Server admins provide places to discuss, share content, communicate etc. People on those servers, maybe except the server admins, are rather welcomed (or not) visitors, rather than citizens. Actually, I have no good idea where accounts should be stored, as well as which data should be tied to an account (contacts, social graph?). Either it could be a separate trusted account server, or just data on your device encrypted with a key, or maybe it can be stored in a blockchain. Feedback is welcome!
The more I think, the more I come to an idea that an account should not be tied to a server, servers are more about functionality. Also, I should be definitely not the first to think about it, so if anyone knows of such tech applicable to Fediverse, let me please know. And no, I don't mean accounts that can be copied/migrated from server to server, like in #Hubzilla. I mean accounts are stored elsewhere separately from any content server such as a #Mastodon or #Lemmy or #Mobilizon instance.

- server tech compliance status published somewhere on a regular basis: i.e. if a server has very little downtime within a certain period, it receives a certain "stability" badge
- server non-tech compliance status, such as predictable moderation policy (this one is tricky to specify of course)
@hhardy01 @shuro @no_signal @isagalaev @Doudouosm @iron_bug My own 5 cents of ideas:
- portable identities, such as in Hubzilla or being discussed in Matrix
- or identity tied to a separate identity server not affiliated with your content on any Mastodon server
- portable content, with official content channel duplicates (again, Hubzilla and Matrix)

In this ABC interview from 1974, science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke makes the bold claim that one day computers will allow people to work from home and ...
Continuing my previous thought on cross-instance shadow auth: I think for now it could be solved using two things:
- a client or a web interface trying to keep everything inside it as much as possible: opening links to external posts, subscribing to accounts etc. - this may require a sort of autodetection whether a link is a link to another Fediverse instance or not
- a browser extension having the same above autodetection capabilities, that plays its part on actual external instances
