Who's both interested in #esports and #FOSS, out there? I'd love to discuss and debate about what the ActivityPub protocol, base of the #Fediverse, and all those FOSS game engines can bring as an ethical alternative solution for esports.
Because even competition and high-calibre players shouldn't be controlled by VC funds and Silicon-Valley-like business models.
But it seems to be yet another closed system. I've posted on Reddit about how much ActivityPub has potential that can be used for a similar project.
I hate the fact that I'm hyping myself, without having the technical knowledge to do something about it.
If you're a #Chess enthusiast, I'd like to hear some opinions on a variation of the game. The picture is the rules.
Created by David Sirlin, it's basically Chess with the ability to chose a different army, with different rules. There's also interesting new universal rules, like the Dueling or the Midline Invasion.
The only thing I hate about it is its name.
Btw, I've totally stolen @aral's "Bullshit Tree" analogy on a comment I recently did on Reddit. But the subject is practically the same subject. Especially within an industry like Esports, that are more than plagued by #VentureCapitalism and #SurveillanceCapitalism.
I feel like I'm having some sort of Network-Effect blues.
I'm into #esports. And I can't turn my eyes on the fact that the Fediverse would be a perfect way to develop a #FOSS esport around. Like, everything is there to start federations that gets away from having to deal with corporate companies like publishers.
But the #NetworkEffect stops it from happening, because too much people are on Twitter and LoL, to grow an alternative market around a more ethical ground for players and watchers.
Forgot to mention it here, but I'm proud to announce that I'm an Esport Writer, specialized in the #FGC, for a site called Esports Wizard.
This is exciting to me. That's not much, but it can help me open some doors in this industry.

@frootyram3n You've changed your main pod?
Je travaille dans un DARTY, une cliente arrive :

- coupe au bol.
- veste d'homme sur les épaules, elle n'a pas mis les manches.

#Cyberpunk is now, folks.
C'est marrant, @come, le lyonnais, me suit sur le Fediverse, juste avant que je parte pour Lyon moi-même.
