It's probably naive, but I genuinely wonder where we'd be today re: people "self-hosting" servers if IPv6 had already seen wider adoption, more upload bandwidth were generally available, and "decentralization" had focused more on "sync eventually" instead of, like, XMPP-style.

@zkat it'd be better and easier, but still means "run your own server", which is the domain of a pretty small group of people.

(Yeah, that kind of stuff makes it a lot easier, but it's still on par with "doing your own car maintenance")


@astraluma @zkat that last part used to be a lot easier when cars weren't made out of computers, none of which allow access
