Anyway, that's my earnestposting done for quite a while so I'll resume my usual programming of "tweeting extremely rarely" until I can hack together federation to/from my personal site etc

Most technologists approach the solution to the current hostile, warped internet as "let's solve the tech!" and forget that governance is a problem we need to solve too.

So I guess first off, thanks to for existing. I'm a pretty firm believer that the current model of "every site is a fiefdom" only scales well if we have lots of small fiefdoms, instead of a few large fiefdom (Facebook, Twitter, Google). Even then, modelling everything as individually run fiefdoms sucks. I'm glad that within the network of fiefdoms, someone's trying "democracy".
