@SlightDashOfColour @Gargron there's nothing to stop anyone from going to the instance of their choice and making an account, or hosting their own, and also I see no reason why virt servers need to be a single point of failure.
I'm just trying to think of ways to make onboarding easier.
Everyone can calm down. I'm in no position to implement my ideas, and even if I were, there would be no obligation for anyone to use it.
@mhu2141ai no need to apologize; I'm no social media philosopher or anything.
I just remember a reddit april fools' day where you got placed in a chatroom with one other person and then the rooms got joined so it was 4 people and that kept happening and you could vote when to stop growing the community. It was really interesting. I think a similar experiment would be interesting with activitypub.

"The 'supply-and-demand model of labor markets is fundamentally broken,' and that's why you're not getting a pay raise anytime soon"
"Working is no longer a guaranteed way of getting ahead. Instead, it may keep you poor. You cannot get rich working for Uber. You cannot get rich working for Deliveroo.
The obvious function of the so-called gig economy is to create inequality. "The unemployed" now barely exist."
@Gargron I think instance selection is a huge roadblock.
Keep laughing, but: dynamically generated instances as a default sign up, including a dynamically generated cute name and logo. Once the person count hits Dunbar's number, a new instance automatically spins up.
Pooling new people together gives them the opportunity to meet each other and create their own culture.
Of course this would just be a default option for someone who doesn't already have a specific instance in mind.
When I'm feeling depressed, reading Bae Suah seems exquisite. When I'm not, it seems crushing.
