@twylo i think that's a little reductive; many if not most people don't have the time and resources to effectively manage their own node. that said, i know some people who are running their own node and have invited me over, and i have my own node i've been considering transitioning to but I don't want to deal with the overhead atm.
that said i just closed the local tab early on and since then i've barely even noticed what instance i'm on.
@twylo (that said the current crisis is *exactly* the right moment to introduce new social coordination systems!)
