A few weeks ago, I suggested that the solution to our content moderation problem was federation. Rather than continuing to fight a losing battle to get centralized technology platforms to improve how they moderate online content, we should, I argued, push those decisions to the edge of the network. This way, servers can determine for themselves which other servers to connect to, while allowing their users to stay connected to global conversations. Federation was how the Internet was originally designed, and it’s also how I thought modern communications could work.
