While Gourami takes inspir While Mastodon is decentralized from an engineering perspective -- I can host my own hardware, it isn't really decentralized from a social perspective. Aside from some servers dedicated to specific hobbies or interests, there isn't that much functional difference between joining one server or joining another (though this could be wrong -- I haven't spent too much time on Mastodon). A lot of real world social networks function around proximity, which is lost on the web. Living in the same town, going to the same school/workplace, etc. Situations where people who normally wouldn't interact with each other are put into proximity. I don't think there's much of that on the web, which is centered around subcultures and subcommunities -- niche interests rather than physical spaces. Gourami is still very much in alpha and I haven't implemented a lot of the features I have discussed, but I plan on doing more in the future, especialy if there is interest.
