Content warning: Why the default matrix.org server being down is a good thing.
From network security point of view, it is indeed a bad thing to happen. But from a decentralization point of view, it is good. It is good because, it is a tight slap on our faces who talk pages about #decentralization and #federation but stick to a #centralized servers.
These are the moments that can be used to educate our peers about practising decentralization and federation.
Often, finance is what is seen as hurdle. Don't start big, don't try to be the one server for many people. Start small, stay small and federate. Together we can meet our financial expenses for ourselves.
Redoing my intro post after some advice from @utzer:
Hi folks, I decided to join Friendica since it sounded interesting & I believe redecentralizing the internet is the way forward. I'm also on Mastodon & Scuttlebutt. I creatively write & LOVE to talk about the social implications of technology. I look forward to seeing what's out here.
