Re: Mastodon.social’s role in decentralization @Gargron
I cannot help but bring up one solution that would be very effective here on a variety of levels: finishing the account migration feature so it maintains followers in the move.

"The events of 1933-1945 should have been fought no later than 1928. Later it was too late. One must not wait until the struggle for freedom is called treason. One must not wait until the snowball has become an avalanche. You have to crush the rolling snowball. No one stops the avalanche."

It‘s a bit complicated, but I love that it‘s working.
5-star rating systems are useless, because people only rate things if they love them or hate them. This leads to a characteristic 'J-curve'
chaos.social - because anarchy is much more fun with friends.
chaos.social is a small Mastodon instance for and by the Chaos community surrounding the Chaos Computer Club. We provide a small community space - Be excellent to each other, and have a look at what that means around here.
