what i would like to see is basically a platform that can be self-hosted and interoperate -- not through federation, but through platform-wide single sign-on.
that way, i can host my own content, while others who aren't interested in that can choose a hosting provider

this encourages a healthier relationship between the users and the platform -- rather than eyeballs being sold to advertisers, the company has incentive to ensure users remain happy.
but, it's still a silo.

i still say simple was the most pleasant banking experience i have ever used so far, it is a shame that simple was discontinued because PNC bank did not want it
i should note they clawed back those features -- and several others i do not care about -- with zero notice to customers, in typical techbro fashion
