Hot take: We should aim for 'decentralized' networks that are simple enough that they can be understood and improved by lots of people.
The 'fully distributed, but only fully understood by a few people' pattern is unsustainable and tends toward a society where software developers are not representative of software users.
@christianbundy fully agreed. Until I can move, say, my church groups from FB+Zoom to Friendica+Jitsi we're not ready yet
@michel_slm Yes! And I'd also argue that until you (personally!) could easily re-implement a basic Friendica + Jitsi client from scratch* I'd argue that we're not ready yet.
* Using boring technology, I kinda like 'the python standard library + libsodium' or something as a rule of thumb.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
