@bob True enough, except Mastodon's reality is one of centralisation, not decentralisation yet, let alone given Eugen's stated benefits, the logical next step of distributedness. Currently 75% of Mastodon users on less than 1% of servers. How do we push towards a real longtail? https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2018/11/on-distributing-distributed-technology-long-tails-and-scaling/
@ton @bob I would like to point to the new hype of Self-Sovereign Identity (#SSI). SSI seems related to #Blockchain #Identity, but in my opinion a Federated Identity can be seen as an SSI if you are your own Identity Provider in a federation. Such a trust framework (with a low level of trust, admittedly) conforms to standards and makes an SSI interoperable within the federation and linked environments.
