A critique of federation (in the technical sense).

Are privacy concerns inherent to federation? Dunno. The idea of decoupling data ownership from applications is good though. It reminds me of Solid and its data pods idea.

And of course indieweb which I commented a while back Solid reminded me of but surprisingly the Solid peeps made no reference to.

Sign in to participate in the conversation is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
