With the new team on board, we’re ready to share some of the groundwork we've been doing for Bluesky. https://blueskyweb.xyz/blog/3-6-2022-a-self-authenticating-social-protocol
This touches on something I want to have, plus seen with the influx of new users, a decoupling of identity from host. A number of people joined counter.social and then soon left for different grounds. Plus my changing from Misskey to Pleroma on the same host. And my eventual move from matrix.org to a homeserver.

Well there's their problem. Humans can't do sociability at such scale. If *anyone* can chime in instantly, you stop interacting with *people* and start dealing with hordes of strangers. Think about how depersonalised a big city feels. A “global, social” network is an oxymoron.
