Fediverse rambling Show more
The current phase of the fediverse is mostly franchises.
Setting up an instance is mostly opening a new Edible Derangements or what have you. A little more flexibility on customizing the offerings, and less onerous licensing fees, but still iterations on a common design. Maybe the indie web integrations are like IGA  member stores. I dunno, the analogy is getting stretched.
My reason for stating this is to lead to me saying that I am still looking forward to seeing more one-off unique entry points into the fediverse spring up in the future, so consider it said.

@nightpool yeah, stuff like that is the type of thing I'm yearning for - more flexing of the underlying protocol platform from different directions, I think. I feel like it'll only lead to even more interesting possibilities for everyone in the long run. We've got a solid body of "big" implementations of various flavors, but I'm really looking forward to seeing some more small stuff filling the niches.
This is a private instance that @firstname.lastname@example.org is using for development and testing.
