I worry about things like Google Workspace sometimes. Am I paying enough for the product to cover the cost of supplying the product to me, or is Google having to raise additional revenue to cover the cost of serving me? Is Google raising additional revenue even though they don't have to in order to cover my cost?

So as my pinned Mastodon posts describe, I've got some tech that automatically posts my bookmarks and annotations here in Mastodon (as well as Twitter). Since Mastodon has both a larger character limit and a delete-and-re-edit button, I find I'm deleting the automated posts and editing to add more context and shout-outs to people who point out good resources.
I think this is a good thing.

@dsalo may I presume you are introducing some non-bibliographic scheme? PBcore, FGDC, DatwinCore, or the like? Getting professionals to think outside the bibliographic universe, when appropriate, is important for a well-rounded view of metadata.

@tdotrob I don’t know if it is working…it is too early for me to have noticed any change in my feed. In the annotations, though, I talk about how this is an interesting, nuanced approach to improving community engagement. Nextdoor may never tell us if it is effective, but I find the concepts useful to consider more broadly. See https://code4lib.social/@dltj/108279817853366069

This is an interesting article because it ends with a quote from the chief product officer about prioritizing quality comments over engagement, and admits that recent changes have increased quality at the expense of engagement.
