@cubicgarden I look at stuff like Bookwyrm and absolutely despair a bit. It's great, but when something is only available to people who can run software like that, it's basically just not available at all.

I don’t despair but rather look at it and think, its great they are moving the needle forward. We just need others to come along and rethink the user/creator experience.
This pretty much applies to a lot of the fediverse stuff, mastodon is a good example of how it get closer to the experience people are expecting

@cubicgarden.com Oh absolutely – and your point about the fediverse stuff is bang on. But the problem is that almost all these kinds of open efforts get to the point of being installable by nerds, and then no further – because the audience who would most benefit (normal people) are not the audience it's created for.
