It’s just what happens as you get older. You wanna settle down. Start your own instance. See the lay of the land without fear of mod or admin. Just your own domain. Free from instance drama.
I love my admin and respect them very much @sascha
@cute this is also the animal.church philosophy
@cute I didn't last past bofa before I wanted my own instance, ngl.
@andi whew. Makes sense. You;ve got a comfy instance
So basically the trend is towards internet 1.0 everyone has their own blog style. Substitute server for blog.
@SallyStrange everyone has their own blog that can interact with other blogs so it’s like 1.0 redux HD edition
Which actually is an improvement on both 1.0 and 2.0, which is kinda exciting!
@cute I always prod at the idea of having my own instance, but I'm worried a lot about the maintenance I'd have to do.
@cute does that lead to a future where parents are admin'ing a family instance, so they can keep their kids away from bad people and others can actually report someone to their mom?
@zatnosk families become instance neighbors and instances become the new form of land/property as nobody is able to afford physical land anymore
