@Concerned_Commy federation is a really weak version of decentralization fam literally does nothing to prevent a well-funded or aggressive/dominant player from taking control of the network. federation relies on the network operators valuing decentralization.
what we need is solutions that, by their very nature, cannot be centralized. proper #p2p shit.
i do agree that we need to make hardware (and hardware manufacture) a much more dex process.
#cybredeck is a phone for hackers
live hackable lisp machine
brilliant 800x400px touch display

I am still typing like a very clumsy oaf and still keep a layout display open once a secondary device for reference, but I am not sure having any problem keeping myself from looking down at the keyboard.
I am already finding things I want to change about the layout but I want to hold off on making many changes until I have more time in on it.
