyone in Europe*

*EU, Norway, Switzerland, UK and any European country where our Steady page is available

It would be a pragmatic solution:
1. We keep a regional focus. It's a European community
2. We open the door to as many people as possible
3.The size of the region is practically set by what the membership platform can handle

If the original Mastodon.green stay as it is, for anyone in the EU,

would it make sense with a second server?

It would be worldwide and language-specific. Invite and members only.

:boost: = Help us figure this out

Two more trees and two new members 😃

🌳🌲🌲🌲🌳🌲🌲

7 of 40 are ready to be planted

It would be fun to mention usernames here, but I must ask if they want to be seen as new members.

Wage, not salary.

Anyway, a robot could get a monthly salary instead of an hourly wage if that's a better system.

AI-services and robots should be given a salary per hour of work, and then income taxed to fund a basic income for humans

A minimum robot-salary should be set by politicians so that enough money is available to fund human income

The "basic" income should be enough to sustain a good life

Most professions will be taken over by robots within 100 years. The future is 80 % AI- and robot work, if not more

That's good, as long as all humans keep or improve their standard of living

@JohanEmpa What about ‘Mastodon.green is a community for people in Europe.’? Why limit it to the EU at all?
