really thinking about deleting reddit after reading this https://words.steveklabnik.com/a-sad-day-for-rust
i don't think social media is bad per se, but i really think that _modern_ social media where millions of people get congragated into tiny rooms and are allowed to scream at each for as long as they want really isn't healthy.
i enjoy using mastodon because, although at first i thought despite, there are a handful of people here and the interactions are very... not-internetty.
i wonder if a (federated) reddit alternative could work like mastodon does, though on the other hand i do feel like reddit _requires_, in a sense, a large mass of people (more than a handful of friends) to be effective. who else is gonna aggregate all the interesting links
@sff the whole point of the federation is to allow a large mass of ppl without a centralized server tho
@kam keyword being allow though. you can just as easily not interact with a huge mass of people
@sff yea but you can also not interact with reddit itself idg the point, if the question is whether it could work I see no reason why it couldn't
