OK, Evan Prodromou deleted the poll question that prompted this post, but I thought it was pretty interesting. It was something like like: do you think you should get a free fediverse account with your phone? Or something like that. The discussion that followed was interesting, and it still exists. And Les Orchard comments, "Suddenly weirdly nostalgic for when my ISP gave me web space, e-mail, and usenet access." Anyhow, I do think each person should have their own (free) fediverse server (not just an account on someone else's server). Or something like that. I have no idea how it would work, and maybe it's impossible. But the idea of making each person their own publisher has merit, for a variety of reasons. Update: here's the revised poll question.
