In *How to Do Nothing*, Jenny Odell discusses the lack of a context, specifically physical and temporal context, in social media, and, while praising Mastodon, also calls for social networks that are tied to physical space. While Gourami does not force you to tie a deployment to a place, it is designed in such a way that such a deployment would be relatively easy. * **Extremely lightweight & fast** -- very little Javascript, plain text, small page sizes. Should run on extremely lightweight/cheap hardware and low-bandwidth networks. * **[Brutalist](https://brutalist-web.design/)** -- Stark and minimal, the design and interface should emphasize, rather than hide, the underlying building blocks of the web that comprise it. This will give Gourami a feel similar to 90s or 2000s web forums. -* **Simple and feature-averse** -- A simpler Gourami is much easier for me to develop, support and maintain. I want Gourami to be reliable software that people can build communities on top of, and severely limiting the feature set makes that much easier. +* **Simple and feature-averse** -- A simpler Gourami is much easier for me to develop, support and maintain. I want Gourami to be reliable software that people can build communities on top of, and severely limiting the feature set makes that much easier. Once I get Gourami to a certain core feature set, my work will be dedicated to maintenance and care, rather than feature additions. This will allow people to develop long-term, stable social networks, and also develop forks without worrying about losing upstream changes. Some goals of this project that are work in progress: * Support for [ActivityPub](https://activitypub.rocks/) federation
