This post offers some definitions to help people describe what sort of fediverse they want. On reading it my response was a glib "I'm happy with small fedi but I'm fine with big fedi too." But my feelings are rather more nuanced than that. Hence I wrote this post. This particular take was also informed by the story of latest victim of investor profit-taking, Goodreads. It ultimately boils down to the question: can we have nice things on the internet? I think we can - but we have to get past the narrow set of options presented in this post.
