This post has earned some discussion on Mastodon and I admit it appeals to me also. "If we seriously, truly want the independent, non-enshittified personal web to flourish, we need to make it easier for people to join in." I am totally 100% in agreement with this. But this isn't it: "Why not build static website generators that people can just unzip, upload to the shared hosting they've just paid for, and start using via a browser?" This is way too complex. I've been thinking about this a lot. It needs to be as easy to start as clicking on a button, entering your email, and clicking on a link in your email. Now I don't want to start a project I can't finish, but this would be a starting point, wouldn't it?
