@JohanEmpa However, we can use a techno anarchistic analysis.

Mastodon is preferable because of its higher potential for decentralization and democracy. Also the lack of algorithms grants more autonomy for the human. This means that the human themselves are to a larger degree responsible for finding other humans they like.

On the other side, mastodon is feature bloated and therefore makes it resource heavy to branch it in new directions.

@vega
Decentralization is indeed a big benefit.

When you say that Mastodon is bloated, does it mean that you would like to see some features removed?

@JohanEmpa To be specific, mastodon is built on https which almost demands bloat from server software to serve a site in a presentable manner. In contrast, the gemini protocol makes it very easy to create lightweight server software. Look at station for instance.
