I appreciate that @purism has created the Librem One platform for privacy and security online, but I'm wary of company-hosted mastodon (activitypub) and synapse (matrix) instances.
I feel like this will likely lead to more centralization on decentralized platforms, and even if Purism is trustworthy today, they may not be in the future.
I'm excited to see their options for managing these services in a self-hosted manner, though. I may need to pick up some beefier hardware to try this out.
Anyone here on toyhou.se and have an invite? @ruca is looking to join
Here's my neat mastodon instance on a collection of Single Board Computers. This instance is for me and a few of my local friends.
