@uranther you have money, you see a gap, you host an instance if you want to

@uranther expect federation to be poor until a large social network is established. discovery will be entirely via you looking for people to follow, not FTL based.

@uranther For the most part, a little control over your little "patch of land".

And full domain blocks, which you'll need to completely shut out the scum of the fediverse if you do self-host.

@uranther

Pros:
Federate with ALL THE SERVERS
Make a thing for your friends
Have a silly domain
Have a serious domain
You control the theme and moderation
Probly more I dunno

Cons:
Docker
You control the moderation (or maybe not if you wanna delegate)
Hosting or securing your home internet

@uranther

Something along the lines of:
- "Own your damn data"
- "Do what you want"

You still need to honour DMCA and other laws of course.

@uranther I would find such a writeup interesting.

As an admin of my own (micro) instance (open to new users but created just because I wanted to):

* you get to see (and change) how things tick
* you have full editorial control as it were (you alone decide on instance level filtering or blocking if any)
* the federated timeline is more personal, like an extension of your home/followers timeline)

In short, you get to shape your own experience more fully.

Can someone explain the benefits of self-hosting a instance? Any write-ups on this topic?

Someone left dry ice in the street gutter. I totally poked it with my shoe, and my foot didn't fall off! toot.cat/media/I1NVM_0KWe7y_So

Self-care is ongoing. It's not a one and done fix for everything. Take care of yourself today, and tomorrow, and the next day.
