I'm considering something. I figure if I stop paying for premium on for example Reddit and Youtube I can spend that money on podcasts on Patreon. Truth is I don't use Reddit that much and Google surly doesn't need my money. Maybe the few ads that will get through my blockers will even help me stop wasting my time there. Not sure where this is going, just a thought so far.
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
