Over the years, I've been studying a handful of different fediverse platforms that bring a lot of interesting concepts to the table.
As someone that has studied and [reported on](https://wedistribute.org/) the developments of these various systems, I've decided to put together a summary of things I'd like to one day put into my own federated platform, should I ever develop enough brainpower to actually develop one.
In 2018, a platform was launched to build an open, decentralized web for videos. In 2021, the network is still struggling to grow. I take a look into some of the problems with content discovery, along with some small suggestions for instance admins.
I think PeerTube has really come along as a project, but I think it's caught in a situation where the technical aspects are advancing far faster than the communal ones. In order for PeerTube to actually succeed in practice, I believe that creators ought to reach out to one another to create a type of loose community where we actually follow each other, comment on each other's stuff, etc, kind of like YouTube's early years.
